After Republican Senator Thad Cochran resigned in April, a special election for Mississippi's US Senate seat began.
Trump has campaigned heavily for her. But if black voters rise to 40 percent of the electorate and Espy wins nine out of 10, he needs less than a quarter of white votes to squeak out a victory.
But on a real note, President Trump's MS rally was to encourage people to vote for the Republican incumbent against her Democrat challenger Mike Espy in the MS midterms special election. "I resigned the contract". "Because I was not guilty", Espy told the Associated Press in October.
