WLOX – Cindy Hyde-Smith talks strategy as she advances to Senate runoff
While not in D.C., Hyde-Smith expects to continue traveling the state in what’s been dubbed as the MAGA wagon that features a large photo of her with the President on the side of the bus. She’s also expecting a return POTUS visit.
“Don’t be surprised at all if President Trump comes back,” added Hyde-Smith. “I just got a really sweet call on my telephone a few minutes ago from Ivanka Trump. So, they are really getting behind me and we’re going to do what it takes to make sure everybody’s energized and we’ve got a lot of planning to do.”
WLOX – Democrat Mike Espy hits campaign trail as runoff begins
“Our strategy is very simple, go get those who voted last night and get them out again and try to expand the base for those who are registered voters who didn’t vote yesterday,” said Espy.
Meanwhile, the former congressman has sent a letter to Hyde-Smith challenging her to a debate. According to Espy, this is the second letter. The first, which he sent before the general election, went unanswered.
