Very quietly this week, Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann has reactivated his campaign website at DelbertHosemann.com. One thing’s for sure . . . he’s campaigning for something.
As the conversation for 2011 gears in, Hosemann would be considered a shoe-in for re-election for his current position. However, many think that Hosemann may seriously consider taking another step up the political rung for a run at Lt. Governor or Governor.
Hosemann has, by any account, done a great job as Secretary of State. His reforms in corporate structuring, elections and charity oversight have earned him big points in the business community. He put together a great team last election, raised a lot of money and is a great campaigner.
The questions are (1) does he want to move to another spot in state government? and (2) can he raise enough money to break through the clutter of a talented class of Republicans sure to run for Lt. Governor and Governor in 2011?
Time will tell on both, but he’s certainly part of the conversation.
