Former Sen. Trent Lott announced earlier today that he will be supporting state Sen. Billy Hewes’ campaign for lieutenant governor, per a Hewes press release. A statement from Lott is below:

“When you look at Billy Hewes’ experience and record of accomplishments, it’s clear to me that he is the most prepared and qualified candidate to be our next Lt. Governor. I know how important it is to have people with proven experience in leadership positions. Clearly, Billy Hewes has the most relevant, firsthand experience having served in the Mississippi Senate as President Pro Tempore, and that’s why I’m pleased to support his campaign for Lt. Governor. Finally, let me say that it is imperative that we elect a Lt. Governor who will represent all of MS, and not just a region of the State. Billy Hewes is the candidate for Lt. Governor who will work for all Mississippians.”

    This will definitely help Reeves’ “outsider” status, which is yet to be seen helps or hurts him.

    Interesting. Not sure what this is supposed to mean. Will Reeves only represent Rankin County?

    Hewes is the one who is supposedly campaigning as the candidate for South Mississippi.

    I really don’t care for Lott’s opinion since he said that “we will retrain those tea party people when they get to congress.” Guess we may have gotten rid of at least one crook out of the senate. As we say in the sticks, Lott can go suck eggs and bay at the moon.

    “I know how important it is to have people with proven experience in leadership positions.”

    I am afraid that in politics, experience means a career as a government employee which does not translate to statesman or public servant. Trent Lott is proof of that.
