WJTV – President Trump and Vice President Pence to campaign for Tate Reeves in Mississippi

WCBI – Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves talks to supporters in Columbus

Today, he stopped in Columbus to talk to supporters.

Many polls have the race for the Governor’s mansion between Reeves and Attorney General Jim Hood within five points.

Now, the candidates are trying to get people to the polls.

“They are not going to count how much money you have, they are not going to count how many friends you have. They are just going to count how many people vote for you on next Tuesday night. While we may be in a good spot in this election, it’s going to be a close race. Turnout matters. Getting people to the polls really matters for us to be successful, we need a big turnout next Tuesday,” said Lt. Gov. Reeves.

DAILY JOURNAL – OUR OPINION: Candidate’s off-the-record interviews raise concerns

We received no response and our editorial board was not able to interview gubernatorial candidate Reeves for our readers.

This is disappointing to us and, in turn, our readers. But of concern is the response “we are doing off the record editorial board meetings.”

When an elected official running for the state’s top office wants to speak to newspaper editorial boards off the record, one has to wonder how transparent he will be if elected, and how well the candidate can explain his vision for Mississippi with questions that go much deeper than looking for a sound bite response.

CLARION LEDGER – Here’s how legislators, not voters, might pick Mississippi’s next governor

The Mississippi House, not voters, might decide the outcome of the gubernatorial election under a Jim Crow-era election law.

Mississippi’s gubernatorial election is Tuesday, but it’s possible the outcome won’t be decided until January.

The reason? A Jim Crow-era law presently being challenged in federal court. It requires a two-step process for a statewide candidate to be elected, not unlike the federal Electoral College system. The law includes a provision where the Mississippi House — which convenes in early January — could ultimately choose the winner.

No other state has this system for selecting a governor.

The law has rarely been tested in Mississippi. But political experts say this competitive race for governor, pitting Republican Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves and Democratic Attorney General Jim Hood, has the ingredients for its unusual provisions to take effect.
