President Donald Trump has reiterated his support for Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith who continues to face the fallout over racially charged comments she made earlier this month.
Hyde-Smith spoke to Republican stalwarts at a Meridian museum Sunday afternoon supported by U.S. Sen.
Iowa's Ernst, meanwhile, emphasized themes including low taxes, a strong economy, higher military spending and stopping migrants from entering the country illegally. He was introduced by Ayanna Pressley, who will join Congress next year after unseating a Democratic incumbent in a primary. She was also captured on video making a joke about voter suppression, and photosposted to Facebook in 2014 show her with Confederate items and a caption reading, "Mississippi history at its best!"
"For anyone that was offended by my comments, I certainly apologize", she said.
"I have met with the president, and I proudly support him in negotiating these trades", she said.
He has to close the gap in a state where Trump received 58 percent in 2016 and that hasn't elected a Democrat to the U.S. Senate since 1982. Joni Ernst has been corrected in this item.
A Democrat running for U.S. Senate in MS says he would bring experience of "diversity" and "inclusion" to the job, and he thinks the Republican he's trying to unseat has a background lacking in those qualities.

USA oil continues to fall. When will the turnaround come?
In July, Trump called the organization a "monopoly", warning on Twitter that "gas prices are up & they are doing little to help". Prices may be oversold technically, but it's going to take a major change in the fundamentals to flip this market.

Hyde-Smith is the first woman to represent MS in Congress.

Tuesday's victor gets the final two years of a six-year term.
Hyde-Smith recently told a crowd at a campaign event that she would be in the "front row" of a "public hanging", if invited.
The Senate race is expected to drive a higher-than-usual turnout for a runoff in Mississippi. More than 43,000 absentee ballots have been requested, and that number could increase as final numbers are tabulated.
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. There is usually a large decrease in ballots cast between the first election and a runoff.
"My approach is MS first", Espy said at last week's debate.
