Star-Studded Fundraiser For Joey Fillingane
A number of prominent Republicans will serve as special guests at a fundraiser for Sen. Joey Fillingane next week in Hattiesburg. Among the headliners are Treasurer Tate Reeves, SoS Delbert Hosemann, Sens. Lydia Chassaniol, Billy Hudson and Merle Flowers, as well as MSGOP Chair Arnie Hederman. The event will also honor Rev. Ben James, the Senate chaplain.
As for Fillingane, he is one of the Republican Senators who would have been better off under the Burton map but he should still be fine as it will be pretty difficult finding many white voters willing to support a Democrat in that part of the state. Making it easier is the lack of opponent at this time.
