WLBT – Push for a Senate special election debate ramps up

It falls in line with a video that was shot when Hyde-Smith was approached by a woman, who asked why she wasn’t debating, at a meet and greet over the weekend.

“Right now, my opponent does not have enough money to get on TV and my guys are saying that’s like handing him a $200,000 campaign donation because he’s way down in the polls,” Hyde-Smith is heard saying to the woman.

“If I’m the bad guy she paints me as, stand and debate me, talk about the issues,” McDaniel responded. “Don’t hide from me. Don’t hide from the people of Mississippi. You’re supposed to work for us. Not the other way around.”
