Redistrict gambit pays

As the fog lifts over the 2011 Mississippi elections it has become clear that for the first time ever Mississippi will have a Republican Party majority in the Mississippi House of Representatives, the Mississippi Senate, a Republican lieutenant governor and a Republican speaker of the House as well as a Republican governor.

If Mississippi Republicans were to choose a “player of the game” then Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann would certainly merit strong consideration.

Secretary Hosemann’s sense of timing and keen eye for a judicial keyhole to pass through has the prospects of the Mississippi Republican Party potentially shining brightly for years to come.
