Tate Reeves Accepts Debate Invitations

JACKSON — Today, Tate Reeves announced that he is accepting two debate invitations from Nexstar Media Group, which operates TV stations serving North, Central, and South Mississippi. The televised debates, in Jackson and Hattiesburg, will take place on September 25th and October 10th.

“I’m looking forward to debating Jim Hood. He’s a liberal and I’m a conservative. I want to take Mississippi forward and he wants to take us back to the time when Democrats ran everything,” said Lt. Governor Tate Reeves. “Jim Hood will not be able to hide his liberal agenda on the debate stage and it’s time for the voters to see the clear choice in this race.”


Tate Reeves is a product of small-town Mississippi and a lifelong Mississippian. A strong conservative, Tate’s leadership in state government has focused on the principles of guarding the taxpayers’ dollars, improving educational opportunity, and growing new careers so that the state’s best and brightest can stay in our state.

Tate is pro-life, and is committed to protecting the rights of the unborn. He is committed to protecting the Second Amendment and will fight Washington liberals who try to take those rights away.

Tate’s business training in the banking sector made him the state’s foremost advocate for balancing the state budget while minimizing state debt. His conservative management helped fill the state’s “rainy day fund” and reduce the overall debt burden. Tate’s upbringing in Florence’s public schools made him driven to reform the education system to increase opportunity.

A father of three and husband to another small-town Mississippian, the former Elee Williams of Tylertown, Tate Reeves is dedicated to creating a future Mississippi in which all our children can thrive and stay at home to raise their children.
