Lowndes County teacher looking to unseat 24-year Senate veteran

Malone is stressing that she’s a conservative who backs GOP Gov. Haley Barbour. Bryan has been one of Barbour’s most vocal adversaries.

“I think it’s time for a change,” Malone said. “Our governor … is going to need some senators there to work with him on some of his ideas.”

“I think that’s held us back – so much opposition.”

Bryan boasts of being one of the Senate leaders pushing to fully fund education and cut the state grocery tax – legislation Barbour has opposed.
