Jackson, Miss. (WAPT) – Republican Lt. Gov. Delbert Hosemann is seeking a second term. But first, he must defeat Democrat D. Ryan Grover.
Hosemann said voters have told him they want the state to be run like a business, and for leaders at the state capitol to be frugal in how their tax dollars are spent.
Hosemann said he has a vision for the state and sees it by educating children, getting infrastructure built and lowering taxes.
Grover, a Hattiesburg native, has worked in business since graduating from the University of Mississippi in 2018. He’s run on promises to make the Magnolia State competitive in the tech industry and restore the ballot initiative process.
Grover said he doesn’t think the legislature did enough during the last session and thinks he could be the difference next year.
