New Ad Features Coast Sheriffs, Touts Hosemann’s Dedication to Miss. Gulf Coast

Pascagoula, Miss.—Two Mississippi Gulf Coast sheriffs take leading roles in Delbert Hosemann’s latest ad for Lieutenant Governor.

The spot is a spin on Hosemann’s iconic commercial from his 2007 run for Secretary of State, which played on his unique name to inform viewers of his record and goals if elected.

“We’re here to talk to you about our friend ‘Gilbert’ Hosemann for Lieutenant Governor,” Jackson County Sheriff Mike Ezell says.

Harrison County Sheriff Troy Peterson corrects Ezell: “It’s Delbert, Sheriff.”

The two go on to talk about Hosemann’s commitment to the Coast and to law enforcement.

During his three terms as Secretary of State, Hosemann has turned back more than $100 million for projects on the Gulf Coast through Tidelands leases, and acquired and conserved thousands of acres of land for future generations.

As State Land Commissioner, Hosemann continues to fight for answers about the operation of the Bonnet Carré Spillway, which recently caused a spike in the death of marine life in the Mississippi Sound.

“‘Gilbert’ cares about the Coast as much as we do,” Ezell concludes.

The General Election is November 5, 2019. For more information about Hosemann’s campaign for Lieutenant Governor, visit
