Haley Barbour to Headline State Republican Dinner

The state Republican Party just sent out a Save the Date — no longer just for weddings — announcing Haley Barbour as the headliner for its September 14 dinner.

Barbour has deep fundraising ties in the city, due to his work with the Republican National Committee and, more recently, the Republican Governors Association.

Despite a very brief presidential run earlier this year, Barbour remains a Republican star and should help state chairman Ed Cox raise some money at the annual dinner. It’s a reprise role for Barbour, who headlined last year along with Donald Trump.

The email said more details are to follow.
