Romey in Mississippi

Article on it here. To say the least he was a hit.

They had seen the handsome governor from up North on
Fox News and had read about his leadership of the Big Dig in local newspapers.

So when the ladies dressed in red welcomed Governor Mitt Romney to this Gulf Coast town yesterday, they had no interest in the handshakes Romney was offering. They went in for hugs.

Trent Lott gave Romney high praise:

Lott promptly returned the favor, telling reporters at a press conference that Romney is ``definitely in the top tier" of Republican presidential candidates, alongside Senator John McCain of Arizona and former New York mayor Rudolph W. Giuliani. Joshing about his looks, Lott called the governor a ``real pretty one," but was serious about his prospects.

``He's got an excellent chance. Everything I have seen about him has always been impressive," Lott said. ``We may actually get to vote for somebody from Massachusetts before it's over."
