JACKSON—MSGOP Chairman Joe Nosef issued the following statement regarding Governor Phil Bryant’s State of the State Address:
“Governor Bryant’s continued leadership in developing Mississippi’s economy and helping create more and better jobs for our workers was on full display this evening. He has been a tireless and effective leader, and the results speak for themselves: strong and improving economic indicators and recognition of Mississippi by numerous national organizations and publications as a great place to work and do business.
Perhaps the clearest indicator of our success is the fact that Mississippi Democrats have resorted to highlighting and attempting to downplay the state’s economic achievements under Governor Bryant. If the worst Democrats can come up with to criticize the Governor is positive economic news and awards, then you know things must be going well.
Mississippi has made great strides under Governor Bryant, and the coming years will be no different.”
JACKSON—MSGOP Chairman Joe Nosef issued the following statement in response to President Obama’s state of the union address:
“Unfortunately, the President tonight showed no signs of changing the course of his administration, even after his party was soundly defeated by voters in the 2014 midterm elections. Despite our national debt reaching $18.1 Trillion this month under his watch, the President is calling for billions of dollars in tax increases and higher government spending.
And while the President continues to praise bipartisanship in theory, he also continues to reject it in practice, the latest examples being his use of executive orders on immigration and his threat to veto bipartisan proposals such as the Keystone Pipeline.
It is no surprise that Democrats in Mississippi can’t change parties fast enough.”
Dear fellow Republicans:
Today, we honor the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., whose vision and determination helped America become a better nation. His words and legacy continue to shape our hearts and minds.
Even though we have made significant progress as a result of the work of Dr. King and many others, we must continue our efforts to make America a place of unlimited opportunity and freedom for all.
Today reminds us of our continued responsibility to ensure that every Mississippian has the unfettered ability to strive for a better life.
