Philip Gunn Declares the Campaign Over

This morning at the Neshoba County Fair, House Speaker Philip Gunn (R-Clinton) spoke before the crowd about his vision for the Republican Party. Flanked by fellow Reps. Randy Rushing (R-Decatur), Bubba Carpenter (R-Burnsville), Brad Mayo (R-Oxford), Trey Lamar (R-Senatobia), Mark Formby (R-Picayune), and Herb Frierson (R-Poplarville), Speaker Gunn began his remarks by highlighting his support of changing the state flag. He then asked the House Republicans mentioned above to hold up their hands as Republican legislators who support his agenda.

Gunn went on and on about how bad his agenda has been for Mississippi and outrageously doubting the faith of those who disagree with him while getting to another argument. Gunn believes the campaign season is over and Republicans already won. Fortunately, for those of us who are not falling for Gunn's big talk, voters still have the final say.

Voters will have the chance to judge whether the tens of thousands of jobs lost under the past four years of Republican control are worth returning to government next year. They will vote to decide whether to return candidates like Randy Rushing, Bubba Carpenter, Mark Formby, and Brad Mayo back to their offices to help support Philip Gunn's agenda.

Even though Gunn thinks the campaign season is over, he sure is determined to make sure his obedient followers like Rushing, Carpenter, and Mayo are returned to the Capitol in January to help advance his policies.

If anyone is paying attention, the Speaker rules by intimidation, retribution, and pay to play. His true colors came out into the open today at Neshoba.
