Reeves basically confirmed what everyone knew, but he is- I believe- the last card to fall in the 2011 deck. The two-term treasurer will be pitted against state Sen. Billy Hewes in the race to replace Phil Bryant. As of right now, the Republican primary is the general election with no Democratic candidate qualified.
In the race to replace Reeves, state Sen. Lee Yancey is already in. Lucien Smith and Lynn Fitch were waiting on Reeves to make his formal announcement before officially revealing their plans; so I would expect to hear something from them in the very near future.
** Keep up with all the statewide candidates at the 2011 Big Board.
Majority in Miss.
