BOBBY HARRISON: An accurate chronology measures conservative control

It is true that Republicans did garner control of the Mississippi House in 2012 for the first time since the 1800s. But here is a news flash – Republicans have controlled Mississippi government for a long time now…

…In my humble opinion it matters for two reasons – No. 1, it always is important for the record to be correct, and No. 2, it matters if someone is trying to avoid responsibility for what is occurring right now….

…The bottom line, as has been stated before from this platform, is that Republicans are in charge in Mississippi and have been for some time, but the conservatives have been in charge much longer.
