The 13th Annual Hobnob Mississippi will be held on Wednesday, October 29 from 8:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.
Held at the Mississippi Coliseum at the State Fairgrounds in Jackson, Hobnob Mississippi is a fun political rally-styled event that features Mississippi’s statewide elected officials and candidates for statewide office.
The event this year will be held inside due to the threat of rain.
U.S. Senator Thad Cochran, the Republican nominee, and his Democratic challenger Travis Childers will speak during Hobnob, which takes place less than one week before the general election.
Governor Phil Bryant, Lt. Governor Tate Reeves, and Speaker of the House Philip Gunn will provide the latest on what’s happening at the State Capitol. Other statewide elected officials set to speak are Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, Attorney General Jim Hood, State Auditor Stacey Pickering, State Treasurer Lynn Fitch, Agriculture Commissioner Cindy Hyde-Smith and Insurance Commissioner Mike Chaney.
