Republican Women Rising In 2011

When the November 8 elections are said and done, Mississippi is guaranteed to have one female statewide office holder (either Lynn Fitch or Connie Moran) and likely one more. (Cindy Hyde-Smith who is the favorite to replace Lester Spell as Agriculture Commissioner). And in that treasurer’s race, Fitch is the favorite over Moran who was a solid candidate for the Democrats but hasn’t been able to gain traction or money. And probably not helping her campaign, even though the issues don’t directly affect the office she is seeking, Moran announced yesterday she is opposing all three ballot initiatives- voter ID, Personhood, and eminent domain.
