Candidates’ representatives come to area

Mississippi campaign chairmen/directors for many of the Republican presidential campaigns will be in Brookhaven tonight for a free event at Ole Towne Church during which they will talk about the candidates’ platforms and answer questions.

The speakers will begin at 5:30 p.m. and a reception with light hors d’oeuvers will follow. The event will also serve as a membership drive for the Lincoln County Republican Women’s Club. The event, held at Ole Towne Church at 220 South Jackson St., is to end at 8 p.m.

The campaign representatives are speaking at a pivotal time as the Mississippi presidential preference primary election is to be held Tuesday, March 8. The results of the election will determine how Mississippi delegates cast their votes at the Republican National Convention in July.

Seating is limited, those wishing to attend must register in advance for free tickets through Eventbrite.com or email lcrwms@gmail.com. Cindy Moore, president of the Lincoln County Teen Age Republicans Club and an organizer of the event, said over 200 people have already signed up.

The event is sponsored by Supertalk Mississippi 102.1, Lincoln County Republican Women’s Club and the Lincoln County Republican Executive Committee.

The reception and campaign tables will be set up at the north side of Old Towne Church, where campaign representatives will also answer questions.
