MPE issued a ten-question candidate questionnaire to the leading candidates in the races for Governor and Lt. Governor. The questionnaire covers a range of policy issues including funding, the teacher shortage, testing, and Mississippi’s “brain drain.” We have posted gubernatorial candidates' responses, as well as lieutenant governor candidates' responses, in the “Quick Links” section of our homepage at www.mpe.org. (NOTE: Although Tate Reeves submitted his responses more than 2 hours after our deadline, we have included them for our members' reference in making informed decisions.)
