Hosemann: Focused on being secretary of state, not governor – yet

Just a little more than 18 months into his current office of secretary of state of Mississippi, Delbert Hosemann’s is being considered by many as a high contender in the 2011 governor’s race.

And though flattered by the attention, for now Hosemann is focused on the responsibilities of his current office.

“What you (the citizens of Mississippi) hired me to do is be secretary of state. And, that’s what I’m going to do,” he said. “I’ve got my third legislative term up, I’ve got a very active agenda and things that I want to get done.”
