In Mississippi, Bryant Hoping To Make Obama's Day

Mississippi Republican Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant wants to win the governor's race on Tuesday. That, and spoil the evening of another politician, whose likely level of interest in the race was overstated a tad by the Republican frontrunner on Thursday. The AP:

Bryant told supporters he imagines President Obama and wife, Michelle, watching election returns on TV Tuesday night and hoping Democrats can win the governorship in Barbour's home state. "We just need to ruin their evening," Bryant said.

Bryant, the overwhelming favorite in the race, received some help on Thursday from Gov. Haley Barbour and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.
