GOP holds kickoff event as party turns attention to November

With November’s general election a little over two months away, the Mississippi Republican Party held a kickoff event for the party’s ticket as the candidates get ready to head back out onto the campaign trail.

The event brought all eight of the Republican nominees for statewide office together, and the public was invited to hear their vision for Mississippi. Among several candidates for district offices, those who attended the event included:

  • Governor Phil Bryant
  • Tate Reeves – Nominee for Governor
  • Delbert Hosemann – Nominee for Lt. Governor

  • State Auditor Shad White – Unopposed
  • David McRae – Nominee for Treasurer
  • Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney – Incumbent
  • Ag. Commissioner Andy Gipson – Incumbent

Each speaker, beginning with Governor Bryant, spoke to members of the public at Mama Hamil’s Restaurant in Madison about what they believe to be the key differences between the Republican and Democratic Party platforms heading into the elections.
