State GOP chairman Nosef speaks to Lamar County Republicans

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Mississippi Republican Party Chairman Joe Nosef was in Lamar County Tuesday night, speaking about the party's upcoming caucuses and county conventions.

He spoke to the Lamar County Republican Club at the Midway Community Center.

On Saturday morning, republicans statewide will host county caucuses and in the afternoon, they will host county conventions. Those elected will go on to the state convention.

"I'm the chairman of the party, but our popular governor is seen as the leader of our party and we just hope people will come out and support him this weekend and support our local leaders as well, so we can not only have a good, strong party for this presidential election, but for the next four years," Nosef said.

The GOP's National Convention will be held in Cleveland in July.
