SOUTHAVEN, Miss. (WTVA) - President Donald Trump was greeted by a room full of support from an expressive crowd at the Landers Center during the Southaven rally.
He campaigned for Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R), who is running in a special November election.
“We’ve got a lot of work to do in Washington, D.C. and this man is leading the charge because we have a Supreme Court justice to get confirmed,” said Hyde-Smith.
Her win is an advantage Republicans need in the Senate, where they are now holding a slim majority of 51-49.
"I've been on the Trump train since June of 2015, and I just love Trump," said Bradford James, a Gore Springs resident. "I've missed other opportunities he's been in Mississippi to see him speak and I was not missing this one."
The president continually spoke of his Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh, who is being investigated over allegations of sexual misconduct.
He challenged accuser Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's statements before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
The president urged voters to show up at the polls. The midterm election is on November 6th.
