Stephen Colbert previewed the upcoming Mississippi and Alabama contests in the GOP presidential race Monday evening with a faux Southern accent imitating Mitt Romney’s new country slang.

The Comedy Central personality was particularly enthused with comedian Jeff Foxworthy endorsing the former Massachusetts governor and joining him for a campaign stop.

“Now if you’re a multimillionaire entertainer supporting the candidacy of a wealthy financier from Massachusetts, you might no longer be a redneck,” Colbert said.
