Asa Hutchinson's campaign today announced that Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour and Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney will join Hutchinson at a Saturday night rally in Fort Smith.

Romney, who also chairs the Republican Governors Association, didn't sound very optimistic about Hutchinson's chances in a CNN interview two weeks ago.

BLITZER: So there will be a majority of Democratic governors?

ROMNEY: Oh, sure.

BLITZER: As opposed to a majority of Republican governors?

ROMNEY: Oh, sure. I think -- I don't think there is anyone who has looked at the poll numbers that doesn't think that will happen.

You have got states like New York and Arkansas that are blue states that have Republican governors who are retiring.

Full details about Hutchinson's event after the jump.

  • Cats and dogs

    I've always been leery of people who dislike animals. To my wife and me, a house without dog hair in the corners and a cat perched on the windowsill is as barren as a highway rest stop. We're down to three dogs and two cats, the smallest menagerie we've had for years.
