Harper To Endorse Yancey Tuesday

It was announced yesterday that Rep. Gregg Harper will endorse state Sen. Lee Yancey in his quest to become state treasurer on Tuesday. Yancey is matched up against Lucien Smith, who served as counsel to Haley Barbour, and Lynn Fitch, former director of the State Personnel Board, in the Republican primary.

During this primary campaign, with competitive Republican races for governor, lieutenant governor, treasurer, and agriculture commissioner, we have seen a couple endorsements from prominent Republicans in the state. Previously, former Sen. Trent Lott had endorsed Phil Bryant and Billy Hewes in their campaigns for governor and lieutenant governor, respectively.
