Several sources report that former lobbyist Gov. Haley Barbour may be mulling a 2012 run for the White House.
Having worked in Republican politics as an operative, lobbyist and elected official for more than 40 years, Barbour has an unmatched Rolodex that includes party leaders, donors and activists in every state. Upon his launch, he could put together a finance and campaign team that few of his potential rivals could match, save perhaps former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
