While we are in Madison County, another rumor is circulating: Rudy will climb back in the ring for a rematch against Dick Hall. An old curmudgeon and a young bull going at it. Should be interesting. Of course, the accompanying rumor is also if he wins, young Rudy will push for Elvis to be the new Executive Director.
Delbert running for Governor? Who knows. Greenville Mayor Heather McTeer-Hudson is supposed to be throwing her hat in the ring as well. Hear there are five guys looking at running for AgCommish. Another rumor is Stacy is looking at a run for Lieutenant Governor. If he does, maybe the Kingfish should run for his seat. The Kingfish as State Auditor. Does anyone think I wouldn’t have fun with that job?
Back to Lieutenant Governor. Billy Hewes, Stacy and Tate Reeves. If Reeves runs, that leaves the Treasurer spot open. Here are those rumored to be interested in the position:
R-Senator Joey Fillingane(Hattiesburg), Senator Buck Clarke (Hollandale), Roger Davis (Jackson investment advisor), David Landrum (Madison).
If Stacy runs for LG, these guys are mentioned as potential candidates in that race: Knox Ross (Pelahatchie mayor), Senator Buck Clarke(Hollandale), Rep. Sam Mims(McComb), while the Democrats are still looking for a candidate.
Now for Attorney General. Rumor was floating around a while back Rankin/Madison District Attorney Michael Guest was interested, but now the rumor mill has thrown out Steve Simpson, the current Public Safety Commissioner against Democrat Jim Hood.
