Mississippi Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann will not speak at the Neshoba County Fair this year, officials said Monday, citing a prior commitment.
Fair Association board member Scott Bounds, one of three committee members setting up the political speaking, said Hosemann would be out of town because of a family event.
“Right now he will be out of town both days [Wednesday and Thursday],” Bounds said. “If that changes we will work him in.”
Hosemann’s absence is not the only news to come out of the Fair speaking schedule.
