Governor still supports statewide vote on flag

JACKSON – Gov. Phil Bryant again Tuesday assailed the protests, marches and deadly violence by white supremacists this past weekend in Charlottesville, Virginia, but said those events do not change his mind about the Mississippi state flag.

The governor, speaking after a press event at the Institutions of Higher Learning complex in Jackson, said he still wants to see the controversial Mississippi flag placed on the election ballot to be rejected or reaffirmed by Mississippians.

“I have encouraged (legislators) to do so in past years, and I will continue to do so,” the governor said.
