Mississippi’s paid, professional fire fighters today endorsed Gov. Haley Barbour, who is running for a second term.

Professional Fire Fighters Association of Mississippi’s (PFFAM) endorsement is a result of the work Gov. Barbour did to help the state recover following Hurricane Katrina.

“Governor Barbour was there for us. Our fire fighters in the Gulf Coast feel like he’s been a friend, and we want to stay friends,” says Johnny Bass, president of the Professional Fire Fighters Association of Mississippi.
