Former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour has turned from the public scrutiny of elected office to the behind-the-scenes work of political action committees. A former policy director in Ronald Reagan’s White House and former chairman of the Republican National Committee, Barbour is now honorary chairman of Resurgent Republic, which tries to shape the debate over the role of government. He also is raising funds for the American Crossroads “super political-action committee.” He spoke at the June 15 Monitor breakfast in Washington.
