Rock and roll legend Elvis Presley was born in Tupelo, Mississippi, where the president held the first of two rallies to boost Republican Sen.

The troubling discovery comes the day before a runoff election between Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith and Democrat Mike Espy is set to take place.

Even though the results of the 2018 midterm elections have been widely decided, CNN reported President Trump suggested that a win for Democratic candidate Mike Espy would "revoke" Republican wins. "I will work very hard and do my very best to make MS very proud", she said.

"I think the media hyped it up as much as they could", said King, who said he voted for Hyde-Smith.

Hyde-Smith, as you may recall, said during her support of friend and supporter Colin Hutchinson, "I would fight a circle saw for him". She said it was "an exaggerated expression of regard". More than a week after the video's release, she said she apologized to "anyone that was offended by my comments", but also said the remark was used as a "weapon" against her.

President Donald Trump urged Mississippi Republicans to turn out for Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith, who was expected to cruise to victory in Tuesday's runoff election before a series of racial issues complicated her campaign.

Trump is slated to hold another rally Biloxi later Monday night.

Tuesday's victor will finish the final two years of the term begun by Republican Sen.

Particularly significant was his praise for former Senator Thad Cochran, the longtime Republican officeholder who retired early this year. Cindy Hyde-Smith, who is white, and Democrat Mike Espy, who is black.

President Donald Trump said he had spoken to Hyde-Smith about the lynching comment and said she felt "very badly".

Nooses were found hanging from trees and hate signs posted on the lawn of the Mississippi State Capitol building, on the eve of a U.S. Senate runoff election that has focused attention on the state's troubled history of race relations.

Mississippi Democrats hope to recreate the coalition that propelled Democrat Doug Jones to a Senate victory in neighboring Alabama a year ago by energizing black voters, particularly women, and winning support from white swing voters.

"We can not allow Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer to revoke that victory by winning the state of Mississippi", Trump said. "I have stood up for you and you know I will continue to stand up for the conservative values of MS".

There were also reports in the local MS newspapers that Hyde-Smith had attended a "segregation academy" as a high school student, one of many such institutions established after court-ordered school integration finally came to the state in 1969.

MS has a history of racially motivated lynchings. Hyde-Smith was appointed to the seat in April after GOP Sen. "They're not putting their best in there, right?" he said. "I wish we could be like Alabama who had enough with Roy Moore, you know".

If white voters outnumber black voters 2-to-1 on Tuesday, Espy would have to win 30 percent or more of white votes, a tough task in a state with possibly the most racially polarized electorate in the country.

Henry Barbour, the Republican National Committee committeeman and a longtime MS operative, said base voters in both parties are energized, but gave a slight edge to Espy's supporters.

At the debate with Hyde-Smith, Espy embraced the slogan "Mississippi first", a transparent tribute to Trump, declaring, "Mississippi first means I value MS over everything else - over party, over persons, over everybody".

Trump predicted a big day on Tuesday for Hyde-Smith and the Republican Party.

Espy said he refused to accept plea deals because, "I was so not guilty, I was innocent".
