The closest Bryant has come to criticizing DuPree has been his campaign's attempts to tie the Hattiesburg mayor to the national Democratic Party, which is unpopular with Mississippi voters. Republicans pointed to DuPree events featuring Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Earlier this week, Bryant told voters in Picayune that a vote DuPree is a vote for President Obama. He tied the state's first black gubernatorial nominee to the country's first black president, referring to DuPree as Obama's "protege." During a campaign event with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and Barbour on Thursday, Bryant predicted Obama would be keeping an eye on the returns coming out of Mississippi on Tuesday. Polls open Tuesday at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m. Central Time.
