BOBBY HARRISON: What will future hold for still-popular governor?

Gov. Phil Bryant has often said in speeches in recent years that he has run his last campaign.

But if Bryant changes his mind, a recent poll by Morning Consult indicates that the Rankin County Republican would be in good stead with the voters if he opts to seek another elected office after his second gubernatorial term expires in January of 2020.

Morning Consult released a poll last week ranking the popularity of the nation’s 100 senators – based on their approval ratings in their individual states. That poll found Mississippi senators – Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker – basically in the middle of the pack in terms of their approval ratings with the state’s registered voters.
