With the final senate race happening on Tuesday, campaigning is crucial for Mississippi Senate candidates.
Cindy Hyde-Smith, the Republican Mississippi senator who made comments condoning "public hangings", attended a "segregated" school when she was younger, the Jackson Free Press reported Friday after unearthing a 1975 yearbook photo.
Illinois Cox Littleton, 92, of Jackson, Miss., seated, went to the Hinds County Courthouse in Jackson on Saturday, Nov. 24, 2018, to cast an absentee ballot in a U.S. Senate runoff election.
The runoff between Hyde-Smith and Espy has drawn comparisons to last year's special election in which Democrat Doug Jones defeated the scandal-plagued Republican Roy Moore to fill Jeff Sessions' vacated seat.
But Trump said that he will be doing two rallies for Hyde-Smith and her praised her in a tweet on Sunday.
"Here's what you're not going to get from me: You're not going to hear any talk about voter suppression". Littleton, a retired home economics teacher, says she voted for Democrat Mike Espy because she considers him "a highly intelligent man".
Espy was introduced by Ayanna Pressley, a Massachusetts Democrat who will join Congress next year after unseating an incumbent in the primary.
Major League Baseball wants the campaign of Sen. Doug Jones of Alabama told MS voters that Espy could help bridge partisan divides.
She has a history of controversial conduct, the most recent from a campaign rally earlier this month where she was seen on video joking with a supporter about happily being his guest for a public hanging. Even on trade and tariffs, where Trump's decisions could hurt MS farmers, Hyde-Smith praised the president. Hyde-Smith was sworn into office in April after her appointment by Gov. Phil Bryant. Then, they fly to the Gulf Coast for a later rally in Biloxi. "Mississippi, Vote for @cindyhydesmith on Tuesday". Respected by all. We need her in Washington!
While Hyde-Smith has taken a brazenly conservative stance on most issues, Espy has also played up his willingness to work with conservatives, and hasn't promoted some of the more left-leaning policies of his party, such as open borders and Medicare for all.
Some of the same people who worked on Jones' campaign in 2017 in Alabama are now working on Espy's.
He claimed Espy would "vote in total lockstep" with Sen.
Iowa's Ernst, meanwhile, emphasized themes including low taxes, a strong economy, higher military spending and stopping migrants from entering the country illegally. "I think not", said a fan. Espy vows to bring his experience of "diversity" and "inclusion" to the job, qualities he says are lacking in his white Republican opponent.
Hyde-Smith said the "public hanging" comment was "an exaggerated expression of regard" for a fellow cattle rancher.
"When you apologize to someone, look them in the eye", Espy said.
The race is expected to drive a higher-than-usual turnout for a runoff in Mississippi.
Trump had likened the approaching caravans to an "invasion" in the days leading up to the November 6 midterm elections, but critics accused him of exaggerating the threat in order to motivate his base to turn out and vote.
