Haley Barbour will become the second Republican governor of Mississippi ever elected in that state. He won with 53% of the vote; the Democrat incumbent got 45% (with 95% of precincts reporting). Ernie Fletcher wins in Kentucky (55-45%) becoming the first Republican governor in 32 years. He won in the Northern counties by especially large margins. CNN focused on the Democratic "Rock the Vote" debate this morning, eventually getting around to this bit of political news. We should keep our eye on the Lousiana governor’s runoff on November 15th where
Bobby Jindal, I predict, is likely to win. Oh, yes, and
Arnold will take the oath of office as California’ governor on November 17th. Al Sharpton will host Saturday Night live on December 6th. Be sure to watch it.
