Nettleton – A new Morning Consult poll found that Tate Reeves is tied for the most unpopular governor in the country - a new low, even for Tate Reeves. Hey Tate! Mississippians don’t like you. They really, really don’t like you!
And why don’t Mississippians like Tate Reeves? Maybe because they know he doesn’t care a single bit about them. A poll in January found that 57 percent of Mississippians preferred “someone else” when asked about their preference in this year’s governor’s race. And another poll in January found Reeves with a 54 percent unfavorable rating - with 64 percent giving Tate Reeves an unfavorable rating for his handling of the welfare scandal.
As he faces questions about his involvement in the largest corruption scandal in state history, Tate Reeves has deflected responsibility, and he doesn’t mention that he failed to conduct any oversight as Lieutenant Governor that could have prevented this scandal from happening in the first place. While more hospitals face closure, workers laid off, and services lost on his watch, Tate Reeves hasn’t said a single thing about the hospital crisis that grows by the day.
“Congratulations to Tate Reeves for being tied for the most unpopular governor in the country - you earned it. Mississippians awarded Tate Reeves this honor because he is at the center of the largest public corruption scandal in state history by directing $1.3 million dollars in illegal payments to his personal trainer and canceling his personal trainer’s deposition by firing the former federal prosecutor leading the investigation,” said Michael Beyer, Communications Director for Brandon Presley.
Brandon Presley is a fighter who keeps his promises, stands up for the little guy, and isn't afraid to ruffle more than a few feathers to deliver results for hardworking Mississippi families. Brandon served as Mayor of Nettleton from 2001 to 2007, where he got the town moving again, then balanced the budget every year and cut taxes twice. As Public Service Commissioner, Brandon opened up meetings that had been closed to the public for decades, brought high-speed internet to some of the most remote and forgotten parts of Mississippi, put people back to work with the Hire Mississippi program, and saved taxpayers over 6 billion dollars.
