JACKSON, Miss (AP) – The latest in the US Senate in Mississippi (every time local)
The two candidates in the Mississippi Special US Senate Competition agreed to talk only about the campaign section.
Mississippi Farm Bureau Alliance spokesman Jon Kalahar said Republican Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith and Democratic challenger Mike Espy agreed on Tuesday's terms.
The one hour debate on the evening of 20 November, Jackson, and will be television and radio. The alliance and WLBT-TV support it.
Hyde Smith was in the second year of the Mississippi Agricultural Commissioner when he was appointed in April to temporarily succeed Republican Senator Thad Cochran when he retired. Espy is a former US secretary of agriculture. The winner of the November 27 wreck serves the last two years of the term launched by Cochran.
At the heart of the national democracies is the Mississippi US Senate run, one year after a republican-dominated second South-South state held a long run.
Democrat Doug Jones defeated Roy Moore in Alabama after Moore was accused of sexual misconduct.
Democrat Mike Espy in Mississippi is questioning Republican Senate Cindy Hyde-Smitht. He faces sharp criticism after praising the supporter, saying he is participating in a "public hangout" if he is.
Joe Trippi, a democrat campaign advisor working for Jones and now working for Espy, I think "does not seem ready for prime time."
Republican Haley Barbour, former Governor of Mississippi, raised money for a super PAC supporting Hyde-Smith. He says trustworthy votes are not President Donald Trump and Espy.
Republican US Senator Roger Wicker says Mississippi's counterpart is unfairly treating the sponsor at a campaign event when he says, "If you would invite the public, I'd be in the front row."
Wicker says that Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith's words are "beaten by his opponent … to hurt his character."
Hyde-Smith gave a comment on November 2, and a video was posted on Sunday. It calls the expression "Exaggerated expression."
His words have raised criticism in Mississippi, which deals with the history of racially motivated lynching.
Hyde-Smith is white. A Black Democrat, former US Minister of Agriculture, Mike Espy, faced on November 27th.
The winner serves the last two years of Republican Thad Cochran's launch. Hyde-Smitht was temporarily served when Cochran retired in April.
