Sound Off: Presidential primary election

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Mississippi doesn't usually have much influence on presidential elections.

We don't have the population or the electoral votes that generally attract presidential candidates.

That has all changed with the Republican presidential primaries this week.

Mississippi and Alabama may well decide who stays in the race and who goes home.

We have been invaded by Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum and Newt Gingrich.

We are kind of like the prettiest girl at the dance and every guy wants to impress her.

It's nice to have the attention.

Personal appearances, television ads and national news coverage on the race have put Mississippi in the spotlight, but like Cinderella the clock is about to strike midnight and the dance will be over, but hey, at least we weren't the ugly stepsisters.
