Trump has the strongest grassroots campaign of any Presidential candidate in Mississippi. The hard working volunteers have made calls to virtually all the primary states to date using our call centers located in Hinds, Lincoln, Adams and Desoto Counties.

Team Rubio

Rubio Campaign Announces Mississippi Leadership Team

Today, the Marco Rubio for President campaign is excited to announce the Mississippi Leadership Team. Heading into the March 8 primary, Marco has growing support among conservatives in Mississippi. 
"We are endorsing Marco Rubio today because he shares Mississippi's conservative values. Marco is a solid conservative who believes in the right to life, strong national defense, and lower taxes on hardworking American families," said Arnie Hederman, Marco's Mississippi Chairman. "Mississippi Republicans are not going to allow our party to be taken over by a con man like Donald Trump who would get destroyed in the general election. We need a nominee who will stand up for our principles while also persuading people who are not traditionally Republicans to join our cause. The stakes are too high for America to give liberals another four years in control of the White House, which is why we must nominate Marco Rubio, the candidate Hillary Clinton fears the most." 
Marco's Mississippi Leadership Team:
Henry Barbour - RNC National Committeeman
Senator Kevin Blackwell
Senator Buck Clarke
Representative Casey Eure
Former Senator Merle Flowers
Representative Mark Formby
Arnie Hederman, Marco's Mississippi Chairman
Former MSGOP Chairman Jim Herring
Mike Hurst - 2015 Republican Attorney General candidate
Chip Pickering - Former Mississippi Congressman
Ambassador Mike Retzer
Representative Noah Sanford
Kirk Sims - Former Chief of Staff, Governor Phil Bryant, pugilist, & MVP for Chris McDaniel for Senate campaign
Senator Gray Tollison
Representative Cory Wilson

Wonder what Charles Evers' price is these days? Probably a lot less than days of yore. $10,000?

Donald Trump is not dignified enough or honest enough for the office of President.

Rubio is not experienced enough.

Kasich is the only candidate in either party with both the integrity and the experience to do the job.

Anonymous said...

it's funny to read Rubio's leadership team.....I read it as "we, the establishment GOP, are so stubborn and stupid, that we are not capable of seeing that our existence in any form, lending support to a candidate, pretty much ruins their chances of success!" i also saw where the GOP is wanting Paul Ryan to get in the race. It is amazing they don't have enough sense to see the damage they are doing to themselves.....I'm a conservative and I'm sick and tired of incumbent / establishment / party line career politicians.

Republicans just suck. They'll crow about what a con man Trump is, then happily vote for him in November... No principles at all.

Kasich?! Oh good grief. Mr. Common core?

"I consider myself the ‘Prince of Light and Hope’" Um, yea, THAT'S a good statement to make.....

"I ought to be running in a Democrat primary. I got more Democrats for me..."

that's as bad as old Mitt coming back into play. This has been making its rounds on the internet

Spare us the Kasich garbage. He's run Ohio like a moderate Democrat. The crap he pulled to ram a Medicaid expansion through was not an interity move. But, alas, that is why so many MS RINOs think he's great.

Gotta love these 'lofters' who down Trump and assign a litany of adjectives to him. These are the same gooney-birds who think things have been just peachy for almost eight years. The same crowd that thinks Bernie had good ideas. The same crowd that thought Ron Paul had the answers. In short, the propeller-beanie crowd.

NYT: Rank and File Republicans Tell Party Elites: We’re Sticking With Donald Trump

“We know who Donald Trump is and we’re going to use Donald Trump to either take over the G.O.P. or blow it up.”

[AND] that is what happens when election after election the Republicans say one thing to get elected then get inside the Beltway and vote 180 degrees opposite what they told the folks back home they were going to do.


Meanwhile... said...

It is very hard for the life long politicians to understand people are tired of electing the same people and not getting what they really need.
The republicans are trying their best to loose the election thinking they can force the people to back someone no one wants.
The democrats are trying to elect a criminal who may be arrested before the election.

The only person left standing will be Bernie. All he has to do is stay in and wait. The democrats and republicans will do the rest for him.

Mitch Tyner? ROFL

This is Donald's skill in hiring good people?

And, Charles Evers? Are you kidding me?

Rubio's is almost as insane a collection of people, who when locked in a room together, couldn't get along!

This is hysterically funny!

"get inside the Beltway and vote 180 degrees opposite what they told the folks back home they were going to do."

Trump: "Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump backed down Friday from claims that he would order the U.S. military to waterboard militants and carry out other acts that violate international law, as the top general in the U.S. military was asked to weigh in on Trump’s previous remarks."

"Trump reversed himself on a key part of his immigration platform, calling for an increase in visas for highly skilled foreigners. “I’m changing,” he said."

He's never been in DC, but he's been Democrat "mainly" in his own words and is already flip flopping. Or, is it some rational thought and advice being taken?

He's no different.

My opinion-- Romney is being used as a mouthpiece. No idea what the goal is. Don't really care.

March 4 @6:35 is a third-rate commenter. I admire @6:35 for trying but it's really kinda sad. That's what everyone is saying. Everyone. I will be adding my own comment very, very, very soon and it will be the best comment you have ever seen. I am a great commenter. People ask me all the time to stop commenting so great because it's just too great. They say "Enough with the great comments!" "They are too great!" but I can't help it. I'm really very very smart and write great comments. But @6:35? A disaster.

And you know what? They are beautiful comments too. Totally first class. They are comments to be proud of.

Endorsements from Barbour lovers Brownback, Roberts and Dole frames Rubio going down in Kansas flames. Nobody is listening to you establishment Repugnantcans. Nobody.

