One of my lobbyist friends gave me this round up of what most consider to be the Haley’s Short list for appointment to the U.S. Senate.
I can not confirm any of this but here is the latest Jackson GOSSIP!
Chip Pickering – Although he may not want the seat, looking at a Gubernatorial run in 2010, Pickering is the obvious choice to replace Trent Lott and we believe that the appointment is his to turn down
Roger Wicker – Questions linger about his statewide electability and the prospect of a special election in the 1st district is not exciting to anyone
Amy Tuck – Nobody that I have checked with has any idea about her interest but the name has been floated all over Jackson
Delbert Hosemann – Apparently Eggbert is the new favorite dark horse for this appointment, obvious statewide electability, and positive name id but would he give up his brand new statewide office?
Tate Reeves – Proven statewide electability, prevaling wisdom says that he is a bit too young and untested for the old guard to acceptlet me know if anyone has heard anything else…
