A new group formed by local Republicans holds its first meeting Thursday with guest speaker Henry Ross, a candidate for the first congressional district. The meeting to be held at 7 p.m. on Thursday in Courtroom 1 of the Lafayette County Chancery Building is open to the public and anyone interested in joining the new Lafayette County Republican Group.
The group plans to bring the other Republican candidates for the upcoming congressional district race in for a discussion in April. Angela McGlowan, Fox news political analyst and author, is set for April 8, and State Sen. Alan Nunnelee, vice president of Allied Funeral Associates, is on April 29. A tentative event has been set for May 20 to host a discussion with all the candidates.
