Missisippians may see all three of the current presidential hopefuls visit the state this month.
Democratic presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have been invited as keynote speakers for the Mississippi Democratic Party’s 26th Annual Jefferson Jackson Hamer Day Dinner this Thursday.
The dinner will be held at the Canton Mutipurpose & Equine Center, at 7:30 p.m., just five days before Mississippi’s presidential preference primary on March 11.
Tickets for the dinner are $125 each or $1,000 for a table of eight. For tickets of more information call the Mississippi Democratic Party headquarters at (601) 969-2913 or visit the party’s Web site at www.msdemocrats.net.
The Jefferson Jackson Hamer Day Dinner is named in honor of former Presidents Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson and civil rights leader Fannie Lou Hamer.
Republican presidential candidate John McCain may make a campaign stop at Naval Air Station Meridian on March 31, according to his campaign representatives.
However, the stop is not set in stone, said a member of his press office. "Nothing in the schedule is set in stone more than 48 hours ahead," the representative in McCain's press office said.
McCain is touring places that have played a role in his life and making campaign stops along the way. He received flight training at NAS Meridian.
