Cindy Hyde-Smith gets boost from Donald Trump at MS rally

Nooses found at Mississippi state Capitol one day before special election

The comment has become a major talking point in the lead-up to the state's special election on November 27, where Hyde-Smith faces Democrat challenger Mike Espy - a former secretary of agriculture and congressman who in 1986 became the first African-American to represent MS at the federal level since Reconstruction - in one of the closest senatorial races in the state in recent memory.

In an effort to get out the GOP vote and stifle any momentum Democrats may have leading into Tuesday's special election, Trump has organized a 5:30 p.m. ET rally in Tupelo and another rally at 8 p.m. ET in Biloxi.

Trippi said Espy's formula for victory is a big Democratic turnout, particularly African-Americans, and winning about 25 percent of white voters by peeling off some Republicans who are younger, female or college-educated.

Nevertheless she is expected to win in the staunchly Republican state.

As per media reports, a source said, " John Chau tried to reach the Sentinel island on November 14 but could not make it". But on the morning of the following day, the waiting fishermen saw from a distance his body being dragged by tribesmen.

"We want leaders who give honest apologies and can be humble enough to admit when they're wrong", read one, an apparent reference to Ms. Hyde-Smith's delay in offering an apology to those offended by her "public hanging" remark. "But if we win tomorrow, we'll be at 53-47", Trump said in Tupelo, Mississippi, at the first rally on Monday.

"I know her, and I know she apologised, and she misspoke", the Republican president told reporters on his way to the southern state.

President Donald Trump rallied in MS on Monday night to campaign for Sen. And, given that Hyde-Smith was in the process of showing some pretty ugly true colors at the time, Major League Baseball should not have done it.

Hyde-Smith campaign spokeswoman Melissa Scallan later condemned the nooses by saying: 'Obviously, this behavior is offensive and has no place in a civilized society'.

San Diego State (3-1) was blown out by top-ranked Duke in its Maui opener and fell behind by 19 early against Xavier (2-3). Barrett took the Blue Devils' unbeaten record into his own hands and was rebuffed at every turn.

If he prevailed, Mr Espy would become the first black senator since the Reconstruction Era following the US Civil War. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) as voters head to the polls on Tuesday, but he did so with some holiday cheer.

Comparisons have been drawn to last year's Alabama Senate race, which saw Democrat Doug Jones narrowly flip the seat after sexual assault allegations surfaced against Republican Roy Moore.

After no candidate in the four-way US Senate race won a majority of votes on Election Day, the contest went to a run-off between Espy and Hyde-Smith, who was appointed to fill Senator Thad Cochran's seat after his health declined.
