There's a Republican gubernatorial primary runoff Tuesday in Mississippi. Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves and former Supreme Court Justice Bill Waller Jr. are on the ballot. The winner will face the Democratic nominee, Attorney General Jim Hood in November.
Polls close at 7:00 PM Central Time (8:00 PM Eastern). Results will appear below after that time.
Reeves was the most well-known and financed candidate heading into the August 6 three-way primary. He received the endorsement of the current governor, Phil Bryant, who is ineligible to run due to the state's two-term limit.
While he won the night, Reeves fell just short of a majority of the vote, necessitating Tuesday's top-two runoff. The third place finisher, state Rep. Robert Foster has endorsed Waller.
