Nettleton - Today, former Republican Congressman Mike Parker is endorsing Brandon Presley for governor today because of his bipartisan record of delivering for Mississippi. The campaign is also releasing an endorsement video from Congressman Parker highlighting his support for Brandon Presley.
“I’m proud to endorse Brandon Presley because we need more public servants like him who will roll up their sleeves and tackle Mississippi’s biggest challenges,” said Mike Parker, former Republican Congressman and 1999 Republican Gubernatorial Nominee. “Brandon worked across party lines to deliver broadband, and as governor, he will work in a bipartisan way to tackle corruption and solve our state’s hospital crisis. Brandon Presley is pro-life, he’s a good man, and he’ll always look out for Mississippi.”
“It’s an honor to earn Congressman Parker’s endorsement in this race, and it shows we are building a broad coalition of Republicans, Democrats, and Independents who are ready to end the hospital crisis and put state government back on the side of Mississippi families, not just Tate Reeves’ well-connected buddies,” said Brandon Presley, Gubernatorial Nominee. “Congressman Parker knows that our hospitals and the health of 220,000 working Mississippians is at stake, and that’s why I’m proud he has my back in this race.”

CONGRESSMAN MIKE PARKER: I’m Mike Parker.
It’s a big deal for me as a former Republican member of Congress and as a former Republican nominee for governor to vote for a Democrat.
But I’m supporting Brandon Presley because he’s a good man, he’s a conservative, he’s pro-life, and he’s exactly what Mississippi needs at this point in time.
Tate Reeves has failed Mississippi.
Brandon will not.
