Miss. Republicans celebrate legislative victories

Mississippi Republicans are celebrating a variety of legislative victories at the end of the 2012 session, including new abortion restrictions and an election district map that favors their party.

The House and Senate adjourned Thursday afternoon after approving appointments of state officials and tying up a few loose ends.

After adjournment, Speaker Philip Gunn and Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves quickly highlighted the passage of key items on the Republican agenda.
