The final US Senate race concludes today as the Mississippi Senate run-off election will be decided. Since Mississippi is one of 16 states that has no early voting procedure we have no clues about which side may be gaining an initial advantage. The contest is between appointed incumbent Cindy Hyde-Smith (R) and former US Agriculture Secretary and ex-Mississippi Congressman Mike Espy (D). Both sides agree that Sen. Hyde-Smith has the advantage heading into today, but all concede that Mr. Espy has momentum and that an upset cannot be ruled out.
