Jonathon Tate Reeves (born June 5, 1974), known as Tate Reeves, is an American Republican politician. Reeves is the Governor-elect of Mississippi. He is the 32nd and current Lieutenant Governor of Mississippi since 2012.
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.
