One of the nation’s highest-ranking Republicans traveled to Mississippi to whip up fundraising efforts.
US House Majority Whip, Steve Scalise (R-LA) is in Jackson to headline a luncheon to benefit the Mississippi Republican Party’s United Republican Fund.
The whip is the person responsible for ensuring party unity on key votes, in this case for the majority party in control.
Some may remember Scalise as the member who was critically injured by a shooter during a congressional baseball team practice in Virginia.
Scalise serves Louisiana’s First Congressional District.
The event is being held at the Hilton on County Line Road.
