Barbour not running for president
By JASON PATTERSON
Gov. Haley Barbour surprised many of his hometown supporters Monday when he announced he will not run for president in 2012.
“This has been a difficult, personal decision, and I am very grateful to my family for their total support of my going forward, had that been what I decided,” Barbour said in a statement to The Herald Monday.
Many expected Barbour to announce his candidacy after making the rounds in key states around the nation, but the Yazoo City native said he doesn’t have the “absolute fire in the belly” required to make a serious run for the White House. -------for the rest of the story see The Yazoo Herald printed edition or subscribe to the Digital Edition.----------
