McGlowan Rejoins Fox News
Angela McGlowan left Fox News in February when her contract expired to focus on a run for Congress in the First District. It appears that was more like a leave of absence. She is back on the airwaves, announcing the news on Facebook Tuesday night:
“Team, I am happy to report that I have rejoined the Fox News family! I will be on tomorrow morning at 8:15 EST for Fox and Friends, then again at 10 am for the Strategy Room. Please tune in if you can and tell your friends! I will keep you posted as to when I will be on throughout the day! God Bless!”
McGlowan, who had national name recognition before making a run for Congress from her native First District, seemingly had trouble connecting with the voters despite her profile. Since the loss, McGlowan has rejoined the national stage- rather than focus on local issues- and that is ever more evident in her latest move. If anything, I would say this is a sign she won’t be running for Congress from the First District again- or any office in Mississippi- anytime soon.
Neshoba odd and ends. Hope you’re paying close attention to the Twitter accounts of Brian Perry and Y’all Politics for updates from the Neshoba County Fair. Here is some info from yesterday: **Rep. Scott Bounds (who recently switched parties) announced plans to run for re-election next year. ***Auditor Stacey Pickering teased the crowd regarding 2011, but gave no firm plans on what he intends to do. ****Dick Hall went after MDOT chief (and longtime adversary) Butch Brown pretty hard on the stump. He filed a motion to have him relieved for the time being but couldn’t get either of the two Democrats to join him. *****AG Jim Hood affirmed plans to run for re-election while going after Haley Barbour hard for filing a lawsuit to stop the Indian casino in Jones county. ******Alan Nunnelee was one of many MS-01 candidates to speak, and here is a write-up of that speech from the Daily Journal.
Today, Sec. of State Delbert Hosemann and Treasurer Tate Reeves will be speaking- both long rumored to be running for higher office. Reeves teased the Clarion-Ledger by saying, “I think you’ll like the speech tomorrow.”
Besides the speakers, other rumored candidates were making the rounds. This includes Public Safety Commissioner Steve Simpson (possible candidate for AG on the Republican side), State Personnel Board Executive Director Lynn Fitch (possible Republican candidate for Treasurer), and Public Service Commissioner Brandon Presley (possible Democratic candidate for several offices). Named floated around for Treasurer on the Republican side included Lucien Smith, who works in the governor’s office, and Whit Hughes, a former MSU basketball star and now deputy director of the Mississippi Development Authority. West Point Mayor Scott Ross was floated as a possible Democratic candidate for Auditor.
