JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) — Rep. Gregg Harper attended the Stennis Capitol Press Forum Monday.
Harper said a Trump administration is going to be very beneficial for the Magnolia state.
“You look to what was announced just in the last month that Raytheon if they are awarded the contract for the air force trainer, those will be built in Meridian, Mississippi,” he said.
The Republican said more ships could be built in Mississippi as well.
The forum was about different national issues that affect the Magnolia state and its residents.
