Mississippi’s rock-ribbed Republican governor, Tate Reeves, is basking in his victory and he wants everyone to know that President Donald Trump had his back throughout the campaign. With a room full of enthusiastic supporters, Gov. Reeves expressed his deep admiration for his constituents and showered praise on the President, whom he recently spoke with following his successful reelection.
The Governor didn’t hold back in expressing his gratitude to President Trump, saying, “I want to thank someone who I spoke with just a few minutes ago: President Donald J. Trump. He was very, very adamant: ‘Please tell the people of Mississippi, I love y’all.'”

It’s no surprise that Gov. Reeves has been a key figure in the culture wars that have energized GOP voters in recent years. Mississippi, always at the forefront of conservative values, was one of the earliest states to protect minors by outlawing gender-affirming care. Gov. Reeves has also stood up against Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom of California, who seems to take pleasure in riling up Mississippians with pro-abortion billboards.
While the election results were mixed across the country, southern states have remained a stronghold for President Trump. Kentucky’s Republican Attorney General, Daniel Cameron, unfortunately couldn’t unseat the Democratic incumbent Governor. Virginia, known for its nasty clashes between Republicans and angry progressives, saw Democrats narrowly winning control of both the House and Senate, putting a damper on Republican Governor Glenn Youngkin’s agenda. In Ohio, pro-choice activists celebrated a victory as voters approved a constitutional amendment, defying Republican Governor Mike Dewine’s objections.
But fear not, conservatives! President Trump can still look forward to strong support in places like Florida, where a majority of the state’s GOP congressional delegation has endorsed him, while giving Governor Ron DeSantis the cold shoulder. In Alabama, President Trump’s approval ratings are so high that even Fox News considered moving the third GOP presidential debate to a local university just to entice him to attend. Although the move was ultimately nixed, it speaks volumes about the South’s unwavering support for the Republican frontrunner.
With Gov. Reeves securing Mississippi’s electoral delegates for President Trump in the upcoming presidential election, it’s clear that the conservative wave is still going strong. Despite some setbacks in other states, the South remains a bastion of Republican support. The values and principles that President Trump embodies are deeply ingrained in this region, and it’s comforting to know that he has allies like Gov. Reeves fighting for them. Let’s hope this momentum continues as we prepare for the future with conservatism at the helm.
