Charlie Mitchell: Strange but true

It doesn't take 30 years of writing about Mississippi politics to figure out that strange things happen, but here are some thoughts:

The election of nominal Republican Donald Trump actually boosts the odds for Democrat state Attorney General Jim Hood should he choose to run for governor.

How is that, you say?

Hood has been the only Democrat elected to statewide office for quite a while. Hood is the go-to guy if the state party ever gets its act together. (The 2015 Democratic nominee for governor was a friendly truck driver whose mother didn't know he was running.)
