Fundraiser attracts attention

The Mississippi Democratic Party fundraiser in Clarksdale on Wednesday, Sept. 13, was a success, attracted more than 200 people and made it in the Clarksdale Press Register.
That shouldn't come as much of a surprise, though.
After all, the event at the Ground Zero Blues Club in historic downtown Clarksdale attracted Attorney General Jim Hood, Secretary of State Eric Clark, party Chairman Wayne Dowdy and former Govs. William Winter and Ronnie Musgrove.
The big draw was award-winning actor, and co-owner of the club, Morgan Freeman -- who spent much of the night talking and taking pictures with attendees.

The Clarksdale Press Register ran several of its own photos from the event. If you can't find a copy of the Thursday edition, however, you can read the story online by clicking here.
