President Donald Trump is stumping for Mississippi Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, saying a vote for her is a vote for him.
Trump on Tuesday called her a "true Mississippi patriot." She lauded Trump and said to the crowd: "Is he not the best president we have ever had?"
Hyde-Smith was appointed this year to fill the seat of Republican Thad Cochran. She faces Republican Chris McDaniel and Democrats Mike Espy and Tobey Bernard Bartee in next month's special election for the remainder of the two-year term.
Trump says a vote for Espy is a vote for the Democrat agenda for "open borders and radical socialism."
Some rallygoers wore "Trump voters for McDaniel" T-shirts.
When Trump introduced her, there were some audible boos from some corners of the audience.
