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.

Now, when is Mississippi going to draw up secession plans from this train wreck country that we are living inside! Roger Wicker came out this week in full support of the communist Zelensky and more of our money being poured into the money laundering in Ukraine, which I am sure Wicker is a recipient from! He will assuredly vote for the upcoming globalist push for an annual mandatory "vaccine", because he attended the WEF in Davos and that is where he was bought off! Every state in the union should immediately draw up plans to cut off Washington DC from any money and that means leaving them behind! 70 percent of USA senators are now communists and the president and his entire admin as well! If states do not leave DC then all the people inside them are in peril! Please act now!

Tate Reeves for Governor. You have my vote and support!

You sir need to hang it up you are done in politics you let down over 776 thousands of Mississippi-voters over your political agenda #we are the 74

Wish I had phone service, maybe some of that broadband I hear about. I've given up on drinkable water and a hospital.


Being Christian doesn’t make you a good judge… if anything it makes it impossible for you to be impartial

Do you think Hal is going to start persecuting pregnant women again?

Until he can give some genuine accolades to a non-christian person; I'm going to continue to call him a bad (and heavily pandering) christian.

Babylon Christian man & his family! Y'all are going to stop mocking the Living God, I promise you all that! Sitting up here praising man on the Sabbath Day, shame on you! Bunch of blasphemers & hypocrites!

Seems like a lot of people feel kind of bad! I don't know what they are talking about?

Brandon Presley for Mississippi

Is this new judge a part of the Reeves/Bryant crime family?

Educated families won't move here because of our anti- family vaccine laws. I get calls regularly from people with advanced degrees wanting clarification on our vaccine laws as they consider moving to Mississippi. Mississippi treats people like they're ignorant and uneducated, so that's what we'll keep getting. Maybe it's by design? One has to wonder.

in the meantime....the water in Jackson is still poisoned and undrinkable....

Still no mention of the Millions Mississippi has collected from the Medical Cannabis Businesses!

It was my pleasure to attend the swearing-in of Judge Brad Touchstone in the 15th Circuit Court.

He will be fair and just, hold criminals accountable, and get Mississippians the help they need.

I will continue to appoint judges who recognize the importance of public safety.

“My identity is in Jesus.”

To be clear….I was for Dak on Sunday! But what an incredibly powerful message from Brock Purdy.

Proud of the 49ers QB!

If you know Joe Max Higgins, CEO of the Golden Triangle Development LINK, then you know this means a lot coming from him.

Appreciate your kind words and everything you’re doing to strengthen the Golden Triangle and Mississippi. Keep up the good work!

Mississippians oppose efforts by far-left progressives to push experimental gender surgeries on our children.

Today’s Do No Harm rally was a powerful reminder of this and an important call to action.

I stand with the people of our state and against all who would hurt our kids.
