Hyde-Smith promotes Barrett’s SCOTUS nomination
As leftist attacks continue to be thrown at Judge Barrett and her faith, it’s important to know who she really is. It’s clear she is just the kind of impartial jurist who should be nominated and confirmed to the Supreme Court. #ConfirmACB https://t.co/pnLp2EqJlI

Of the 23 Republican held U.S. Senate seats in play this 2020 election cycle, the Washington Post political analysts at ‘The Fix’ list 12 seats as potentially competitive, with 2 “more likely to flip than not.”
Mississippi’s U.S. Senate seat currently held by Republican incumbent Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith is not on the list despite Democrat challenger Mike Espy’s best efforts are drawing attention to the race and raising funds from out of state.
WaPo lists Colorado and Arizona’s Republican seats as likely to flip this cycle.
Congressman Thompson says Trump promotes White Supremacist ideology

State leaders took historic steps this year to retire Mississippi’s divisive state flag, which featured a Confederate battle emblem; in November, voters will get the final say in how the new state flag will look.
Mississippi’s Nov. 3 election will feature three statewide ballot referendums. Ballot measure 3 will ask voters to approve or reject a proposed design for the new state flag. If a majority of voters approve the design, the Mississippi Legislature will then vote to formally adopt it as the new flag. If a majority of voters reject the proposal, a state-sanctioned commission will again design a new flag for voters to either approve or reject.
Either way, voters in November won’t have any mechanism to bring back the former state flag, which was the last in the nation to feature the Confederate battle flag. Instead, voters face the choice of what will replace the now-retired flag.

MS-01 Democrat challenger Eliason backs packing the SCOTUS
How about both? We cannot wait while a Trump-packed Court strips away decades of progress of human rights. Court expansion is the best immediate solution, then we can follow up with (long) term limits to help prevent this same crisis in the future. https://t.co/jOMEHKSr1h
