Lott Plans On Backing Romney
Former Sen. Trent Lott recently told Jonathan Martin with Politico that he is likely to support former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney in his bid for the Republican presidential nomination. This is news, of course, because the governor of the state Lott represented for decades is looking at making a run.
Apparently Lott didn’t say much about Haley Barbour, but said this about Romney: “I want a businessman who has a good chance to win. And I think he has the best chance in the general election.”
As for Lott, he’s been busy with endorsements recently getting involved in contested primaries for governor and lieutenant governor.
