Trump plans third visit to Mississippi

Trump is scheduled to attend a private fundraiser Aug. 24 in the Jackson metropolitan area.

State GOP leaders said they hope Trump’s visit will be a strong sign that the party is working together to support their nominee…

…Sources said the plan is for Trump to do a private fundraiser of some size during the day, and there have been discussions about having a potentially larger event that was more open to non-donors.

Mississippi is not expected to be competitive this fall, but local Democrats are working to get Clinton to visit their state after former president Bill Clinton visited Fondren and Jackson State during the primary season..

…Clinton is expected to focus her efforts in bigger states.
