MSGOP Chairman Comments on Hughes’ Decision to Run for Lieutenant Governor

May 3, 2018

JACKSON, MS — Mississippi Republican Party (MSGOP) Chairman Lucien Smith released the following statement today after state Rep. Jay Hughes announced his run for Lt. Governor:

“Jay Hughes is an Oxford liberal best known at the capitol for not supporting gun rights, running from legislation to protect the unborn, and generally achieving nothing except getting his name in the papers. Mississippi voters should reject him just as they’ve rejected other liberals like Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama.”
