Considering how many years Democrats have spent running the state of Mississippi, we’re not sure this take from CNN commentator, Keith Boykin, was a good one.
Mississippi has had:
• Republicans senators for 30 years
• Republican governors for 14 years
And yet Mississippi has the:
• highest poverty rate
• highest infant mortality rate
• 3rd highest unemployment rate
• 3rd highest incarceration rate
• 5th highest uninsured rate pic.twitter.com/ox7FSznpmT

We get what he’s trying to do here, to pretend that somehow Republicans and their evil policies of cutting taxes and putting people back to work have ruined the state but the reality is the GOP only very recently took over the ‘governance’ of Mississippi.
Unless you think the roots of Mississippi poverty are all of 14 years old, this is a baaaaaad point. GOP governance of MS is very recent. https://t.co/Sjr2dcLMTH

You know what would be a good thing to use here – where Mississippi ranked prior to the GOP taking charge.
Odd you didn't include that.

We know we know!
Legislature wasn't Republican until 2012. And it's unclear how those problems which have plagued MS for a century (thanks Democrats) were supposed to be fixed in a decade.

Still recovering from 150 years of Democrat rule.

And most of those bad outcomes are among Mississippi’s Democrats.

Dunked with PolitiFact … THE HORROR!
Oh, and guess which party has been ‘running’ California.
Nice try, Keith but NO.
