red to blue in Mississippi? it could happen

Last week, Republican Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith of Mississippi casually said she'd love to be in the front row of a public hanging.

Then she said making it harder for certain people to vote is a "great idea."

She's locked in a tight runoff race with Democrat Mike Espy, the first African-American elected to Congress from Mississippi since Reconstruction and the first African-American Secretary of Agriculture.

Senator Hyde-Smith's comments are completely unacceptable and disqualifying. Stand with me and donate $4 to Mike Espy. Let's flip Mississippi red to blue.

After Election Day, the race was tied. We're headed for a runoff on November 27.

This is a historic opportunity to flip a deep red seat blue and to defeat another extremist. Together, we won in Alabama. We can do it again in Mississippi.

Chip in $4 to Mike Espy. This is our last chance in 2018 to flip a Senate seat and dent the Republican majority.
