Reeves vs. Hood this November in Mississippi governor’s race
JACKSON, Miss. (AP) — Second-term Republican Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves and four-term Democratic state Attorney General Jim Hood will go head to head this November in a battle for the Mississippi governor’s office.
Reeves won the Republican nomination Tuesday in a primary runoff. He defeated retired Mississippi Supreme Court Chief Justice Bill Waller Jr.
Reeves is asking Waller’s supporters to back him and prevent the state from electing a “liberal Democrat” to the governor’s office.
Hood says Reeves ran a negative campaign and will “throw around labels” while Hood will focus on the issues.
