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.”

Chairman Joe Nosef Comments on the President’s State of the Union Address

on Jan 20, 2015

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.”

Chairman Joe Nosef Responds to the President’s State of the Union Address

January 28, 2014

Bobby Morgan: (601-948-5191)

MSGOP Chairman Joe Nosef:

“Tonight, Americans heard a clear vision from this President – a vision that is based on the following three Democrat party beliefs: 1) taxes are too low 2) government is too small and 3) our country can’t do any better than we are doing right now.

This shows just how out of touch the President and the Democrat Party are with the country and Mississippi. President Obama’s administration has hurt hardworking Americans. The President fails to recognize that the federal government cannot solve every problem this country faces. The Republican Party remains committed to building a stronger, more competitive economy that puts this country back on the right track. We will do that without government centered approaches but instead policies that rely on the resolve and exceptionalism of the American people.”

MSGOP Congratulates Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves

November 18, 2013

The Mississippi Republican Party congratulates Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves on being elected Chairman of the Republican Lieutenant Governors Association.

“It is no surprise that Tate was chosen to lead the RLGA during this important time” said MSGOP chairman Joe Nosef. “Other GOP lieutenant governors across the country realize what we in Mississippi have known for quite some time: Tate is a strong leader and public servant who has fought for years to successfully advance conservative values. The RLGA is fortunate to have Lt. Gov. Reeves in this role.”

MSGOP Response to Medicaid Reauthorization

In response to the reauthorization of Medicaid, MSGOP Chairman Joe Nosef said, “Medicaid will continue and be saved for the current population of beneficiaries, and Obamacare has been rejected. We appreciate the leadership of Governor Phil Bryant, Lieutenant Governor Tate Reeves, and Speaker Philip Gunn as they worked together efficiently and successfully for the taxpayers. Thankfully, House Democrats were ultimately unsuccessful in their attempts to kill the Division of Medicaid.”

Medicaid Resolution

on Jun 11, 2013

State Republican Party Leaders Vote Unanimously to Resist Medicaid Expansion in Mississippi

Jackson – In a unanimous vote on Monday, the Mississippi Republican Party Central Committee passed a resolution supporting Governor Phil Bryant, Lt. Governor Tate Reeves, Speaker of the House Philip Gunn, and all of the Republican elected officials resisting the implementation of Obamacare – including the expansion of Medicaid.

The resolution also supports GOP officials in their attempts to find better alternatives to improve the healthcare of Mississippians.

“I appreciate the position of the State Central Committee as Lt. Governor Tate Reeves, House Speaker Philip Gunn and I continue to resist efforts by the Democrats to expand the largest entitlement program in this state’s history,” said Governor Phil Bryant.

“Our party is unified and supports the prudent and careful approach advocated by the Governor, Lieutenant Governor and Speaker. At a time when we learn more every day about improper government intrusion into the lives of ordinary citizens, it defies logic to embrace an expansion of that intrusion,” said MSGOP Chairman Joe Nosef.
