President Trump was back on the campaign trail Monday, stumping in MS for Cindy Hyde-Smith, who is facing Mike Espy in a racially charged runoff for a US Senate seat. Thad Cochran stepped down.
Hyde-Smith, as you may recall, said during her support of friend and supporter Colin Hutchinson, "I would fight a circle saw for him".
MS voters are deciding a racially charged Senate election that has dredged up the Deep South state's ugly past. I'm voting for Smith.
Hyde-Smith is facing a runoff against Democrat Mike Espy after neither was able to get a majority of votes in the midterm election earlier this month.
Jonathan Winburn, a professor of US politics and public policy at the University of MS, said he expects the race to be "more competitive than the norm in MS", but said he's not convinced the Hyde-Smith controversy will be enough to deliver her the same fate as Moore.
For the past couple of days we've been talking about how Major League Baseball's PAC made a maximum donation to the campaign of U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith.
The matter was under investigation, he said, adding that he did not know what was on the signs.
"But like I said, neither one of them, I wish I had somebody else to vote for". "All the mud-slinging. I don't like mud-slinging and both of them are doing that". "That doesn't mean that we can't win here, it does mean we have to have a lot of things go right and if we do win it's going be by thousands of votes, not numbers of points".
Her campaign later said the comment was a joke and the video had been "selectively altered", the Washington Post reported. Whose judgement was it that a donation to her campaign, in that amount, at that particular time, made sense? Major League Baseball did not say why it gave money to Hyde-Smith.
Hyde-Smith has campaigned as an unwavering supporter of President Donald Trump, who campaigned with her on Monday, praising her at a rally in the northeastern MS city of Tupelo for voting to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.
"Well, I know her and I know she apologized, and she misspoke", Trump told reporters on Moday at the White House, according to Politico.
Nevertheless she is expected to win in the staunchly Republican state. It's the only outstanding Senate race of 2018, and will decide if Republicans have 53 seats in the chamber this January or face another upset in the Deep South.
Cillizza: It's Election Day in Mississippi. And sure enough, Tuesday's runoff election isn't on everyone's radar here. "You have an election tomorrow ... don't take any chances".
The president slammed Espy, saying he cared more about "illegal aliens" than the people of Mississippi.
"I've never really hard anything about Mike Espy", said 19-year-old Marjorie Lam, a biology student at the community college.
"So insensitive. So insensitive", she said at a McDonald's in Biloxi.
