Hosemann Begins Final Weeks of Republican Primary Campaign With More Than $3 Million Cash-On-Hand

Jackson, Miss. – With less than a month to go before the August 6 Republican Primary, Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann’s campaign for Lieutenant Governor continues to be in a strong position. In June 2019, Hosemann raised $255,910 from individuals, businesses, and organizations across the State.

According to a campaign finance report released today, $3,003,303.59 cash-on-hand remains in Hosemann’s account as of June 30, 2019. The report, detailing campaign finance activity from June 1 to June 30, showed 126 donors contributing.

“We have a bright future ahead in Mississippi for our children and grandchildren. We’re ready to get to work improving our roads, economy, healthcare, and education systems through strong conservative leadership,” Hosemann said.

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.
