Governor’s Race Shockingly Limited to Sole Political Debate – Prepare for Epic Showdown!

Only One Gubernatorial Debate Scheduled Despite Promises of Multiple

Despite his previous commitment to holding multiple debates with challenger Brandon Presley, incumbent Gov. Tate Reeves has agreed to participate in only one debate, which will take place on November 1st, just days before the election. In a press conference in September, Reeves had expressed excitement about debating Presley and setting the record straight with voters. However, it now appears that the single debate was agreed upon to counter Presley’s claims of dodging and hiding from the public. Reeves’ campaign has not provided any comment on the matter.

In contrast, Presley had accepted invitations for five gubernatorial debates in October and had expressed willingness to debate Reeves at any time and place. He attended the events that were still held without Reeves, even going as far as bringing an empty chair and a mocked-up photo of Reeves for the debates.

The November 1st debate will be the only one held for the gubernatorial race and the only statewide office debate this election cycle. Several challengers have accused Mississippi incumbents of avoiding debates.
