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.

Happy 4th to all Americans, especially Mississippians 🇺🇸

Thank you for sharing!!!

Freedom Lovin’ Tate When will the citizens of Mississippi have their ballot initiative back. Our legislators knew they could overthrow the will of the people with the districts not being correct in the law. It was even brought up in committee and our elected legislators refused to fix it knowing it gave the government the ability to silence the vote of the citizens of Mississippi.

We are no longer the land of the free!

It is truly the greatest country in this land❤️

Same to you and your family

Thank you Gov. Reeves. Praying for you, this state and our great country.

Seems as if we had our last truly Independent Day last year. Since then, American have lots a lot of rights thu decisions made by our Courts

Isn't it great that we can openly criticize our government without going to jail? You can't do that in Russia. We aren't perfect, we have real problems, but we are still ahead in regards to the "great experiment."

Happy Independence Day

Happy 4th everyone. Remember it’s as easy to be kind as it is hateful Be kind and grateful 🇺🇸

It’s like a parody site.

Y’all should have voted for Ricky Cole to be MIssissippi Commissioner of Agriculture. He’s actually a farmer in Mississippi, unlike this New York Lobbyist Lawyer. What would he know about agriculture???? #photoopforboth

They are great!!

I would appreciate if you would bring me one also!

YAY watermelon competition FUN 👏👏

Proud of the job you're doing Governor Reeves.

Governor we would love for you to come see our market in Hernando. The top of the State has got it going on and doing it up right. Come see the peachlady!! Happy 4th of July to you and your family.

If you had been truthful about Covid Tate Reeves my son would be here with us for this holiday.

I can think of something better- a different governor.

Well ... Governor ... He wants something .... for sure . Smith County watermelons are the best ... every so often ... I get a yellow meat ... Smith County watermelon ... put in freeze for an hour or so .... then cut in half and use a ice cream scoop ....and scoop out chunks and place in large bowl .... Lord have mercy ... ??? !!!! nothing better

Had my first smith county watermelon the other day. Hauled it back to Oklahoma. It was delicious!!!

,,,hope you paid for it.

Best water melons from Smith county.

Love it my dear friend and brother Tate!!! My Sullivan ancestors and Kin in the Holler in Smith county raise the best melons in the world that sandy soil there is magic!! Laura Leigh and I have ours to enjoy at home with her and my folks in Laurel tomorrow!!! 🙏❤️👍🇺🇸

Smith County has the BEST!

I used to think the same thing. These days I just want to have control of my own uterus. Nice watermelon though.

But our governor can't answer a question from him his paycheck? Why are people telling us how much money to spend in stores on debit card?

All the things you could talk about.... You chose watermelons? You are truly just a simple hillbilly. I wanna know how you plan to take care of the living children living in poverty. 🤡 🍉

Got our Smith County watermelons thanks to Turner's Market in Indianola.

We had one like this yesterday. God bless Mississippi. God bless all who pray. 🇱🇷🙏🏼🇱🇷

Bizarro world Luke and Bo Duke

That's a beautiful watermelon ... fearfully and wonderfully made fruit of the earth. Happy 4th of July Gov. Tate Reeves. 🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸

I remember on the 4th of July it was watermelon day in Atlanta Georgia at the State farmers market in Forest Park you can eat all the watermelon you could eat!

Looks like one of those Clyde Magee watermelons 🍉.

How about fixing of terrible Healthcare standing and infant mortality rate first...

You can start with requiring MS schools to give teen mothers maternity leave without the risk of failing due to absences. Also clean, private areas to pump. If they’re going to be forced to be parents as “punishment” for doing what ALL teenagers do, then give them the opportunity to be good mothers AND finish their education. Sincerely, a teen mom that got 2 weeks to heal and bond with my newborn.

Medicaid and foster care expansion?


Mississippi is ranked the worst state in the nation to raise a child. We have the highest percentage of people living in poverty and the highest infant mortality. We rank at the bottom for access to, and quality of healthcare, and we're at the bottom for access to quality childcare and early learning opportunities. So my question is, shouldn't addressing all those issues have been PHASE ONE, genius? And how can we be sure you will properly fund any of these important pro-life issues when you and your cronies can't be trusted not to divert, misappropriate, or outright steal taxpayer funds meant to help families in need and give it to your pals and donors instead, like what happened in the largest looting of taxpayer funds under YOUR watch? You are a joke.

Thank you for standing up for the unborn, Tate. We’ll be watching.

Universal healthcare access?

You should have used this same energy in saving our flag.

Your movement is outdated! The women of Ms will show you how we really feel!

We watched & you did a great job ... thank you for representing all of us proud Americans & God fearing people of Mississippi!

Thanks Governor Tate Reeves for standing up for the lives of the unborn and for getting the ball rolling that led to the overturning of Roe vs Wade

“Pro-life” This would be funny if it wasn’t so sad. Tate you’ve done absolutely nothing for the born children in this state. The “next phase”??????

Why!!!! So you can wine about President Biden 😂😂😂

Make sure to ban IVF and fertility treatments. If unwanted pregnancy no matter the circumstance is “Gods will” then so is infertility. They can adopt the CHILDREN (not newborn babies that everyone desires) in the adoption system if they want a kid so bad.

Here comes the flag whiners....3...2...1 😂

I am pro-life but with exceptions. For example does this mean ectopic pregnancies now will be allowed to kill the mother? Many issues need to be addressed. You can say God provides but he also gives us the knowledge for advanced medical treatment for such emergencies.

The next phase better be actually improving the quality of life that these forced births are going to bring. But I doubt you care about that, given that you destroyed the quality of life of about half of Mississippians who lost their bodily autonomy due to this whole debacle.

Thank you for standing up for the preborn. God bless you and your family. God bless Mississippi💕

Will you be discussing our stimulus money, other states are getting some ?. Mississippi needs it also.

Our governor: save the children! The poor, defenseless children! Also our governor: doesn't approve P-EBT for the summer like MANY other states while food costs are skyrocketing because Mississippi "doesn't need Biden's money. We're going to get people back to work!" Unbelievable.

Will u be discussing Carolyn Bryant

Should’ve used the same energy for the religious freedom fights!

While you are there please ask Tucker if you can transfer in as his assistant then maybe Mississippi can move forward!!! “Birds of a feather flock together”!!!!

I notice their shel es aren't empty so the shortage isn't worldwide as biden would like us to believe

Mississippi teachers:

This historic pay raise was earned and is well deserved!

As the Constitution clearly spells out and Schoolhouse Rock taught us as kids, Congress makes laws, not the President.

See my statement on the West Virginia v. EPA Supreme Court case.

Ronald Reagan once said, “The values and freedoms we cherish as Americans rest on our fundamental commitment to the sanctity of human life.”

Recognizing this, and celebrating the recent decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, I have declared June to be Sanctity of Life Month!
