Vice President’s Visit Illustrates Washington’s control over Barbour

(Jackson) In response to the fundraiser today for Republican gubernatorial candidate Haley Barbour, headlined by Vice-President Dick Cheney on the Coast, Mitch Tyner offered the following:

“I respect the Vice President immensely. However, he never contacted this fellow Republican to determine whose views are most consistent with his own. I am certain that my pro-life position, position on the United Nations, opposition to homosexual marriages, immigration, parenting and other social issues are much more in line with the Party platform than my opponents lobbying history.” Says Tyner.

“Washington wants to run Mississippi and they know they can do it through my opponent. Cheney’s visit and his complete indifference to my views are evidence of the anticipated payback and outside influence which will forever follow Barbour wherever he goes,” according to Tyner. “If he spends $10,000,000.00 on this race, as he’s promised, Washington and the special interests will want a $100 BILLION return on their investment. Mississippi cannot afford that and Mississippi is not for sale,” said Tyner.

In recent weeks Barbour’s tainted lobbying history, as well as his failure to stand up for family values have been coming out. “He [Barbour] was paid over $5,000,000.00 by the tobacco industry, then Barbour used his “connections” to return the favor with a $50 BILLION gift to the tobacco industry in the balance budget act of 1997. Now that’s a return on investment,” concludes Tyner.
