Mississippi Republican Governor Tate Reeves Wins Re-Election

Mis­sis­sip­pi Repub­li­can Gov­er­nor Tate Reeves fend­ed off a chal­lenge from Demo­c­rat Bran­don Pres­ley on Tues­day after weeks of media spec­u­la­tion that Democ­rats might take the governor’s man­sion for the first time in 20 years. 
Reeves defeat­ed Pres­ley by about 39,000 votes, tak­ing 51.8% of the vote. Pres­ley con­ced­ed around 11 p.m. CST on Tues­day. 
“This vic­to­ry belongs to you,” Reeves said on Tues­day. “This vic­to­ry is more than just who will occu­py the governor’s man­sion over the next four years. It’s real­ly about the direc­tion that our state will go over the next four years. Mis­sis­sip­pi has momen­tum.”
