None of the 1st Congressional District is in Neshoba County, but that isn’t stopping its U.S. House candidates from speaking at the famous fairgrounds near Philadelphia.
State Sen. Alan Nunnelee of Tupelo, the Republican nominee in the 1st District, will speak at the Neshoba County Fair on Wednesday afternoon. Nunnelee will be followed under the tin-roofed pavilion by five minor party candidates for the 1st District post, which covers much of north Mississippi.
With Congress still in session in Washington, Democratic incumbent Travis Childers is not scheduled to speak at the fair.
Congressional candidates from other districts also will appear during the annual two days of political speakings at Mississippi’s premier political event. Neshoba County is located in the 3rd District.
