JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Mike Espy told a gathering of Democratic women that he’s a better choice to aid women in Mississippi than Cindy Hyde-Smith, the first woman to ever represent the state in Congress.
Espy and U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, a California Democrat and possible 2020 presidential candidate, held a women’s breakfast Saturday morning in Jackson.
The former congressman and secretary of agriculture cites his support for expanded health care coverage, gender equity, reducing student debt, and protecting insurance availability for people with pre-existing health conditions.
