Ross doesn’t run away from serious side

State Sen. Charlie Ross, R-Brandon, must have a good sense of humor.

If the former Air Force aviator did not, he surely would be mad at all the people who joke about his lack of a sense of humor.

For instance, on the Senate floor this past session, Sen. Terry Burton, R-Newton, spoke of Ross’s many attributes, such as his intellect and his persuasiveness, then added, “He also has a great sense of humor. We have never seen it, but it must be there somewhere.”

When Ross hears those comments, he gives a slight smile and admits, almost as an afterthought, “My wife says I should smile more.”

Ross, 51 and a shareholder in one of the bigger law firms in Jackson, is hoping that the electorate will not be put off by his serious nature in the Aug. 7 Republican primary, where he is vying against state Auditor Phil Bryant for the open seat of lieutenant governor.
