U.S. Rep. Chip Pickering says he'll support the state's current leadership, but he said he's ready to back fellow Mississippi Republican Haley Barbour for governor come campaign time next year.
Pickering said he believes the former GOP national committee chairman from Yazoo City has tremendous leadership abilities.
Barbour said on Tuesday that it's not time to announce anything yet, although he said he is serious about running for governor.
Mississippi GOP leaders have made no secret they'll be zeroing in on Democratic Gov. Ronnie Musgrove in the fall 2003 elections. But Barbour is taking a cautious approach.
