Barbour's Wife: Presidential Race 'Horrifies Me'

Friday, 01 Apr 2011 11:54 AM

JACKSON, Miss. — Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour's wife says the thought of his running for president "horrifies me" because it would be "a huge sacrifice for a family to make."

Marsha Barbour made the comments to Mississippi's WLOX-TV on Thursday. The 63-year-old governor has said he may announce this month whether he'll enter the GOP presidential primary.

Barbour spokesman Jim Dyke tells The Associated Press on Friday that Marsha Barbour was stating the obvious — campaigning and being president can be "daunting."

Marsha Barbour's comments come two weeks after one of the Barbours' adult sons, Sterling, said he's a private person and he hopes his father doesn't run for president.

Barbour's wife and son both say they'll support him if he enters the race.
