    Sykes Sturdivant?????

    I haven’t heard that one. I know he is involved with the Levee Boards, but he does not seem like someone that would run for Lt.Gov.

      Sykes has been doing some mule trading and likes po;itics.

    I don’t think he will run, but have heard the name. I think his ability to self-finance is a big draw.

    I heard Senator Chris McDaniel isn’t running for AG. I hope he reconsiders if this is right. He would win hands down. I believe he’s about the only name I’ve heard strong enough to beat the crooked Hood.

    If you don’t know much about him, look him up. He’s the one that filed the suit against Obamacare since Hood was in the Democrats pocket and couldn’t do it.

What are you thinking?