This whole thing is an insult to my perceived intelligence:
1) all politicians are 'corrupt'; there aren't any purity ponies in politics.
2) Bernie supporters don't understand economics. Raise the fed. Minimum wage and all you'll do is raise the cost of living and kill small/independent businesses. A good portion of said min. Wage will go to gov't and be taxed at least at 22% (probably more- a lot more). If you want to give more of your money to Government, then you are a dumbass and haven't been around long enough nor do you live in the real world.
3) Hillary's husband signed NAFTA & 'tough on crime' bills -completely destroyed America. We are seeing the fruits of those actions now.
4) Rubio is a prima Donna little bitch. Hell no. Completely groomed by the establishment.
5) Ted Cruz is a master manipulator and in my purview a Canadian communist insurgent bitch slapped around by Goldman Sachs.
6) Trump is having a midlife crisis.

Friends of Anarchy?

I hope you'll come up with examples of how well anarchy has worked!

Please don't include our Revolution. The reason we didn't have anarchy is because those guys were smart enough to have an idea what government should look like!

Are you meeting to elect a future dictator? Or are you just planning to destroy everything around you?

Interesting how Rubio's MS campaign is made up of largely politicians and Trump's are mostly business professionals.

Gooney Bird is such a 'great commenter' that he can't even get the time stamp correct. It's close enough for a lofter though. All that matters is he tried. Still gets a trophy for participating.

When will people decide our way of electing leaders is out of date and a gathering place for crooks?
It would be very easy to make it a simple process.
Get rid of all parties. Pick a day for elections in all states.
The person with the most votes is president and the person in second place is vice president.
See how simple it could be?

Anonymous said...

Kingfish, I want to give you quick props for your insightful description of Kirk Sims. Truly made me laugh out loud. He tried hard to win that MVP title.

Kingfish said...

On, there is a funny story I could tell about him getting chewed out two days after the primary but I can't. Let's just say he got shoved into the back room and kept there.

Anonymous said...

Bottom line for any Mississippi Republican who wants to stop Trump you've got to take the opportunity right here, right now and send a message nationally on Tuesday by voting for Ted Cruz. After yesterday it is clear that a vote for Rubio or Kasich is a wasted vote if you want to stop Trump.

RE: @12:51 PM

New York Times

What in the world ever happened to Marco Rubio?

To the Rubio who was supposed to be the party’s savior and hope, I mean. The Rubio who made donors’ hearts beat faster. The Rubio they kept foisting on Republican voters, except that the donors didn’t see it as foisting. They saw it as benevolent instruction in which candidate was really best for all involved, which candidate could deny Democrats a third consecutive term in the White House.

Rubio is essentially the Christmas fruitcake of the 2016 cycle: presented as a gift, received as something neither appetizing nor especially nutritive.

Anonymous said...


“Super Saturday” ended up being a Saturday night massacre for Marco Rubio. The establishment’s landslide choice to win the GOP nomination no longer seems capable of even finishing in second place. If the Florida senator wants to salvage his political career, it is time that his quixotic quest for the White House comes to an end.

Anonymous said...

Nate Silver:’s how I’d score the evening relative to expectations on the GOP side. I mean that in a more precise way than when the term “expectations” is usually invoked. Specifically, I mean that if you’d drawn up a list of plausible outcomes this morning and ranked them from best (10) to worst (0) for each candidate, how would candidates fare by that measure?

Ted Cruz — 9 out of 10. Huge win in Kansas, unexpected win in Maine, and unexpectedly close to Trump in Louisiana, with results suggesting he might even have won if not for early votes. Cruz’s loss in Kentucky was also narrow — he came much closer to Trump, for example, than he did in Tennessee on Super Tuesday. Not quite a “best case scenario” but not more than one step removed from it.

WAPO: Ted Cruz’s huge surge in Election Day voting in Louisiana

This suggests that the shift probably wasn't a function of Ted Cruz's (clearly strong) get-out-the-vote effort. Field efforts like that result in relatively limited swings, and it's hard to see how they could have run a hugely successful turnout effort throughout the state uniformly.

Instead, this looks like the state of Louisiana bailed on Marco Rubio in favor of Ted Cruz. Which could explain why Cruz is targeting Florida all of a sudden. On Saturday night, Donald Trump called for Rubio to drop out of the race. If he can repeat what he did in Louisiana in Florida in just over a week, Cruz will take Rubio out himself.

Louisiana early votes:

Louisiana election day votes:

Cruz 40.9%

Rubio 9.4%
Kasich 6.8%

Anonymous said...

All this hand ringing for nothing Cruz is the guy. Has always been the guy for 2016. The career politicians hate him because he wants to shrink the size of the federal government and get it out of our every thought and deed.
In a one on one debate he would destroy Trump or Hillary. I hope he gets the chance to do both. The next conservative president must be able to speak directly to the voters like Reagan did. This is how you get congress to agree with conservative principals - you appeal directly to the voters. It should be easy to explain why everything Oboma has done is bad for the country and bad for it's people. Seems like everyone knows this but cannot verbalize it. Cruz can. He will. And he won't back down.

A vote for Kasich is a wasted vote.

Youngstown, Ohio: We are seeing something this election cycle I’ve never seen before to this degree,” said board Chairman Mark Munroe, who’s also the county Republican chairman. “Every day I take phone calls or get voice messages from people saying they’ve been Democrats all their life and they’ve had it. They want to vote for Donald Trump. I’m surprised at the volume of inquiries we’re getting. It’s remarkable.”

Get serious Mississippi. Make a statement. Only Ted Cruz can stop Trump.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag.
