Tate Reeves draws strong comparisons between Johnson and President Barack Obama.
“He has told the voters that he wants to, in essence, run Mississippi government like President Obama is running the federal government. If that’s what Mississippians think that they want – if they want President Obama to have four more years in Mississippi – then they ought to look at my opponent,” says Reeves.
Reeves also questions the motives of Johnson’s change of party.
“It’s unusual. You don’t see a lot of party-switchers these days in Mississippi. It’s a long way philosophically from being a Republican February the 15th to being very pro-Obamacare on March the 15th,” says Reeves
