The result of the Mississippi Governor’s race is officially in.
Incumbent Republican Governor Tate Reeves managed to defend his post from challenger Brandon Presley, who is, oddly enough, Elvis Presley’s cousin.
“Thank you to President Trump for this great endorsement. His work to make America great again led our nation to record economic growth, lower taxes, a stronger position on the world stage, and a safer country.
I’m proud of the work we’ve done to champion those same conservative policies and pro-America agenda in Mississippi.”
The MAGA community celebrated Reeves’ victory over Presley in these posts made to the X social media platform:

Don Jr did more than Ronna McDaniel with this tweet and helped Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves get re-elected..
I’ve been telling you for almost two years that Scott Pressler should be the head of the RNC! It’s time for that change and that time is NOW!!! https://t.co/XKJOOEwbdH

Weird that the bought and paid for desantis Twitter shills aren’t talking about Trump-endorsed @tatereeves avoiding a runoff last night in the Mississippi Governor’s race.
Tate won BIG and thanked @realDonaldTrump for his support!
Great job, Tate!

The New York Post provided the election numbers:
Reeves, first elected in 2019 after serving two terms as Mississippi’s lieutenant governor, had received 52.3% of the vote compared to state utility regulator Brandon Presley’s 45.8% when Presley called Reeves to concede the race.
