Politics takes center stage at Fair

PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (AP) - Mississippi politicians offered no surprises Wednesday during speeches at the Neshoba County Fair.

State Auditor Stacey Pickering said his office will try to find ways for government to cut spending. The Republican did not announce what office he'll seek in 2011.

Attorney General Jim Hood, a Democrat, said months ago that he's seeking a third term next year. At the fair Wednesday, Hood said he's working with attorneys general from other coastal states to ensure people are properly compensated for losses from the BP oil spill.

Republican Gov. Haley Barbour is among the politicians speaking Thursday in Neshoba County.
