  • Democrat Mike Espy answers a question during a televised Mississippi U.S. Senate debate with his opponent appointed U.S. Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith R-Miss. in Jackson Miss. Tuesday Nov. 20 2018

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 photos posted 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.

Some of the same people who worked on Jones' campaign in 2017 in Alabama are now working on Espy's. Jones did what Espy is trying to do - win as a Democrat in a conservative, Republican-dominated state.

Trump was in MS for the pair of rallies and a roundtable discussion on prison and sentencing reform in an eleventh-hour effort to keep the seat in GOP hands.

Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) is shown at her desk in her office in July 2018. He does remind voters while Hyde-Smith was in a white academy, he and his twin sister were being called racial slurs while integrating Yazoo City High School in 1969.

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

Espy, 64, served in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1987 to 1993 and as U.S. agriculture secretary in the Clinton administration from 1993 to 1994.

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.
