The free-for-all special Senate election in Mississippi has a strong chance of heading to a November 27 runoff, where appointed Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, R-Miss., would have early the advantage, according toa new NBC News/Marist poll of the state.
In the November 6 “jungle primary” — where multiple candidates, regardless of party, are competing — Republican Hyde-Smith gets support from 38 percent of likely voters, Democrat Mike Espy gets 29 percent, Republican Chris McDaniel gets 15 percent and Democrat Tobey Bartee gets 2 percent.
A town hall hosted by Democrat David Baria in Gautier Monday night was filled with people, all eager to ask the U.S. Senate candidate questions.
Constituents filled the room at MGCCC’s Jackson County campus to hear Baria talk. This was the ninth town hall event hosted by the senatorial candidate. Baria is running against incumbent Republican Roger Wicker to represent Mississippi in the Senate.
The Bay St. Louis resident, who grew up in Moss Point, says he just wants to give voters a chance to ask questions so they will be informed on election day.

When Mississippi trial courts return to session in January, one-third or more of the benches could be occupied by brand new judges.
Retirements, along with contested races in next month’s non-partisan elections, could reshape the makeup of the state’s county, chancery and circuit courts.
Of the state’s 52 chancery court judges, 20 are retiring. Another three contested races could mean that 44 percent of the chancellors will be new. In the circuit courts, there are nine contested races and seven of the 57 incumbent judges are not running for their current seats. Most are retiring. Hinds County Circuit Court Judge Jeff Weill Sr. stepped down to run for a spot on the Court of Appeals.
