Barbour, 'weighing' his options

A year ago, Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour (R-MS) said, "If you see I lose 40 pounds, you'll know I'm either running or got cancer.”

A Barbour adviser today told Politics Daily's Jill Lawrence that he’s about halfway there.

"He hasn't lost 40 pounds," the adviser said. "He might be halfway there. So read into that what you will."
