Jonathon Tate Reeves (born June 5, 1974), known as Tate Reeves, is an American Republican politician. He is the 32nd and current Lieutenant Governor of Mississippi.

Reeves was earlier elected as Mississippi’s 33rd state treasurer on November 4, 2003 and re-elected to a second term in 2007. He is the first Republican to have been state treasurer in Mississippi history.[1]

After Senator Thad Cochran resigned in March 2018, news spread that Governor Phil Bryant would make Reeves Cochran's replacement.[2] Cindy Hyde-Smith was selected as Cochran's replacement on March 21, 2018.
