Tate Reeves, who is waiting on the formality that is the November 8 election before he can be referred to as lieutenant governor-elect, was in the Delta last week joining Sen. Buck Clarke on several campaign stops. Clarke is facing changing demographics that makes this one of the more competitive Senate seats this fall. Obviously Reeves would love to have him back in January when he takes over as head of the Senate.
In a press release, Reeves said this about Clarke: “Buck Clarke is one of the most well-respected members of the Senate. Buck voted to balance our budget without raising taxes, and he’s supported job training programs critical to the Delta. I’m supporting Buck Clarke, and I hope Delta voters will give him a third term in the Senate.”
And Clarke said this about Reeves: “I appreciate Tate spending the day campaigning with me, and I’m very grateful for his support. Tate shares my belief that a balanced budget, low taxes and fewer regulations on small businesses will help create more private sector jobs.”
