Trump Swoops In To Rally For Embattled Senate Republican

  • Tuesday's winner will serve the last two years of retired Senator Thad Cochran's six-year term

But on Monday, he painted Democrats as radical and risky as he stumped for Republican Sen.

Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith, a white former state lawmaker who was appointed to the seat in April, is still favored over black Democrat Mike Espy in the reliably Republican state, which has not sent a Democrat to the U.S. Senate since 1982.

Trump said Monday at a campaign rally in MS that he is sending the caravan members a clear message: "Turn around and go back home".

"I think the media hyped it up as much as they could", said King, who said he voted for Hyde-Smith. They say surveys have consistently shown her with a lead ranging from the mid-single digits to the low double digits. Hyde-Smith said the comment had been twisted and turned into "a political weapon used for nothing but personal and political gain by my opponent".

President Donald Trump urged Mississippi Republicans to turn out for Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith, who was expected to cruise to victory in Tuesday's runoff election before a series of racial issues complicated her campaign.

Trump is scheduled to hold a second rally later Monday in Biloxi, Mississippi. Tuesday's victor will serve the last two of Cochran's six-year term. Thad Cochran's six-year term.

President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence launched a rescue mission in MS for a Republican candidate on the eve of a run-off election for the US Senate, with Democrats hoping to win a seat in the state for the first time since 1982.

Michael King, 71, who was voting Tuesday, said he believed that criticism of Hyde-Smith was purely political, as people were "grabbing something to make her look bad at the last moment".

Investigators say two nooses found outside the Mississippi Capitol were accompanied by handwritten signs referring to the state's history of lynchings and to a U.S. Senate election.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal , Trump said he's not afraid to slap duties on consumer goods like iPhones. Trump on several occasions has suggested that Apple should bring iPhone manufacturing to the U.S. "They haven't been.

"If Espy wins that race, it represents a huge breakthrough for America", said the Reverend Jesse Jackson, a longtime civil rights activist and former Democratic presidential candidate.

The result of Tuesday's run-off will determine whether Republicans widen their control of the US Senate to 53 to 47 seats when the new Congress takes office early next year. The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) website says that between 1882 and 1968, there were 4,743 lynchings in the United States, and that almost 73 percent of the victims were black.

"Well, I know her and I know she apologized, and she misspoke", Trump told reporters on Moday at the White House, according to Politico.

Trump called her "a truly incredible leader and tireless champion" for Mississippi. He spent far more time than usual pleading for votes for Hyde-Smith, in contrast to his rallies before the November 6 vote, when he generally focused his praise on himself and sometimes ignored the candidates he was supposedly promoting.

Such donations have come under fire due to Hyde-Smith's recent comments and actions making jokes out of lynchings and glorifying Confederate history. However, in our sample we do not see strong signs of such a lopsided turnout in Espy's favor.

She also urged voters to disregard polls showing Republican Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith leading by as many as 10 percentage points, pointing to her upset primary win against outgoing Representative Michael Capuano.

GULFPORT, MISS-Republicans in MS may not be in love with Cindy Hyde-Smith, who was appointed to the Senate earlier this year after longtime Sen.

"I've never really hard anything about Mike Espy", said 19-year-old Marjorie Lam, a biology student at the community college.
