If trends hold, Haley Barbour will likely be the only Republican in Mississippi who doesn’t make any public endorsements before the primary but we will always speculate on who he wants to see replace him in the governor’s mansion.

The governor’s nephew and one of his top political allies penned an email where he said that Bryant “can best help our beloved Mississippi continue to move forward with economic growth and job creation”. I would say this is as close to any Haley Barbour endorsement that we will see.
