Governor of the state of Mississippi from 2000 until 2004.
He defeated Republican opponent Mike Parker for the governor's office in the 1999 election. However, since neither candidate received a majority of the popular vote, the Mississippi House of Representatives selected the winner.
Musgrove advocated that Mississippi's flag, which contained the confederate battle flag within its field, be changed. A new flag design was voted on by referendum in 2001. By a vote of 65%, voters elected to keep the old flag.
Musgrove was born in Tocowa, Mississippi and graduated from Northwest Community College, the University of Mississippi, and the University of Mississippi Law School.
