JACKSON, Miss. (WTVA) - Alabama U.S. Senator Doug Jones will speak to Mississippi Democrats next Saturday.

Jones will be the keynote speaker for the party's Hamer-Winter Dinner at the Brandon Municipal Complex in suburban Jackson.

The dinner is a fundraiser for the Mississippi Democratic Party.  General admission tickets are going for $40 each and reserved tables for $500 each.

The former federal prosecutor is a popular figure right now in the Democratic Party by winning last month's special election in a state that generally favors Republicans.
