Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves has made The Washington Post's 40 Under 40, a list of people who have made names for themselves in politics outside of Washington.
It's great to see good news about a Mississippian and Reeves is in some pretty good company, including Julian Castro, who's about to make the great leap to D.C. as President Barack Obama's HUD secretary.
There's just one little quibble. The Post says:
"He was elected Mississippi state treasurer at age 28 and served two terms before becoming Gov. Phil Bryant’s (R) lieutenant governor after the 2010 election."
Never miss a local story.
I'm not sure I'd have put it that way -- Reeves strikes me as a pretty independent fellow.
