State treasurer wants a promotion from the voters

Jobs are a top priority for Reeves, to reverse what he called the brain drain. Students educated in the state don’t stay in the state.

“Young people weren’t leaving our state because they wanted to, they were leaving because they thought they had to.”

Reeves put himself squarely on the conservative side of the aisle.

“There are still people in Jackson that believe government is the answer to every problem,” Reeves said. “There are still people in Jackson that believe government can spend Mississippians’ money better than Mississippians can.”

And he promised to fight to overturn abortion.

“If you believe Mississippi can be a state with no abortion clinics, and that’s truly the safest place in America for the unborn, then I’m your candidate.”

Reeves is traveling the state this week, making announcements in several locations.
