Bryant Will Be Next Governor of Mississippi

Phil Bryant (R) won the Mississippi governor's race, headily defeating Johnny DuPree (D) to succeed Gov. Haley Barbour, who couldn't seek a third term as governor, the Clarion Ledger reports.

"The 56-year-old Bryant makes history as the first Republican to succeed another Republican as Mississippi governor in modern times. Barbour unseated a one-term Democrat in 2003."
