BILOXI, MS – Congressman Steven Palazzo, (MS-04), released the following statement after receiving endorsements from Republican statewide elected officials and each Republican member of the Congressional Delegation for the Republican primary election in the Fourth Congressional District of Mississippi:

“I am proud to receive the resounding support from our elected leadership at the State and Congressional level. It has been a privilege serving alongside each of them as we continue to work together to promote conservative values and create a better, more prosperous Mississippi.”


Governor Phil Bryant:

“Congressman Steven Palazzo has worked hard for Mississippians in the Fourth District, and I hope he will continue to do so. I intend to support him in this campaign.”

Senator Thad Cochran:

“I’ve enjoyed working with Congressman Palazzo to fix the flood insurance program, help Camp Shelby and the National Guard, and tackle other issues important to the Fourth Congressional District. Steven has been a conservative voice for South Mississippi, and the seniority he has accumulated on key Congressional committees serves his district well.”

Senator Roger Wicker:

“Steven has been a solid member of the House Republican Majority for the last four years. The contributions he’s made to national defense and Mississippi’s economic development make him deserving of reelection.”

Congressman Gregg Harper (MS-03):

“Steven is a proven conservative leader who has consistently fought for a strong national defense and a government that is more accountable to the people. Because of his leadership, South Mississippians will experience the full benefits of the coastal restoration and economic development projects resulting from the RESTORE Act. I urge you to join Sidney and me in supporting my friend, Steven Palazzo, for reelection to the U.S. House of Representatives.”

Congressman Alan Nunnelee (MS-01):

“I have served in Congress with Steven Palazzo since 2010. Steven was sent to Washington because the values of South Mississippians were not reflected in the policies of President Obama and Speaker Pelosi. Over the past four years, Steven has worked hard to make sure the values of South Mississippians are well represented both at home and in Washington.”

Lieutenant Governor Tate Reeves:

“Steven is the true conservative choice for South Mississippi. He’s fought for his constituents by delivering flood insurance relief and advocating for South Mississippi’s defense and aerospace installations and our many military veterans.”

Mississippi Speaker of the House Philip Gunn:

“I’ve known and supported Steven for many years now. I had the pleasure of working with him in the Mississippi House of Representatives. He has always been a strong conservative voice in Mississippi, and I look forward to his continued service as one of Mississippi’s Congressmen.”

State Auditor Stacey Pickering:

“Congressman Palazzo has been a champion for South Mississippi. Steven is an important conservative voice in Washington. As a constituent, I look forward to supporting Steven and working to re-elect him.”

State Treasurer Lynn Fitch:

“As a steward of Mississippi tax dollars, I deeply appreciate Steven’s work to control our nation’s out-of-control spending and reduce our crushing debt under the Obama Administration. From his days in the State Legislature to representing the Fourth Congressional District, Steven has been a consistent conservative voice. He has also been a leader in the effort to provide coast residents some relief from rising flood insurance rates. Mississippi needs Steven Palazzo in Washington.”

Commissioner of Agriculture Cindy Hyde-Smith:

“I have always known Congressman Palazzo to be a very hard worker, not only dedicated to his constituents but also to the State of Mississippi. Please join me in supporting Steven Palazzo.”

Commissioner of Insurance Mike Chaney:

“Steven Palazzo has been a stalwart supporter of our efforts to keep homeowner insurance rates reasonable for all of Mississippi, especially the coastal communities. I applaud his efforts to lead our delegation to bring common sense to the National Flood Insurance Program and help prevent draconian rate increases in flood insurance. I am deeply grateful for his continued support of Veterans. As Mississippi’s Insurance Commissioner, I enthusiastically endorse Congressman Steven Palazzo for his 2014 reelection to Congress.”
