It doesn't really come as a surprise to anyone --but Monday Governor Haley Barbour made it official: he's running for re-election.
Governor Barbour has been saying since last year that he plans to seek a second term in 2007. He launched his campaign web site last week and has been airing television ads for several days.
He says he is prepared to spend as much as 13 million dollars on his campaign. Barbour says point-blank that he won't run for senate or president in the next election... But did not give a direct answer Monday when questioned about whether he would run for vice-president.
