State significance

Democrats and Republicans are looking further down the ballot in Mississippi -- which has been battered by the coronavirus pandemic -- at the race between Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, a Republican, and Democrat Mike Espy, a former congressman and agriculture secretary under President Bill Clinton.

The race for a full term is a rematch of the 2018 special election, when Espy came within eight percentage points of Hyde-Smith, in the closest Senate race in the state in 30 years. (A Democrat hasn’t represented Mississippi in the Senate since 1988.)

If his long-shot bid is successful, Espy would be the first Black senator to represent Mississippi in Congress since the Reconstruction Era.

*Counties are colored red or blue when the % expected vote reporting reaches a set threshold. This threshold varies by state and is based on patterns of past vote reporting and expectations about how the vote will report this year.
