Presley For Governor Campaign Releases New TV Ad, “On The Ballot,” Emphasizing Brandon’s Hometown Values And Highlighting His Commitment To All Mississippians

BRANDON PRESLEY: “When My Name Goes On The Ballot In November, Your Name Goes On The Ballot In November.”


October 24, 2023

Nettleton - Today, the Presley for Governor campaign launched the campaign’s closing ad, “On The Ballot,” a sixty-second ad where Brandon highlights the values he learned growing up in the small town of Nettleton and being raised by a single mama, and how he will carry those values to the governor's office and be a leader for all Mississippians. 

Brandon Presley knows that when his name goes on the ballot on November 7, the names of all Mississippians – not just the ones who can write big campaign checks, goes on the ballot. 


In the ad, Brandon Presley tells the story of how his father was killed on the first day of third grade and how he was raised by a single, hardworking mama. Growing up poor, and going on to be mayor of his small hometown of Nettleton, Brandon cut taxes twice. He understands where so many Mississippi families are, unlike Tate Reeves, who only cares about the people who write campaign donation checks. 

“Brandon Presley is running a race for all Mississippians, not just the ones who are born rich and lucky,” said Katharine Kurz, a spokesperson for the Presley for Governor campaign. “Brandon was raised right - by a single mama and with faith in God, he has carried the values he learned in his hometown of Nettleton throughout his career in public service, making sure government works for Mississippi families like the one he grew up in, and he will keep carrying these values all the way to the governor’s office.”

Watch the ad here and view a full transcript below:

BRANDON PRESLEY: Folks who grew up the way I grew up don’t get a chance to run for governor. 

My daddy was murdered the first day I was in the third grade and my mother was a widow and a single parent that struggled every single day just to pay the bills. 

I understand where working people are in Mississippi. Everybody cannot be born rich and lucky and that’s why you need a governor that will stand up for the values of Mississippi. 

I’m running this race on the values that I learned in my small hometown where I was mayor and I cut taxes twice. A town that's near and dear to my heart. 

The values of small town leadership, where in elected office you can do the things that help other people, because that’s what it’s all about.

Tate Reeves doesn't care anything about working people. If you can’t write a campaign check, you’re shut out of state government. 

So for all those in Mississippi that are left out, that Tate Reeves doesn’t know exist, when my name goes on the ballot in November, your name goes on the ballot in November.
