He's so good at picking the wrong guy that one of our commenters even suggested that Bryant might just hang up his hat in the prediction game, instead of eating it.
Alas, this turned out not to be the case, as our esteemed Governor's "kiss of death" tour rolls on. Today, Bryant announced his support that should surprise everyone. The headline should read as follows:
Republican Governor Opposes Democratic Caucus Leader!
EXTRA EXTRA READ ALL ABOUT IT.
For his part, Rep. Moak -- who always takes his elections and constituents seriously -- took this shockwave in stride, saying:
Of the governor's endorsement of his opponent, Moak said, "I guess I'll be in the same position as FoFo Gilich in Biloxi this year and the other five candidates whose opponents the governor endorsed in 2013 in Hattiesburg, Oxford, Meridian, Starkville and Ocean Springs," referring to mayoral races where Bryant's endorsed candidates lost.Moak said: "When the governor of the state sends out an email saying he opposes a lowly legislator, I would say our strategy (to retake the House) must be working ... Maybe he wants to look at some constable races, too."
This round goes to Moak.
