By: Sarah Ulmer - January 3, 2019

Lt. Governor Tate Reeves was joined by his wife Elee and three daughters at the Republican Party headquarters in Jackson to announce his 2018 gubernatorial race on Thursday.

“I believe in the great potential of our state and of our people,” said Reeves. “We are growing a strong economy that will provide good-paying careers for the next generation. Mississippi needs conservative leaders who will stand with President Trump and work to strengthen our state.”

Reeves plans to kickoff a border-to-border retail campaign across the state after the legislative session ends in the spring.

“I am going to finish the job voters elected me to do as Lieutenant Governor – guarding the taxpayers’ dollars and implementing strong conservative policy,” Reeves said.

While serving as Lt. Governor, Reeves has used for a smart balanced budget, lower taxes and better educational options statewide. He has been a strong voice against unnecessary spending and debt and education education reform.

“I am proud of my record as a conservative fighter,” said Reeves. “I pushed successfully for economic policies that encourage job creation and get more investments in classrooms and I have protected the Constitutional freedoms that are important to Mississippians.”
