Former Democrat Cindy Hyde-Smith reached so far across the isle that she became a Republican, apparently from opportunism, and perhaps racism. She has mindlessly and/or opportunistically voted with Trump 100% of the time, since she was appointed interim US Senator last April. Mississippians need opportunity and not an opportunist like Hyde-Smith.
Mike Espy has repeatedly said: “Mississippi first means I value Mississippi over everything else — over party, over persons, over everybody. I am an independent person and I will be an independent senator” See: “Trump Rallies for Embattled US Senator in Mississippi“, November 26, 2018, https://www.voanews.com/a/trump-rallies-for-embattled-us-senator-in-mississippi/4675302.html
