Bryant: Focus to be on public safety in 2014

After focusing on education and job creation during his first two years in office, Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant says he will concentrate on public safety in 2014.

The Republican governor also says he has a “divine responsibility” to oppose abortion and to protect school prayer and gun ownership.

Bryant’s comments came Thursday during a speech at the Neshoba County Fair, an annual gathering known as Mississippi’s Giant Houseparty.
