DESOTO COUNTY, Miss. (WTVA) — State Rep. Robert Foster is endorsing Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves in his bid to become Mississippi's next governor.

Foster, who finished third in the August 6 Republican primary, did not mention Reeves by name in his Twitter post Thursday when announcing the endorsement.

However, he did use the name of the Democratic nominee, Attorney General Jim Hood.

"I am a conservative Republican. Jim Hood has never been an option for me," Foster's tweet said.

Foster's endorsement is significant since he endorsed Bill Waller Jr. in the August 27 runoff for the party's nomination.
