Hood releases “Too Late Tate” ad
Tate Reeves had 8 years but waited until an election year to release a “plan” to improve public education. The reality is, Reeves repeatedly killed teacher pay raises, fought against expanding pre-K, and cut millions for community colleges and job training. #MSgov #TooLateTate pic.twitter.com/mDTnSp5vXa

WJTV – Hood: Reeves campaign commercial for public education filmed at a private school is ‘fraudulent’
With the state’s general election less than three weeks away, Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann is campaigning to be the next lieutenant governor by advocating for the need to revamp the structure of state agencies and repair the state’s deteriorating infrastructure.
Hosemann, the Republican nominee for lieutenant governor, met with the Daily Journal’s editorial board on Monday, where he said he wants to lead reforms to the way the state government treats its gasoline tax by handing a local gasoline tax option over to county government.
In Monday’s interview, Hosemann said he is still developing some of the details of the plan, but said if a local board of supervisors wanted to enact the local gasoline tax within their county, it could vote to put the tax on a ballot initiative for the county residents to vote on. If the voters approve the initiative, the county could receive 100% of those taxes.

Governor Phil Bryant earned kudos for his faithful leadership to spark economic development and enhance education during two terms as the state’s chief executive.
Known for strong integrity and commitment to government accountability, Bryant continues to attract major honors for hard work during his stellar political career. Mississippi College officials will present the MC graduate with the Christian university’s Order of the Golden Arrow Award.
Bryant will receive his latest honor during the National Alumni Association’s awards dinner in Anderson Hall on October 25. Beginning at 6:15 p.m. that Friday, the program in Anderson Hall is one of the major events of MC’s 2019 Homecoming.
The interstate would follow U.S. Highway 84 from Natchez to Brookhaven, and then connect to the current Interstate 59.
But there are some roadblocks. The Mississippi Department of Transportation said hundreds of people may lose their land or homes.
