Police Chief Bart Aguirre said there have been discussions about the president visiting Tupelo on the Friday before the November 5 general election.

That visit would be on behalf of Republican gubernatorial candidate Tate Reeves, whom Trump has endorsed.



There has been no official word yet from the White House or from the Reeves campaign that the visit will happen.

More than 1.9 million Mississippians registered to vote ahead of election

“They are the only ones that matter,” said Dr. Joe Weinberg, associate professor of political science at the University of Southern Mississippi.

As the general election approaches, there are currently more than 1.9 million registered voters in Mississippi, according to the Secretary of State’s office.

“Mississippi actually has a higher percentage of registered voters,” Weinberg said. “That’s a percentage of the eligible voters than the national average. I think part of that is because we’ve made it pretty easy to register to vote when you get your license.”

Weinberg said Pine Belt voters will have a big influence on the statewide election.

WJTV – Congressman Bennie Thompson comments on passing of U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings

Thompson said this about his colleague:

“I am deeply saddened by the passing of my colleague and brother, U.S. Rep. Elijah Cummings. We are never truly prepared for the death of a loved one. Congressman Cummings was a man that was not afraid to speak truth to power. Our nation is better because of his years of service and commitment. May God comfort his wife, children, staff, family, and friends during this difficult time. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.” (Mathew 5:4)
