Mississippi governor says he would sign bill to remove Confederate emblem from state flag – The Washington Post

” Earlier in the day, Gov. Tate Reeves (R), who had long firmly insisted citizens alone should decide whether to abandon the states flag, said for the first time Saturday that he would sign an expense on the problem if one is sent his way. “The argument over the 1894 flag has actually ended up being as divisive as the flag itself and its time to end it.” A dispute has raved this week over the state flag, the last in the country to feature the Confederate battle flag in its design.
