For All Mississippi

It was my greatest honor to be sworn in as Mississippi’s 65th Governor on January 14, 2020.

Standing before all of Mississippi, I promised that this administration would be an administration for all Mississippi. That I would defend the loving culture that underpins our quality of life and work to grow an economy that lifts all of our families. I am determined to honor that promise.

I am asking today for you to join me in that mission. We must care about each other enough to overcome our differences. We must be faithful to each other enough to outlast our shortcomings. And we must be committed to each other enough to raise our expectations.

When I took that first oath of office as State Treasurer in 2003, I did not know how long my service would last. All I knew is that you, the people of Mississippi, had demonstrated a faith in me that I might never be able to meet.

I have never underestimated your trust. I have never forgotten the oath to pursue service with the help of our God. And I will wake up every day working to bring us together to make our state be all it can be. Work that will be done by all of Mississippi.

Good job explaining our reasoning, Governor!

Great interview Tate. Proud of you for standing up for unborn babies that can't speak for themselves.

I could not be more proud of my governor!

Saw it live. Good job Mr. Governor

Thank you, Governor! THANK YOU for taking a stand for the unborn and representing our state in such a godly manner. We are so blessed to have you leading our state!

Thank you Governor Reeves!

I appreciate your stand on this Governor!! May God bless you for it !!

You did very well, Governor. May God bless you for standing to protect the lives of innocent babies.

Great job Governor!!

So thankful to call TATE REEVES my Governor... Great job GOVERNOR❤❤

I can’t understand why no one talks about the 5th commandment: “Thy Shall Not Kill”. The constitution has nothing to say about abortion. That’s because it’s a commandment of God. God bless the babies. 🙏🏼

“Honest and respectful,” coming from the man who calls pro-cannabis voters “stoners” and thinks anyone who disagrees with him hates America.

Thank you for trying to protect the unborn child. May God bless you!

Thank you, Governor!

Thank you for standing up for our babies!

If you are seeking a culture that promotes life, then accept Medicaid expansion in Mississippi.

I thank God every day that you are our Governor! Keep up the good work!!

Proud to be a resident of this state. Thank you Governor Tate ❤️

Well said, Governor

This interview was a far cry from the last one he did, when he compared abortions to the vaccine.

Hope it backfires on y'all, make the liberals and dems mad where they come out and vote you all out.

You did so good Governor. Explained everything perfectly. Thank you.

👏👏

👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

I’ll be on Good Morning America: What You Need To Know at 12pm to discuss how Mississippi is leading the charge in our nation’s fight to protect life. Please join me if you can! ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you for what you do. I wouldn’t want your job. I support you in prayer. There will always be people who criticize. At the end of the day it’s you and what you knew/felt was right. Leave a legacy of fighting to protect life in our state. Press on.

Are you gonna talk about all the embryos destroyed by fertility clinics every week? If not, just admit in TV that it's about controlling women. Life starts at conception right? When the egg is fertalized? Where's the outrage. Did you use it all up railing against women not wanting to be forced into the role of incubator?

The same governor that led his state to the bottom of the nation in vaccination rates, and led the nation in deaths per capita is preaching about how Mississippi is leading the charge in protecting life. Isn't it ironic? Don't you think? A little too ironic? Yeah, I really do think.

Isn’t it ironic that the party of small government and ‘your freedom’ is pushing to use government to control the private decisions of a woman’s life? Forget how you feel about abortion, voters, and tell me how you reconcile that hypocrisy.

"Leading the charge in our nation's fight to protect life" You mean you're actually gonna do something to curb the spread of infections? You know, protecting lives?

Ms is not leading in anything. YOU wait around to see what other states are going to do. Florida and Texas are leading the republican agenda, you are waiting around until you see what they are going to do, then about 15 other republican states, then you say you are going to do what they do, but you still drag your feet. If you really cared, you would have been the first one suing about the unconstitutional mandates, no you were like 15th and still never sued for the medical community.

Last time I checked, Mississippi has the highest infant mortality rate in the nation … if you want to protect life… I suggest you start THERE.

Thanks Governor Reeves! I listened to you on The Blaze this morning. Thanks for taking a stand on abortion. Protecting the unborn is the right thing to do regardless of the many negative comments.

There you go again, Gov. Reeves, making the dems. mad! Keep up the good work! Sooo very proud of you!!

Just another way to embarrass our state.

But you have less than a 50% vaccination rate in the state. You must be trying to protect the unborn so you can kill them off later with poverty and poor healthcare? 🤷🏽‍♀️

Could you also talk about why you haven’t called a special session to help those adults and children in our state who are suffering daily. I appreciate your concern for the unborn, I truly do, but I can’t understand why you aren’t concerned with those in Mississippi who need medical marijuana and who need it NOW!

Thank you, Governor, for the direction you are leading Mississippi in the abortion issue! I am proud of our great state and encourage all our leaders to lead us biblically! Someone must start somewhere and nothing is more Important than saving precious babies.

Thank you for having the courage to speak on behalf of those that cannot speak for themselves. God bless you~

Thank you for protecting the rights of the unborn! Since they can’t speak for themselves - we need to!

Tate Reeves doesn’t care about women. If he did he would support Medicaid expansion and do something to lift women from poverty in Mississippi!

Prayers Govenor. Stand strong.

🙌🏻🙌🏻‼️In the MIGHTY NAME OF JESUS‼️

These people just want to take away womens reproductive rights. Women have fought for years. And this is setting us back decades.

There are still so many people with covid and dying from covid in Mississippi. But you act like everything is fine, there are so many other states getting help but we can't because of your decisions. And for some reason you think we are out of the pandemic. I really don't think you know what you are doing. Your just not good for Mississippi. I am praying for you 🙏

Whether or not to have an abortion should be between the female and her Creator Whether to perform an abortion should be between the doctor and the Creator

I thought church and state was supposed to be separated. Since I’m seeing a lot of “traditional” people here.

Good job on interview. Thanks for taking a stand a lot of people won’t take

Can Mississippi help lead or at least follow the other states with Medicaid expansion? Let’s protect the rights of the unborn and the born.

how about medical cannabis for people who are currently alive but have chronic pain conditions? Are you fighting for them? It is obvious that you are not.

Grateful for a thoughtful conversation with the Good Morning America team on the major pro-life Supreme Court case before us today. We can have honest discussion and respect one another—that is what this country is all about. In fact, it is crucial as we seek a culture that promotes life! ...

As Mississippi prepares for a landmark Supreme Court case, I’m proud to defend our pro-life laws and I was proud to do so on Meet the Press today.

Our laws stand up to tough questions because the far-left cannot admit a fundamental truth: abortion takes an innocent life.

We protect freedoms in Mississippi, especially an innocent baby’s right to live.
...

Incredibly thankful for all the blessings God has given @firstladyofms and me - good friends, healthy and smart daughters, and the ability to live in the greatest state and country in the world!

From my family to yours - Happy Thanksgiving!

But none more important than Husband to Elee.

Happy 20th Anniversary @firstladyofms!
