Former President George W. Bush was in Jackson for a fundraiser for Republican U.S. Senator Roger Wicker.
The interstate and entrances to the Jackson International Airport were blocked off as the former President traveled through the capital city.
President Bush was in town for a private event in the Eastover neighborhood.
Friday night's donations will go to the Wicker campaign and two political action committees.
Senator Wicker is up for re-election in 2018.
