Gov. Bryant named one of "fittest" state leaders

MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Governor Phil Bryant is topping a list for physical fitness.
In a recently published article, named Bryant one of the "Top 10 Fittest Governors" in the United States.

The article says governors who made the list demonstrate what a governor can do to improve health in the state. Bryant's annual 5k Run for Health was one reason he was selected.

"Bryant believes each of us has to take responsibility for our personal health, and that a family run is a great way for people to get active and improve their wellbeing," the article stated.

Others who made the list include Wisconsin's Governor Scott Walker and Florida's Rick Scott.
