Kingfish does his top 10 political up and comer list

Y’all Politics recently published a list of “up and coming” Republicans. It included notables such as Phillip Gunn, Chris McDaniel, and Quentin Whitwell. It was a nice attempt at providing some pr for the GOP but well, I didn’t think it was too particularly well-informed. I thought I would put my money where my mouth is and come up with my own list. These are not ranked so don’t read too much into their position.

1. Lynn Fitch. Used family money to beat the money of the bond cartel. The Treasurer is the first Republican woman to aggressively court Republican women on a statewide level. She reaches out to them and they know it. She’s holding fund-raisers and making it clear she has future plans and will not be a one-and-done politician.
