INDIANOLA — The streets of Indianola were still glistening from a rare rainfall in this bone-dry summer, and 11 neatly dressed Republicans stood in a side room of the Sunflower County Library waiting for lieutenant governor candidate Tate Reeves.
He had a full schedule and arrived about 25 minutes late for a one-hour meet-and-greet event. Reeves offered quick apologies.
“Far too many people in Washington, D.C., are focused on right and left and not enough people are focused on right and wrong,” Reeves said. “And that’s why I’m running for lieutenant governor.”
