Barbour, Bryant will win races on Tuesday

Despite what should be a double-digit margin of victory, the Barbour camp continues to run as if trailing by five points and is busily working the vaunted “72-hour plan” this weekend in hopes of driving a large Republican turnout to benefit down-ticket races.

The Eaves strategy of trying to take the so-called “faith and values” issues away from the Republicans was a political card that was well played but cost him votes among more liberal Democrats who found the strategy to be an exercise in pandering.
