Former Sen. Trent Lott (R) will be the honorary host at a fundraising reception tonight to benefit the 3rd district Congressional campaign of Rankin County Republican Party Chairman Gregg Harper (R), according to an invitation that was circulated to supporters last week.

Harper is one of eight men competing in the GOP primary for the seat held by retiring Rep. Chip Pickering (R).

According to the invitation, Harper’s $500- a-ticket reception is being held at the Jackson home of Billy Mounger, a well-known and well-connected financial supporter of Mississippi Republicans.

As one of the most popular Republicans in the state, Lott’s support for Harper in the battle for funds is sure to be noticed in a tight primary contest where Harper is battling three other GOP frontrunners.
