JACKSON, MS: A glittering fundraising event was held in Jackson, MS on July 16 for Governor Mitt Romney, the Republican candidate for the President of United States.
Governor Phil Bryant of Mississippi headed as State Campaign Chairman. Dr Sampat Shivangi, the only Indian American, served as Event Chair with others for Governor Mitt Romney’s fundraising event. Dr Shivangi is also a delegate at the upcoming RNC Convention in Tampa, FL to be held from Aug 25-30, to officially nominate Gov. Romney as Republican Candidate for Presidency.
A whopping $ 1.7 million were raised at this event which is one of the highest funds raised by a comparatively small state like Mississippi.
