Barbour To New Hampshire Next Monday

Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R) is heading to New Hampshire next week, a trip sure to raise speculation about Barbour’s future political intentions.

Barbour, the chairman of the RGA, will be attending a campaign event for Republican gubernatorial candidate John Stephen next Monday, Sept. 27, according to the Stephen campaign.

Count this as another sign that Barbour appears to be edging closer to running in ’12. Recently, Barbour mailed an introductory mail piece into Iowa and he continues to campaign around the country for Republican candidates not limited to gubernatorial races.
