You see, yesterday, [Hood] and his friends were in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania while I was here in Philadelphia, Mississippi. He was working to make Hillary Clinton President while I was here working against Hillary Clinton.” Reeves criticized Hood’s positions on the state budget and religious liberty and said, “He sounds to me like he’s auditioning to be Hillary’s attorney general.” Read More
