WLBT – Hewes says Reeves won’t debate

Hewes says Reeves is hiding behind the ads and not giving voters a chance to see and hear what’s really at stake.

“My opponent won’t debate me, no debate Tate, he’s not showing up,” Hewes said. “If my opponent would debate me, we could get a lot of these questions answered, but we’ve seen nothing but costly responses from them, but no answers yet, they’re talking about anything but issues.”

The Reeves Campaign says that’s simply not true and released a statement in response.

“Tate Reeves has been running his campaign on issues since he announced in February. Hewes has been worried about what Reeves is doing, where he is and lying about his reputation as treasurer,” said Justin Brasell, Reeves’ campaign manager.
