Jackson, Miss. – May 2019 donations show Mississippians continue to strongly support Republican Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann’s bid for Lieutenant Governor. In one month, the campaign raised $259,600.
In all, $2,882,267.67 cash-on-hand remains in Hosemann’s coffer as of May 31, 2019, according to a campaign finance report released today. The report, detailing campaign finance activity from May 1 to May 31, 2019, showed more than 150 donors contributing.
“One of the points resonating with voters is the record we have worked hard to establish over the past three terms,” Hosemann said. “As Secretary of State, I made promises—like implementing a constitutional Voter ID law—and I kept them. We will bring the same level of commitment to this new role in order to make our State an even better place for our children and grandchildren.”
Endorsements are also rolling in, with the Mississippi Association of Realtors PAC, Mississippi Automobile Dealers Association, and Mississippi Manufacturers Association, among others, throwing their weight behind Hosemann’s bid this month.
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, 10-stop tour to businesses in Brookhaven, Columbus, DeSoto County, Greenwood, Hattiesburg, Meridian, Rankin County, Tupelo, and the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Since then, Hosemann, members of his campaign staff, and volunteers have been on the road participating in forums, festivals, and other events across the State.
The Republican Primary Election for the Lieutenant Governor’s race is August 6.
