While Hood Raises $1 Million

The Jim Hood for Governor Campaign issued the following statement.

Attorney General Jim Hood's campaign for governor had cash-on-hand of $1,044,231.71 going into 2019, according to his 2018 year-end campaign finance report filed today with the Mississippi Secretary of State.

Hood, who kicked off his campaign for governor on Oct. 3, raised $716,000 in 2018 -- with 87.7 percent of those donations coming from Mississippians.

"I'm proud of the support we have received from a cross-section of Mississippians who want a governor who listens to and cares about their needs," said General Hood. "Our campaign is about putting Mississippi families first. It's about Mississippi families who want great schools; safe roads and bridges; quality healthcare; and a governor who is always approachable and in tune to the challenges we face together as a state."

In contrast, Hood's leading opponent, Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves, has essentially been running for governor every day for the past seven years, spending his time on raising millions of dollars at the expense of crumbling roads and failing bridges; underfunded schools; and rural hospitals forced to close their doors due to a lack of funding.

Hood's 87.7 percent of in-state donations show that Mississippians are fueling his campaign. Additionally, 60 percent of the total number of donations received were in amounts of $200 and under, reflecting the kind of grassroots effort that Hood is running in his race for governor.

Already in 2019, the Hood campaign has seen a spike in smaller contributions from the kinds of Mississippians who know that Jim Hood is conscious of the struggles of working-class families.

"We are excited to have a campaign based on standing up for families -- not powerful special interests," said General Hood. "Together, we can build a better Mississippi that works for everyone."

Will fellow Dems Bennie, Kamala, Nancy, Ocasio, Shumer, Barrack et al be fund raising for him ?....you bet your ass they will.

Tate would hands down win a Mississippi "Most Unlikable Person" contest. He listens to those female bimbos too much.

6:27 PM, we already are dead last, Tater will for sure reserve us that position for the next four (or eight) years.

It's not going to take much to beat Tater, he has to survive the primary too.

This number ain’t going to cut it for Jim. He had to raise at least $1m

Oh yeah. Tate has lost a lot of ground. I'm all for Hood.

Spoke to Gregg Harper at the Ole Miss sports talk this week in Jackson.

Tate will have some opposition.

While not supporting him in any way -- except perhaps on a low carb regime -- I quit underestimating Jim Hood years ago. I expect he will be governor. He is a political adept of uncanny skill -- who knows, perhaps he will be a good one.

The greatest one we ever had -- Haley the Yazoo Pig Boy -- was also a disgusting morbidly obese tub of inarticulate guts BUT he was a great governor AND I would support him for POTUSA.

One big difference between Pig Boy and Jim Hood is that Governor Barbour is smart -- which just means he found more ways to enrich himself at the public trough. Brains don't matter none running the Magnolia State.

I am reminded of Caesar's aside in Act 1, Scene 2

Let me have men about me that are fat,
Sleek-headed men and such as sleep a-nights.

If he has any of these folks appear with him, speak on his behalf or be connected to him thru fundraising he’s too stupid to be Governor....

Where does your boy Jim stand on his party's pet issues such as socialized healthcare, ultra late term abortion, free college, open borders, gun control etc etc etc ? If he's not aligned with them then why is he a Democrat ? You can take this Trojan Horse somewhere else, it's not going to work here.

Hillary outspent Trump almost 6 to 1 and how'd that turn out? Tate is Hillary...the candidate that most Rs publicly loves but privately do not like...and just like Hillary, he feels entitled to win. Voters for Trump wouldn't admit they were voting for him in polls but on election day...BOOM GOES THE DYNAMITE!

When that voting booth curtain closes in November, Tate should be very worried.

I would vote for the antichrist before ever voting democrat.

Also, there are plenty of Republicans that suck, but the socialist agenda will never get my support.

"I would vote for the antichrist before ever voting democrat."

Chances are the antichrist would be a Republican anyway.

7:53, difference is people in MS ain’t voting for a Democrat. Not after Pelosi’s antics over these next few months, and their presidential candidates out doing one another to see who can be most extreme on televised debates right in the middle of this race.

Jim's fellow Democratic socialist slime balls won't be in Mississippi raising money for him genius. They will be in Hollywood and various other shit holes raising money for the numerous Democratic PACs that will funnel money to our home grown socialist.

It will take more than being pro-choice. Hood will have to condemn the infanticide legislation being passed and signed in other states controlled by the Democrat Party.

Anonymous said...

Isn't Hood the guy who sued companies that still do business with the state, wrongly accused them of being involved with Epps, and then demanded a ransom payment to keep doing business here? Is he the one that refused to join attorneys general from other conservative states to oppose Obamacare? Is Hood the one who associates himself with a party pushing for late-term abortion and medicare for all?

No thanks.

Tater's Social Media Troll Response Team is really good.

Something positive about Hood or negative about T is posted and their pre-approved responses are quickly posted. They should be extremely busy over the 9 months. Guess that's where most of T's money is going.

Anonymous said...

741... other than being a democrat show where Hood has support any of those pet topics. That being said so you unequivocally support every single republican idea and denounce every single democratic idea.. not much of a free thinker. You question also suggests that you don’t know where good stands

Anonymous said...

Looks like Jim Hood's minion is staying busy on this blog bashing Reeves and hopelessly trying to defend his liberal boss. Geez. Hope the public resources of the AG's office are not being wasted on this, too.

1146 you sound like a democrat , where’s the proof

Anonymous said...

You dumbasses crack me up. Do you really believe the things you type? Your ideas about what mainstream Democrats believe is so far from reality that it's hard to believe you're not hallucinating. Infanticide? Open borders? Haha, what a bunch of idiots. No wonder Mississippi is dead last in everything with yahoos like you in charge.

Just this week Pelosi explained that the strength of the Democratic party was unity. I believe she was speaking about the border wall and NOT ONE Dem speaking up for the exact wall that they all had supported just a couple of years ago. Is Pelosi "mainstream" if not please give us an example of a "mainstream" Democrat.

Anonymous said...

@3:12

True, some Dems like Schumer supported a border wall in the past. Funny though how for 2 years the Republican majority Congress resisted spending money on Trump's wall. Only now are they in lockstep with tRump. Where was that GOP unity when it was needed?

Anonymous said...

@4:08

You just made my point. The Republicans tend to think as individuals while Dems group think...just like Jim Hood would.

Anonymous said...

5:56 that’s the issue I have with republicans. They think and act independently but can never come together on anything. Remember John McCIns thumbs down. He was no.better than Pelosi.

Hilarious that Trump loving Republicans are calling on Democrats to be consistent. Hypocrites.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
