Trump campaigning for MS senator

Trump campaigning for MS senator

MS is preparing for a Tuesday Senate runoff between Republican Sen.

"Let us all respond to these despicable acts by voting, working, raising our families, practicing our faith, and pursuing the American dream here in our great state without fear or trepidation and in harmony with our fellow citizens", Hurst said.

Looking to bolster its Senate majority, the GOP wheeled out its biggest gun Monday in MS as President Trump rallied to bolster Sen.

At stake is whether the GOP will hold 52 or 53 seats in the Senate. The last Democrat Mississippians sent to the Senate was ardent segregationist John Stennis in 1982 for the last term of his four-decade career.

"Please vote tomorrow", he said.

The RNC has been paying close attention to the race and Hyde-Smith has launched a get out the vote effort. If elected, Espy would be the first black person elected to the Senate from the state since the era of Reconstruction.

While Mississippi is a solidly Republican state, special elections are notoriously hard to predict as they tend to have low turnout. "This is all going to be turnout. But I think it's actually on the cusp of being really competitive and I'd be stunned if Espy were to win". The question is: "will hers?"

She apologized 'to anyone that was offended'.

"Cindy is so important, so respected". "This election's about judges, jobs, borders, protecting opportunities for our children".

"She's a Republican, I guess", said Jerry Smith, a grandfather and longtime MS resident.

In a television ad, Espy's campaign urged voters to reject a candidate it argues would give MS a bad image.

"We can't afford a senator who embarrasses us and reinforces the stereotypes we've worked so hard to overcome", one ad for the Democrat said.

She said the hanging remark was an "exaggerated expression of regard" for the supporter, but the remarks drew sharp criticism in a state with a 38% black population. "The Roy Moore case was exceptional and had all these continuing allegations of sexual impropriety".

Bryant commented earlier on Hyde-Smith's remarks by saying that the real issue was how abortion was creating a Black genocide. Cindy Hyde-Smith, R-Miss., at Tupelo Regional Airport, Monday, Nov. 26, 2018, in Tupelo, Miss.

The troubling discovery comes the day before a runoff election between Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith and Democrat Mike Espy is set to take place. Espy's criminal indictments while agriculture secretary, for which he was acquitted at trial, and his lucrative work as a lobbyist for a former president of the Ivory Coast in western Africa now on trial in the Hague for alleged crimes against humanity. "Mike Espy is the clear choice when it comes to showing the nation who MS really is".
