Nettleton - Today, the Presley for Governor campaign launched a new ad, “Hunt,” highlighting how Mississippians can’t find Tate Reeves since he is hiding from them. Tate won’t answer questions about his role in the largest public corruption scandal in state history, why he won’t expand Medicaid to save our hospitals, or why he is dodging debates.
Brandon Presley has proposed five debates - while Tate Reeves is nowhere to be found in planning debates or responding to debate organizers.
For weeks, Reeves has refused to answer questions about his own misuse of taxpayer dollars - why he spent $3.3 million collectively on updates and renovations to the Governor’s Mansion, $2.4 million of which were taxpayer dollars and included a meditation garden and a lemon tree room, why he spent at least $31,000 in taxpayer funds to take trips on Mississippi’s state airplane to political events and events unrelated to his role as governor, including fundraisers, or why he gave taxpayer dollars to a company that previously failed to deliver jobs for Mississippi days after the company’s president donated $10,000 to his campaign.
“Tate Reeves won’t show his face on his own tv ads and has gone into hiding from Mississippians because he can’t answer for his central role in the largest public corruption scandal in state history, why he spent taxpayer dollars on a $4,000 icemaker, a lemon tree room and meditation garden for himself, or why he doles out favors for his campaign donors at the expense of Mississippi families,” said Katharine Kurz, a spokesperson for the Presley for Governor campaign.
Watch the ad here and view a full transcript below:
NARRATOR: Tate Reeves has gone missing. He refuses to face the people.
My job? Hunt him down.
Reeves doesn’t want to talk about the fact that our hospitals are closing, and he won’t expand Medicaid to save them.
Or answer questions about being at the center of the largest public corruption scandal in state history.
And Tate Reeves refuses to show up and debate his opponent for governor, Brandon Presley.
Four more years of Tate Reeves? Woof.
BRANDON PRESLEY: I’m Brandon Presley, and unlike Tate Reeves, I won’t hide from the people of Mississippi.
