Reeves eyes business climate

State Treasurer Tate Reeves made an early stop on his campaign trail for lieutenant governor Tuesday at the University of Southern Mississippi.

Reeves officially launched his campaign for the Republican nomination Monday at the Florence Middle School gymnasium, where he played basketball in his youth.

In a speech Tuesday at Southern Miss’ Thad Cochran Center, Reeves said his platform points include creating a more favorable environment for business and removing abortion clinics from the state.
