Phone banking for Mike Espy for US Senate

The midterm elections are not over. The race for US Senator in Mississippi will go to a Run-Off election on November 27th. Democrat Mike Espy needs our help to win.

This is a runoff election that until a few days ago was rated SOLID REPUBLICAN. But incumbent Republican Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith has continued to say extreme and SHOCKINGLY RACIST things (she joked about "public lynching") and photographs have surfaced of her wearing a Confederate hat while posing with a member of a known hate group.

She has now LOST the support of many donors, including corporations — and Mike Espy is fighting for every vote he can get. Mike Espy is a former Congressman from MS, a former US Secretary of Agriculture, and he will bring Mississippi forward, not backward. If he wins he will be the first black Senator to go to Washington from Mississippi since Reconstruction.

Mississippi Democrats need to turn out and VOTE on November 27th. Democrats Abroad can help by PHONE BANKING for the MIKE ESPY CAMPAIGN this Saturday, November 24th.
