Madison County Journal columnist Brian Perry has been named one of the top political influencers in Mississippi by Campaigns & Elections Magazine (C&E).  C&E conducted more than 100 interviews with consultants, journalists and political insiders across the country to compile its list of The Influencers 500. 

 Perry, a partner with Capstone Public Affairs, LLC and a columnist for the Journal for more than ten years and whose column also appears in other papers in the state, was picked for his communications expertise in the Republican section.

"I'm honored to be included with these other individuals, many of whom I count as friends, said Perry.  "Although I can think of a lot of people who should be named instead of me, I am honored to be on the list and appreciate Campaigns & Elections for the recognition."
