Mississippi's ugly past casts long shadow on Senate election

Nooses found at Mississippi state Capitol one day before special election

Nooses found at Mississippi state Capitol one day before special election

Thad Cochran retired due to health issues.

Earlier Monday, as he was leaving for MS, the president said Hyde-Smith "felt very badly" about the reaction to her remarks. Cindy Hyde-Smith ahead of Tuesday's run-off election. I won't tell Major League Baseball what it should do, but having experience with campaign committees, I'll say that this is the sort of thing people get fired over when public-facing businesses are involved or, at the very least, something for which they offer full explanations and apologies. I'm voting for Smith.

"I can't connect that to her".

Trump held rallies in Tupelo and Biloxi on Monday to campaign for Hyde-Smith as Espy appears to have gained momentum in recent days, thanks at least in part to controversial comments Hyde-Smith has made on the campaign trail.

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.

Turkey, Saudi leaders 'could meet on the sidelines of G20'
Khashoggi is the Washington Post journalist who lived in the USA but was horrifically assassinated in the Saudi embassy in Turkey. Despite mounting criticism of the kingdom, most analysts argue that Prince Mohammed is likely to weather the Khashoggi crisis.

The Mississippi Department of Public Safety, which is investigating the incident, said the items were placed there early Monday morning. Other than the blond hair, when I was growing up they said I looked like Elvis. But, "if you don't vote for her, it's a vote for him", she added.

A spokesman for Pressley said she arrived in MS on Saturday and flew to Washington on Monday morning. Whose judgement was it that a donation to her campaign, in that amount, at that particular time, made sense?

Democrats are hoping to pull off an Alabama-style upset in the state after a series of missteps from Hyde-Smith.

Amid the hubbub around the race - which at first was expected to go comfortably Republican - President Donald Trump travelled to Mississippi on the eve of the vote to campaign for Ms Hyde-Smith.

"If you let Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters and Chuck Schumer win the Mississippi Senate seat, they will try to erase all of our gains, reverse all of our progress and impose - you know this - they want to impose their extreme job-killing agenda".

On US holiday, angry Trump lashes judges
Though there are some armed soldiers deployed at the border, that's just standard practice for protecting the troops, Mattis said. But he was adamant the military would remain within its legal limits. "If they have to, they'll use lethal force", he said.

"Well, I know her and I know she apologized, and she misspoke", Trump told reporters on Moday at the White House, according to Politico.

But Republicans CBS News spoke with were much more likely to be there to support the president than Hyde-Smith, although some acknowledged that her winning will help his agenda. And sure enough, Tuesday's runoff election isn't on everyone's radar here. She faces Democrat Mike Espy, a former congressman and agriculture secretary who would become Mississippi's first black senator since the Reconstruction era if he wins.

"I've never really hard anything about Mike Espy", said 19-year-old Marjorie Lam, a biology student at the community college. "That is what is on the ballot tomorrow", she said.

"She stood up to the Democrat smear machine", Trump said.

British, EU leaders to meet as Brexit deadline looms
But Borrell rejected this idea, suggesting Sunday's meeting should not take place if the issue were not resolved beforehand. Spain is demanding a guarantee that Gibraltar would only be covered by a future trade deal if Madrid gives its consent.
