Barbour portrait to be unveiled


The Associated Press



JACKSON -- Officials this week will unveil a portrait of former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour. 


The painting will hang on the first floor of the state Capitol in downtown Jackson, along with portraits of almost every other former governor. 


An unveiling ceremony is set for 11:30 a.m. Wednesday. 


Barbour, a Republican from Yazoo City, served as governor from January 2004 through January 2012. After leaving office, he returned to work as a lawyer and Washington lobbyist. 


The only former governor who has chosen not to have his portrait painted is Democrat Bill Allain of Natchez, who served from January 1984 to January 1988.
