State GOP Chairman confirms seven Democrats switching parties
Statewide radio host Paul Gallo has mentioned once or twice this week that there was a possibility a handful of Mississippi Democrats were on the verge of becoming Republicans.
Mississippi Republican Party Chairman Brad White just confirmed it to Magnolia Marketplace. Seven current Democrats, White said, will be former Democrats Thursday morning. White did not provide names.
“Some are from multi-county districts and some are from the local level,” White said.
A press conference is scheduled for 11 a.m. Thursday at the Mississippi GOP headquarters, located at the corner of Yazoo and Congress streets in Jackson.
Magnolia Marketplace will be there and will have the particulars as soon as it’s over.
