Empty Chair October: It’s Been 27 Days Since Mississippians Started Voting And Brandon Continues To Debate While Tate Reeves Hides

Election Day Is Coming Closer - So Why Won’t Tate Reeves Answer Mississippians’ Questions?


Natchez – Tonight, Brandon Presley will participate in another gubernatorial debate of the cycle, an NAACP forum in Natchez. Tate Reeves declined another invitation to participate in this debate, so Brandon will be participating in another debate by himself. Tate Reeves continues to hide from Mississippians and won’t answer tough questions from the oldest and largest civil rights organization in the country. Absentee voting in Mississippi started on September 23, making it 27 days that have gone by without Mississippians getting the answers they deserve from Tate Reeves. 

Brandon, who completed his 82 county tour today, is not leaving a stone unturned in this election. Tate Reeves isn’t visiting all 82 counties. And as one of the most unpopular governors in the country, according to a Morning Consult poll, his campaign team probably knows that the more Mississippians see of Tate Reeves, the less they like him. But Mississippians are asking questions about why their hospitals are closing, what Tate’s involvement in the largest public corruption in state history is, and why they are still paying the highest tax on groceries in the country. It’s time Tate Reeves shows up and answers them. 

“Every day that Mississippians are voting is a day that Mississippians deserve answers,” said Brandon Presley, Democratic Gubernatorial Nominee. “No matter how hard Tate Reeves works to hide, I will be out there, answering questions and talking to Mississippians who are ready for a new day in Mississippi come November.”

Brandon Presley challenged Tate Reeves to five debates two months ago. Tate has accepted none of the five, but separately announced a 6th debate that Brandon has agreed to.
