The new fund will go toward making improvements to the Mississippi Republican Party headquarters buildings.
Governor Tate Reeves and the Mississippi Republican Party today announced the chairmen of the newly created MSGOP Lott-Cochran Statesmen Hall Fund.
“The Mississippi Republican Party is on the front lines defending our state from radical leftists, canceling socialist economic policies and culture,” said Gov. Tate Reeves. “They are our boots on the ground and we must support their base of operations. I encourage you to help keep Mississippi red by donating. “
Former US Senator Trent Lott and former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour have been named Inaugural Presidents of the Fund.
“We are delighted to announce this new fund that will allow us to make necessary improvements to our Party headquarters,” said Frank Bordeaux, chairman of the Mississippi Republican Party. “MSGOP has made incredible progress over the past four decades at the local, state and federal levels. This new fund gives us the opportunity for the party to have a central office that all Mississippi Republicans can be proud of and call home. “
The funds will go towards improvements to the Lott-Cochran Statesmen Hall, which has served as the headquarters of the Mississippi Republican Party since 1991. The building was named after Senator Trent Lott and Senator Thad Cochran in 2000.
“I am honored to have the opportunity to give back to the party that I have called my own since the beginning of my political career,” Lott said. “The MSGOP deserves a venue that reflects the success they have experienced over the past years. I look forward to working with Governor Barbour to restore the Lott-Cochran Statesmen Hall and protect the integrity of this historic site. “
“I am excited to get down to business improving and renovating the Mississippi Republican Party headquarters. While MSGOP has seen tremendous growth in recent decades, only limited resources have been devoted to maintaining our headquarters building. I am confident that Senator Lott, the President of Bordeaux and I will be able to make significant progress in restoring our Party headquarters, ”said Barbour.
Founded in 1956, the Mississippi Republican Party works to elect Conservatives to local, state and federal offices. The MSGOP believes in preserving individual freedoms, resisting the overreach of major government intervention, protecting the rights of citizens outlined in our country’s founding documents, and increasing prosperity for all the inhabitants of Mississippi.
