Trump endorses Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves's reelection bid
While the state is generally regarded as solidly Republican, recent polling has suggested that the gubernatorial contest may be much closer.
Former President Donald Trump on Wednesday endorsed Mississippi Republican Gov. Tate Reeves's reelection bid ahead of the Nov. 7 contest.
"Crooked Joe Biden is absolutely destroying our country. He threw open the border, he wrecked our economy, inflation is a disaster, and everything else is just more expensive. It's not good," Trump declared. "Now Joe Biden wants to put his candidate – and this is his candidate, Brandon Presley – in as Mississippi's governor."
"The citizens of Mississippi must not let that happen. Joe Biden's people are funding Brandon Presley's campaign. They own him. He'll do whatever they want him to do," he continued. "So, vote to reelect my friend, Gov. Tate Reeves. He's done a fantastic job. The radical left maniacs who are attacking me are also after him. I'm asking you to make time to vote. Go out and find that time. You gotta vote for Gov. Tate Reeves. He fights for the people of Mississippi and he has my total and complete endorsement."
The Mississippi Republican Party shared the video, saying "President Trump is right! Mississippi is stronger under Governor Tate Reeves. We don’t need someone beholden to out-of-state donors in the Governor’s mansion. VOTE REPUBLICAN on November 7!"
