The Other Side: Mississippi Today’s Political Podcast

Oct 5, 2020

Democratic Senate candidate Mike Espy has said he believes his formula for success in the Nov. 3 general election against Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith is a 3% increase from the 2018 special election in Black voter turnout, and a 4% increase in his support among white voters.

Rep. Zakiya Summers and Sen. Sollie Norwood, both members of the Mississippi Legislative Black Caucus, discuss whether they believe Espy is making headway with Black voters in the U.S. Senate election. They also talk about what voting might look like during the COVID-19 pandemic.
