McDaniel is a Republican candidate for the state’s Lieutenant Governor’s position. He is running in the Aug. 8 primary against incumbent Lt. Gov. Delbert Hosemann, also a Republican.

Food and fellowship begin at 5:30 p.m. The political program is from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

The event is free and will feature barbecue and burgers.

“We had a number of people ask would Chris be coming to Natchez for an event, and so we just decided to pull together a Rally for Republicans,” Sojourner said. “The official Republican Party here is not so strong. Lots of local candidates run as Democrats. So we pulled together the Republican officials and candidates and have put together a big family affair.

“There is a playground there if people want to bring their children. I have been out in Natchez making some stops at local businesses, inviting them to come. We hope people will come no matter what or who they support and meet Chris and ask him questions and make a decision on their own,” she said. “We invite everyone to come out and have a good meal and ask the candidate questions.”
