On Thursday, Donald Trump became the first former president convicted of felony crimes as a New York jury found him guilty on 34 counts of falsifying business records in a scheme to illegally influence the 2016 election through hush money payments to porn actress Stormy Daniels.

As Americans across the country are forming opinions on the historic verdict, so are Mississippi’s elected officials. Below is a running list of responses from state leaders.

Gov. Tate Reeves

U.S. Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith

U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker

U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson

U.S. Rep. Michael Guest

U.S. Rep. Trent Kelly

U.S. Rep. Mike Ezell

Lt. Gov. Delbert Hosemann

Secretary of State Michael Watson

State Auditor Shad White

Treasurer David McRae

State Sen. Brice Wiggins (District 52)

State Sen. Jeremy England (District 51)

State Sen. Bradford Blackmon (District 21)

While Trump is scheduled to be sentenced on July 11, the Republican told the media as he exited the courthouse to expect an appeal. He also added that he plans to remain in this year’s presidential race as he looks to be elected to a second term after losing to current President Joe Biden in 2020.
