WATCH: Maddow ridicules Republican Senator for asking supporters to vote — on Thanksgiving
On November 27, voters in Mississippi will head to the polls to vote in a special election for U.S. Senate.
Balloting will almost entirely be conducted next Tuesday, as Mississippi does not permit early voting or no-excuse absentee voting.
The race has reportedly been tightening between interim Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) and her Democratic Party opponent, former Agriculture Secretary Mike Espy. President Donald Trump is flying to Mississippi on Monday to campaign for Hyde-Smith on election eve.
On Tuesday evening, the Hyde-Smith and Epsy met for the final debate.
Hyde-Smith mentioned the importance of voting during the debate, but inadvertently told supporters to show up and vote — on Thanksgiving Day.
