The Jackson County Sheriff focuses on his law enforcement experience in new commercial.

Republican candidate for the 4th Congressional District Mike Ezell, Sheriff of Jackson County, released his second TV ad of the 2022 campaign cycle on Wednesday.

In the ad, Ezell says, “When politicians in Washington talk about defunding the police and open borders, they’ve lost touch with reality. I’m Sheriff Mike Ezell. As a law enforcement officer for over 40 years, I’ve dedicated my life to fighting crime, protecting our Constitutional rights and making communities safer. Now more than ever, we need someone in Congress with firsthand law enforcement experience. I’m Mike Ezell and I approved this message because I’ll show up, speak up and stand up for our conservative values—every day.”

The Ezell campaign released their first TV ad in April. His wife highlighted Ezell’s experience as a law enforcement officer and noted that he is also a beekeeper.

Ezell is one of six Republican candidates challenging incumbent Congressman Steven Palazzo for the South Mississippi Congressional seat. His first quarter campaign finance report shows that Ezell raised $92,500 that period and has $204,000 cash on hand.

Republican voters will decide in the June 7th Primary who will move on to face the Democratic nominee and a Libertarian in November’s General Election.
