Jackson, Miss.—With a month to go before the November 5 General Election, Lieutenant Governor candidate Delbert Hosemann is reporting a formidable $2.73 million in his campaign coffer.
Since July 1, Hosemann has raised $539,687.77 from individuals, businesses, and organizations. According to a campaign finance report released today, $2,733,977.93 cash-on-hand remains in Hosemann’s account as of September 30, 2019. The report detailed campaign finance activity from July 1 to September 30.
“As we travel the State, we’re getting great feedback about our plan for an even brighter Mississippi for our children and grandchildren. We’re staying positive and talking about our record of getting things done, and that is resonating with voters,” Hosemann said. “If Mississippians choose to hire me for the job, I’ll be ready to hit the ground running in January on healthcare, education, and growing our economy.”
As a steadfast conservative who spent most of his career as a businessman in the private sector, Hosemann’s platform touches several major areas centered on growing Mississippi’s economy. These include: refocusing on skills training and increasing the State’s educated workforce; reducing unnecessary regulations and streamlining state government; encouraging small business and start-up growth; shoring up aging infrastructure; and improving access to healthcare and improving health outcomes.
Hosemann announced his campaign for Lieutenant Governor in early January with a three-day tour to businesses in Vicksburg, Brookhaven, Columbus, DeSoto County, Greenwood, Hattiesburg, Meridian, Rankin County, Tupelo, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Since then, Hosemann and his wife, Lynn—along with campaign staff and dozens of volunteers—have been on the road participating in forums, roundtables, festivals, and other events across the State.
