WJTV – President Trump and Vice President Pence to campaign for Tate Reeves in Mississippi
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.
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.
Hood hits Reeves on travel in new ad
Tate Reeves has cost taxpayers more than $400,000 having fun on YOUR dime instead of using that money to fix our roads and bridges, improve our schools, and expand access to healthcare.

Cole hits Gipson over food sales tax in Ag Commish race
My lawyer opponent says its “unconstitutional” to exempt MS grown food from sales tax. Funny thing: MS food is already legally exempt from sales tax when sold retail by the grower. Happens every Sat at MS Farmers Mkt, under his authority. #LawyersLoveRules

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.
Wicker calls out House Impeachment Inquiry
House Democrats’ “impeachment inquiry” has been flawed from the beginning. The norm of a formal investigation starting with a debate and a vote by the full House has been dropped. It has been replaced by ad hoc and undemocratic methods. #WickerReport https://t.co/KglLNOnsvj
