COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — A candidate for lieutenant governor is touring North Mississippi, gathering support for the November General Election.

Democrat Tim Johnson stopped in Columbus Wednesday afternoon to explain why he’s running for the state’s second highest job.

He took questions from residents, and emphasized his support for expanding Medicaid, making roads and bridges safe, and fully funding public schools.

Johnson says he wants to use his previous political experience at the local and state levels to improve education in Mississippi.

“I want to get us off the bottom, and I want to take my experience that I’ve learned, and apply that at the state level,” he said.

Johnson is running against Republican incumbent Tate Reeves.

He says he plans to ask Reeves this week if they can hold a debate soon.
