RGA Statement Congratulating Lt. Governor Tate Reeves On Victory In Mississippi Republican Runoff

WASHINGTON, D.C. –  The Republican Governors Association (RGA) released the following statements on the results of the Mississippi Republican runoff election:

“Lt. Governor Reeves is a principled, policy-driven conservative leader who is deeply in tune with Mississippi voters and values,” said RGA Chairman Governor Pete Ricketts. “Mississippians know that Tate Reeves will keep his promises and keep moving the state forward. The RGA congratulates Tate on his win tonight, and we’re with him all the way to victory in November.”

“Jim Hood’s longtime record of standing with national Democrats like Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton and his embrace of the radical resistance seeking to stop President Trump’s agenda is proof that he’s been standing with them and not the hardworking people of Mississippi,” said RGA Executive Director Dave Rexrode. “In November, the voters will resoundingly reject his liberal agenda and out-of-touch policies.”
