Gov. Phil Bryant (R) endorsed Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves (R) on Wednesday.

Bryant: “Tate Reeves and I have not only worked together for the last eight years but even before that when he was State Treasurer. I think he’ll do an excellent job as Governor and that is why I’m supporting Tate Reeves as the next Governor for the state of Mississippi.”

“The qualifying deadline is March 1 at 5:00 p.m. Bryant went on to say that the stakes are high for this year’s Governor’s race and it is more important than ever to ensure that a Republican is elected.”

Bryant: “I think what you see when one candidate says, ‘If I lose in a primary, I won’t allow my voters to go back and support the winner,’ then we have an opportunity of dividing this party and losing to the Democrats.” (Y’all Politics)
