Potential 2016 Republican Presidential Candidate

Governor of Mississippi

Dewey Phillip Bryant
Born: December 9th, 1954  (age 60)

The father of two began his law enforcement career with the Hinds County Sheriff’s Department in 1976, and by the time he left five years later, he had been promoted to Chief of Detectives.

Fifteen years later, while working as a senior special agent with arson investigation firm INS Investigations Bureau Inc., the Rankin County Representative was selected by Mississippi’s late Governor, Kirk Fordice, to fill in the State Auditor’s seat left vacant following the resignation of its scandal-plague predecessor.

At the announcement, Gov. Fordice said that the State Auditor must be a person of “absolutely, unimpeachably good character and integrity and Bryant fits that description very well." Not only did Bryant prove him right, his sterling performance as Auditor earned him the title of Mississippian of the Year in 2002.

In 2011, Gov. Phil Bryant won the Mississippi governor's race after an easy victory against Democrat Johnny Dupree, succeeding the term-limited Haley Barbour to become the 64th Governor of the Magnolia State.
