With the final senate race happening on Tuesday, campaigning is crucial for Mississippi Senate candidates. It's the last U.S. Senate race to be decided in 2018 and will determine whether Republicans add to their slim majority.
Gov. Phil Bryant appointed Hyde-Smith to fill retiring Republican Sen.
Major League Baseball's donation, coming after Hyde-Smith's controversial comments and actions, created an immediate backlash once it was discovered last night. Littleton, a retired home economics teacher, says she voted for Democrat Mike Espy because she considers him "a highly intelligent man".
"My approach is MS first", Espy said at last week's debate.
Espy was introduced by Ayanna Pressley, a Massachusetts Democrat who will join Congress next year after unseating an incumbent in the primary. The runoff election is Tuesday, Nov. 27, 2018, and the victor will serve the final two years of a six-year term started by longtime Sen.
At least some Espy supporters are hearing the message.
"If he invited me to a public hanging, I'd be on the front row", she said November 2 about a political supporter.
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. Still, strategists believe Hyde-Smith is poised to win given Mississippi's historically conservative leanings: It has not elected a Democrat to the U.S. Senate since 1982 and Trump received 58 percent of the state's vote during the 2016 presidential election.

Meanwhile, France, Israel and the United Kingdom took a similar stand, condemning the Mumbai terror attack. An Indian comando rappels from a helicopter during an operation at Nariman House in Mumbai .
Later, at a Christmas-themed rally in Biloxi, where Trump emerged on the stage from a chimney, he said that Democrats want to impose an "extreme job-killing agenda" and that a vote for Espy would be a vote for a "Democrat agenda of socialism and open borders". Respected by all. We need her in Washington!. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith rallied at the Magnolia Civic Center to mobilize voters.
Some of the same people who worked on Jones' campaign in 2017 in Alabama are now working on Espy's. Espy is challenging Republican Sen.
Iowa's Ernst, meanwhile, emphasized themes including low taxes, a strong economy, higher military spending and stopping migrants from entering the country illegally.
The measure "rests on an odd combination of perpetuating both the Confederate legacy and the idea that this was not really in conflict with being a good citizen of the nation", said Nina Silber, the president of the Society of Civil War Historians and a Boston University history professor.
Hyde-Smith has been heavily criticized this month for making racist comments on the Confederate South.
Trump gave a shout-out to the "king of rock "n" roll" after taking the stage and said that, when he was young, "other than the blond hair, they said I looked like Elvis".
The race is expected to drive a higher-than-usual turnout for a runoff in Mississippi. There is usually a large decrease in ballots cast between the first election and a runoff.
The concurrent resolution was approved by Mississippi's House and Senate.
