Governor Lott? The Senate minority leader says he has NO plans to seek the state's top office. The Mississippi Republican is dismissing speculation that has made the rounds in Jackson and Washington that he might run for governor in 2003.
Lott say even though he's no longer the Senate majority leader, he can still do a lot for the state. Syndicated columnist Bill Minor posed the theory of a Lott run for governor in a column last week that was featured on The Drudge Report, an Internet site that tracks news and gossip.
