Today, former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Trent Lott announced that he is endorsing Mississippi State Senator Billy Hewes in his campaign for Lt. Governor

“When you look at Billy Hewes’ experience and record of accomplishments, it’s clear to me that he is the most prepared and qualified candidate to be our next Lt. Governor,” said former U.S. Senator Trent Lott.
“I know how important it is to have people with proven experience in leadership positions,” Lott said. “Clearly, Billy Hewes has the most relevant, firsthand experience having served in the Mississippi Senate as President Pro Tempore, and that’s why I’m pleased to support his campaign for Lt. Governor.

Finally, let me say that it is imperative that we elect a Lt. Governor who will represent all of MS, and not just a region of the State. Billy Hewes is the candidate for Lt. Governor who will work for all Mississippians.”
