Jackson, Miss.—Republican Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann kicks off his bid for Lieutenant Governor with a formidable $2,640,884 in his coffer, according to a campaign finance report released today.
The report, detailing campaign finance activity for 2018, showed more than 700 donors contributed to his campaign last year, with donations totaling almost $839,000, and a current cash-on-hand of $2,640,884.
“We are grateful to have the support of hundreds of Mississippians across the State, and we look forward to getting the message out about our priorities for the future over the next several months,” said Hosemann, currently serving in his third term as Secretary of State.
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.
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; encouraging small business and start-up growth; shoring up aging infrastructure; and improving access to healthcare and health outcomes.
