Billy Hewes “Back Then”

July 29, 2011

Besides his first ad with the minivan we would say this is the best ad we have seen from Billy.

Even though it’s almost all still pictures and we usually hate these kinds of ads.

The message brings this one through.

Phony “Log Cabin Republican” Endorsement letter floating around in Mississippi

July 27, 2011

***UPDATE*** This letter is absolutely fake

This was just emailed in and it looks bogus.  I doubt the Log Cabin Republicans are getting involved in the Mississippi Republican Primaries. Smells like someone is up to some dirty tricks.  The letter is not mentioned on their website: LOG CABIN REPUBLICANS

And the signature and the name of the executive director do not match.

We don’t appreciate this kind of dirty, nasty, underhanded politics so we are here to call this out, that’s why blogging can be a force for good.  If this letter is in fact fake and if anyone else received this please let us know.

Bad Tate, Bad, Bad Tate

June 25, 2011

This new ad from Billy Hewes has us totally entertained, I am not sure if you can even call it a negative ad when there is a chihuahua in it.  Anyway the production value looks really good and the message,  although Tate Reeves probably does not like it will probably be somewhat effective.

Regardless of our feelings about this race we love ads and we REALLY LOVE attack ads.

Positive ads are so boring most of the time.

Political silly season just started.

We won / They won / Mississippi Won on Redistricting

May 17, 2011

The ink is barely dry on the 3 judge panel decision and there is already a back and forth on who won (Democrats of Republicans) over here at ROM we say that all of Mississippi won because right or wrong our Constitution stood strong and carried the day, the citizen legislators of Mississippi will have to come to a compromise on new districts and the courts and justice department will not be drawing our lines.

Congrats to all on the winning side.

Kingfish Claims Victory for Delbert Hosemann

STATEMENT OF TREASURER TATE REEVES

ON TODAY’S REDISTRICTING RULING

 

May 16, 2011

“The court made the proper ruling today and followed the Mississippi Constitution, which calls for redistricting to occur the year after census data is released.  I applaud and congratulate Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann for his successful advocacy of the correct outcome in this matter.  Today’s ruling is a victory for local election officials and voters who won’t have to be rushed into contending with new maps and district lines this year, only to have them change again next year.”

We all win.

Tate Reeves: Mississippi King of Campaign Cash 2011

May 12, 2011

Yep, that’s State Treasurer Tate Reeves who has apparently been making his fund-raising calls and it has paid off.

April 30 Report

$724,126.52 in the door this period

$2,100,473.21 CASH ON HAND

Seriously folks this is a candidate on a mission.

His opponent obviously worked had and has 1,169,744.00 but I cannot think of another candidate off had that has been outspent by a million dollars and won a primary in MS political history.

(if I am wrong please remind me)

If team Tate (Justin Brasell) spends their money wisely this race is over.

BUT,

A million dollars goes a long way in Mississippi, we could still have a race but I suspect Reeves is out front and doubt that Hewes can catch him.

Currently Handicapping this race at 75/25 Reeves
