Trump campaigning for MS senator

Nooses found at Mississippi state Capitol one day before special election

The election became more competitive after a video emerged earlier this month of Ms Hyde-Smith telling a supporter: "If he invited me to a public hanging, I'd be on the front row".

Trump's defense of Hyde-Smith comes just as her father-in-law prepares to travel to MS and headline two separate rallies for the embattled Republican incumbent, who has lost funding and faced criticism for "public hanging" that's been widely considered racist. "On Tuesday, you can reject Espy's liberal policies by voting for Cindy Hyde-Smith - the Republican who stands strong for our conservative values", her campaign said Monday a statement.

Mr Espy is seeking to become the first African-American US senator from MS since Reconstruction.

Nevertheless she is expected to win in the staunchly Republican state. "We need someone who respects lives of lynching victims", one sign read.

A former GOP leader says Mississippi Republicans can not afford to stay home from today's U.S. Senate runoff election. "I just think she's the less of the two evils".

President Donald Trump, speaking tonight in front of a cheering crowd at the Coast Coliseum, urged MS residents to return Cindy Hyde-Smith to the U.S. Senate. In the initial election held on November 6, Hyde-Smith and another Republican garnered 58 percent of the vote, while Democratic candidates only got 42 percent.

Fortunately for the Bears, Nagy believes they didn't utilize everything they had in the game plan. Jernigan, 26, has not played this season after undergoing surgery for a herniated disk in May.

Students at the college had seen some of the attack ads against Hyde-Smith - but they couldn't say much about what Espy, a Secretary of Agriculture under President Clinton, stands for.

The contest has drawn comparisons to the Alabama Senate special election last December 2017, when Democrat Doug Jones won a narrow victory against Republican Roy Moore, who was accused by multiple women of sexually assaulting them when they were teenagers.

But so far, it appears that none of the controversy surrounding Ms Hyde-Smith will be enough to unseat her - most polls project victory for the Republican.

The donation to Hyde-Smith's campaign came after a lobbyist who works for Major League Baseball couldn't attend a mid-November fundraiser for Sen.
