President Trump will be bringing a Keep America Great rally to Tupelo Mississippi next week and he is coming with a purpose. He is coming to endorse Republican Lt Governor Tate Reeves who runs November 5th for Governor against Democrat Jim Hood
Reeves has worked hard this year to pair himself with Trump in television and digital advertisements, tweeting about the president more than 50 times in 2019.
“Thank you Mr. President,” Reeves tweeted Wednesday evening after the endorsement. “The Democrats are out-of-control and Jim Hood is completely with them. We have to stand together for the future of our great state.”
Gov. Phil Bryant, a self-described “close friend” of the president, talked at a GOP unity luncheon in September about the importance of a Trump endorsement to 2019 Republican candidates in ruby red Mississippi.Mississippi Today
“We’ll be reaching out to the White House,” Bryant said on Sept. 9. “He’s got a lot of jobs to do, but I hope there will be an opening somewhere along the schedule before November. I hope and I intend to welcome him here when he comes to campaign for Republicans.”
