2011 Gov: Hattiesburg Mayor Announces Gubernatorial Plans

April 21, 2010

Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree (D) recently told the Hattiesburg American that he is planning on putting the pieces in place to run for governor in 2011. The only other Democrat in the race is Bill Luckett, a Clarksdale attorney and creator of Progress for Mississippi.

If the two of them are matched up head-to-head in a primary, it could shape up to be a very interesting race. While relatively unknown to most of the electorate, both men are well thought of in Democratic circles and DuPree’s name regularly comes up in talks about statewide office.

    This has the potential to make the Democrat primary a very divisive primary. The white limosine liberals vs. the blacks who are the most loyal Democrat voters. This is great news for the Republicans who in my opinion are already the odds on favorite to retain the governor’s office.

    It looks as if everyone is underestimating Mayor DuPree. Judging by his website and growing online support base, it looks like he has some major players in his corner. I heard that the company responsible for his online presence has a huge track record of taking underdogs and turning them into forces to be recogned with. All the other candidates online presences pale in comparison at the moment.

    I have been watching this guy closely and here is what they have so far:

    It looks absolutely amazing to me. Almost makes me want to vote for the man and i don’t even know him yet. We will see how far this gets him soon enough.

What are you thinking?
