News

State Representative Robert Foster endorsed Bill Waller, Jr. in the GOP runoff for Governor.

Foster represents the Republican stronghold of Desoto County, a key county in the bid for November’s general election against Democratic nominee Jim Hood.

The first-term state representative underscored his support by holding a news conference first in his hometown of Hernando Tuesday morning and again in Jackson.

Foster said Waller represents more than ‘politics as usual’. He said integrity and character matter a great deal to him and he believes Waller will bring those qualities to the governor’s office.

Tate Reeves and Bill Waller will join 12 News for a runoff debate on Wednesday, August 21 at 7:00 p.m. The debate will air statewide.
