GOP leadership to welcome party-switcher
The Mississippi Republican Party just announced that it will welcome a new member into the fold Wednesday afternoon at a press conference at the GOP building on Congress Street in Jackson.
The press release doesn’t say who it is, but did say it’s a Democratic state official, which means it’s most likely a member of the Legislature. Gov. Haley Barbour will be there, as will state GOP Chairman Brad White.
Magnolia Marketplace will be there at 1 p.m., and we’ll have the ins and outs shortly thereafter, so be ready.
