There are two people who have been primarily responsible for the rise of the Republican party the last 8 years.

1. Haley Barbour
2. Jamie Franks

For a sitting state party chairman to get drummed by a marginal incumbent in his battle to get his old House seat back tells you the utter disarray that the party remains in under Franks’ leadership.

Here at YallPolitics, we’d hate to see Franks relinquish his role of the Titanic Mississippi Democratic Party, just because he’s been so effective at helping get Republicans elected at every level. However, former MS Dem Chair Rickey Cole seems to be ready to gain support to take the top spot again. According to some facebook comments, Cole seems to be out there possibly drumming up some support.

As soon as we hear more, we will keep you posted.
