NESHOBA COUNTY, MS (WLOX) -

Donald Trump, Jr. came to Mississippi Tuesday visiting with voters at the Neshoba County Fair. He and Governor Phil Bryant spoke with members of the media about the Trump campaign's work in Mississippi, then stopped in at several cabins before addressing the crowd of supporters. 

Since appearing as one of the headline speakers at last week's Republican National Convention, Donald Trump Jr. has been on the road talking with voters and raising money for his father's campaign. According to media outlets in Texas, Trump Jr. and his wife were in Dallas yesterday for a fundraising lunch and roundtable discussion at an upscale hotel.

The scene in Neshoba County Tuesday was very different. Generations of Mississippi families gather each year in the sweltering summer heat for what's billed as Mississippi's giant house party. Trump Jr. talked about how his diet was going down the tubes because he's been eating so much on his visit. 

When asked for his thoughts on Mississippi's state flag being removed from the street display in Philadelphia, outside the Democratic National Convention this week, Trump said he stands with tradition and believes the flag should be allowed to fly.
