Hood conceded around 10:30 p.m. local time, the Clarion Ledger reported.

"We've run a good race. I appreciate your support, and we've had fun," Hood said.

According to Business Insider, this is the first competitive gubernatorial race Mississippi has seen in a decade. 

Reeves will now be the state's third Republican governor in a row. In the last 25 years, Democrats have only had the governor's seat for four of those years, The Hill reported.

President Donald Trump and Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel congratulated Reeves on his victory:

Mississippi's current governor, Phil Bryant, also congratulated the current Lt. Gov.
