Mississippi Republican Party Announces New Executive Director

JACKSON- Mississippi Republican Party Chairman Joe Nosef announced today that the Party has hired a new Executive Director, Brandon Payne.

“Having an effective Executive Director is critical to making sure the Mississippi Republican Party can defend and expand our new majority in the future,” Mississippi Republican Party Chairman Joe Nosef said. “Brandon is the ideal person to fill this role, and I am excited about having him work on strengthening our Party organizations in every part of the state.”

Payne, a Coast native, most recently worked as the Southern District Field Representative for U.S. Senator Roger Wicker, responsible for the 18 southernmost counties in Mississippi.

“Brandon will be a great benefit to the Party, especially as we approach the most important presidential election of our lifetime,” Gov. Phil Bryant said. “Together we will work hard in continuing to build our Party and help our Republican ticket across the state this fall.”

“I’ve known Brandon for many years and he has always worked hard to help elect Republican candidates. He will bring a wealth of knowledge of grassroots campaigning and experience in winning elections to his new role. I know he will serve the Party well,” Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves said.

“Brandon has played a key role in my office,” Sen. Roger Wicker said.  “I know he will be a great benefit to the Mississippi Republican Party.  He is tireless, bringing experience and knowledge that will help our Party this fall and in the years ahead.”

“I am deeply honored and humbled to be asked to fill this important role in our State Republican Party,” Brandon Payne said. “Our Party has great victories to reflect on, yet we must always advance towards future challenges. Now is not the time to rest comfortably on our laurels. By focusing on our goals and remaining united, I’m confident our fight for conservative principles will succeed.”

Payne is also the president of the Harrison County Republican Club and a member of the Harrison County Republican Executive Committee. A former Biloxi Police Officer, Payne was appointed by Gov. Bryant to serve on the State’s 5 member Crime Stoppers Advisory Council. He has held various volunteer positions with a multitude of statewide and local political campaigns, and also served with many civic and charitable organizations.
