Popular Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour is nationally known as a man who can get things done by working with Democrats and Republicans. So when he makes his political picks for candidates across the state, smart people listen.
Recently, Barbour announced his endorsement of Cindy Bryan, Republican candidate for Mississippi House of Representatives, District 91.
“As a former mayor, Cindy Bryan understands the importance of conservative, prudent budgeting of taxpayers’ dollars,” Barbour said in his statement. “We need strong Republicans in the Mississippi House to keep moving our state forward. Cindy is the right choice to represent House District 91.”
Bryan is waging a strong campaign that is gathering momentum from trade advocacy groups in a district has been taken for granted as a Democrat stronghold. She was recently chosen as the “Best Candidate for Job Creation” by Mississippi’s Business and Industry Political Education Committee (BIPEC).
“Governor Barbour has done a great job representing Mississippi with his economic vision,” Bryan said. “I’m very pleased that he is supporting me in my effort to help realize a conservative vision in the House of Representatives that will bring jobs back to the voters.”
Business leaders and workers across Mississippi have come out in support of Bryan’s campaign. She has already received key endorsements from industry advocates, the Mississippi Manufacturers Association Political Action Committee (MMA PAC) and the Associated Contractors of Mississippi.
Bryan will face Democrat Bob Evans in the District 91 House of Representatives race in the general election on Tuesday, November 8. Representatives in Mississippi serve four-year terms.

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) – Mississippians who want to vote in the Nov. 8 general election must be registered by this weekend.
Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann says the law requires circuit clerks’ offices in all 82 counties to be open 8 a.m. until noon this Saturday, the registration deadline.
Hosemann says mail-in voter registration forms must be postmarked by this Saturday.
The November ballot has all eight statewide positions, including governor. It also has regional races for transportation and public service commissioners, district races for all 174 legislators and county races for supervisors, circuit clerks and other jobs.
Voters also will decide whether to adopt three proposed constitutional amendments. One would restrict eminent domain, one would require voters to show identification at the polls and one would define life as beginning at conception.

Mississippi District 91 House of Representatives candidate Cindy Bryan has been waging a strong campaign against Democrat Bob Evans—but few observers expected the results of a recent independent poll. Conducted September 20 through 26, the poll of likely voters found that Bryan, a fiscally conservative Republican focused on job growth, leads the incumbent Evans by 9.4 percentage points, more than twice the margin of error.
Thirty-five percent of the voters polled in a representative sample of the district favored Bryan, while 25.6% favored Bob Evans. Since the lead is greater than twice the poll’s 4 point margin of error, Bryan’s lead clearly puts this race in the Republican’s winnable column—considered impossible just months ago.
Another surprise finding in the poll is that Democrats in District 91 no longer hold a majority. Only 41.5% reported that they were Democrats, 31.5% called themselves independents or unaffiliated, and 27% reported that they were Republicans. Since the independent/unaffiliated voters preferred Bryan to Evans by a 2-to-1 margin, Bryan is currently the candidate to beat. Still, most (39.4%) voters are undecided at this point in the election cycle.
“Mississippi voters are hungry for leadership—not just talk, divisive politics, and promises,” said Bryan. “My record as mayor shows that I can deliver results and bring people together to meet any challenge.”
Bryan’s campaign is gaining momentum rapidly, particularly since a leading industry advocate, the Mississippi Manufacturers Association Political Action Committee (MMA PAC) gave her a resounding endorsement. That endorsement followed another critical endorsement from the Associated Contractors of Mississippi, a key advocacy group seeking to create better job conditions for the construction industry.
Bryan will face Evans in the District 91 House of Representatives race in the general election on Tuesday, November 8. Representatives in Mississippi serve four-year terms.
