State Rep. Jason White Joins Republican Party

JACKSON- Today, the Mississippi Republican Party welcomed Representative Jason White of West to the Republican Party at a news conference held at the State Capitol. Mississippi Republican Party Chairman Joe Nosef and several Republican elected officials were in attendance for the announcement including Gov. Phil Bryant, Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves, Speaker Philip Gunn, Secretary Delbert Hosemann, Auditor Stacey Pickering, and members of the state legislature.

“I would like to welcome Rep. Jason White to the Republican Party,” Mississippi Republican Party Chairman Joe Nosef said. “In Mississippi you have a choice – you can either be a conservative or a Democrat – but you can’t be both anymore. Since his election, Rep. White has been a strong conservative voice in the state legislature.”

With this switch, White becomes the 65th Republican member of the House of Representatives.

“While Washington slides further to the left, Mississippians remain true to the conservative values and free market principles that have made America great,” Gov. Bryant said. “Jason’s switch to the Republican Party is just one more example of how the national Democratic Party is out of touch with the citizens of this state.”

“We are proud to have Jason White in our ranks,” Speaker Gunn said. “The truth about Jason is that his voting record will not change this coming session. He remains consistent in his philosophy, and I know he will continue to do great things for Mississippi.”

“I am a conservative; I’ve never hidden that fact,” Rep. White said. “I don’t hide my conservative views now, and I didn’t hide them when I ran in 2011. I look forward to continuing my work in the House as a Republican.”

White was first elected in 2011 and serves as the Vice-Chairman of the Constitution committee in the House.
