Americans for Tax Reform recognizes the Mississippi incumbents and candidates who have taken the Taxpayer Protection Pledge ahead of the August 6 primary election. The Pledge is a written commitment to hardworking Mississippi taxpayers and to the American people to “oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes.”

“By signing The Pledge to the voters, these candidates and incumbents demonstrate that they will safeguard Mississippi taxpayers from higher taxes,” said Grover Norquist, President of Americans for Tax Reform. “Pledge signers understand that government should be reformed in a way so that it spends and takes less taxpayer dollars, and will oppose tax increases that prolong failures of the past.”

ATR will be updating this list daily, as we approach the August 6 primary. Candidates can still make this important commitment to voters today by visiting: www.atr.org/take-the-pledge
