Picayune, Miss. — Republican gubernatorial nominee Phil Bryant has told supporters in Picayune that Nov. 8 is the first chance for Mississippi voters to say no to a second term for Democratic President Barack Obama.
Bryant said people can do that by Voting against Democrat Johnny DuPree in the governor’s race.
The Picayune Item reports (http://bit.ly/vxTHvg) Bryant, the current lieutenant governor, made the comments Friday to supporters at the local train depot.
“I shudder when people tell me, ‘Phil, you got it made,'” Bryant said. “What will happen if my opponent is elected is that MSNBC and ABC and all the liberals will be giddy with excitement. They will say that America loves Obama because his close friend and protÃ©gÃ© was elected governor of Mississippi.”
