President Donald Trump made his first appearance of two in the Magnolia state in Tupelo on Monday night, just one day before polls open to vote in the U.S. Senate runoff that has become quite a heated race between Senator Hyde-Smith and Mike Espy.
Then the President headed to the coast to appear in Biloxi, clearly trying to keep the momentum high for the next day’s election.
During the rally President Trump was joined by South Carolina Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham and Vice President Mike Pence.
At both rally the President urged the importance of voting for Sen. Hyde-Smith since Republicans look to expand their majority in the Senate with 53 seats.
“Your vote on Tuesday will decide whether we build on our extraordinary achievements, or whether we empower the radical Democrats to obstruct our progress,” Trump said.
According to Fox News, Trump addressed the controversial statements Sen. Hyde-Smith made about attending a “public hanging,” in a press conference before he made his way to Mississippi. He said the comments were taken a certain way and she didn’t mean them.
“I’ve known her for a period of time now as a senator, she’s been an excellent senator,” Trump said. “I’m going there, I’m going to make, I guess, two rallies on top of everything else. And I hope you’re all coming.”
The President and Vice President also held a round table to discuss the FIRST STEP ACT in Mississippi.
Polls open at 7:00 a.m. on November 27 and close at 7:00 p.m. that night.
