NESHOBA COUNTY, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

The Neshoba County Fair is known as the state's giant house party. That party breaks for a different kind of attraction for two days every year.

Mississippi politics have some deep roots at the Neshoba County Fair. 

Some of these folks in Founders Square are still talking about political speeches that happened decades ago. But some of that focus shifted to what the Senate candidates will say on Thursday.

It's set to be the first time for Travis Childers and Thad Cochran to be in the same location.

"A lot of people wondering if Senator Cochran would actually show up," admitted fairgoer Chuck Lewis.

The other dynamic folks are chatting about as they porch sit and gossip is whether Chris McDaniel supporters will show up.

Travis Childers is scheduled to speak at 10:20, followed by Thad Cochran at 10:30, and Governor Bryant after that.
