The president traveled to Mississippi on Monday to campaign for Hyde-Smith and seal the deal for her election, just as did earlier for other Republican senators-elect: Kevin Cramer in North Dakota, Josh Hawley in Missouri, Mike Braun in Indiana and Rick Scott in Florida.

Taking nothing for granted, President Trump went “all in” for Hyde-Smith by holding huge get- out-the-vote rallies first in Tupelo in northern Mississippi and then in Biloxi in the southern part of the state.

Hyde-Smith was appointed to the Senate in the spring by Republican Gov. Phil Bryant to replace Cochran when Cochran retired due to poor health.
