President Donald Trump is slated to land for a campaign rally in Tupelo, Mississippi at 7 p.m. CDT along with Republican gubernatorial candidate Tate Reeves.
The race is seen as a tight one as Reeves faces off against four-term Attorney General Jim Hood.
As the AP reported, “Reeves says under Republican control in Mississippi, students are seeing academic gains and lawmakers are building up the state’s financial reserves.”
It’s an odd claim since Mississippi ranks 46th in the nation for its education. Only 32 percent of the state has a college education and the medium income is just $23,121.
This year, Mississippi was named the third-worst state in the U.S. to live. It’s unclear if Reeves is celebrating this fact because it isn’t ranked last.
Either way, Trump will be on hand in Mississippi to talk about how Republicans have helped keep the state rate nearly last in the country.
Watch the rally below:
‘A damn liar’: Bill Barr ripped for ‘playing clean up for Trump’ after release of IG report
Attorney General William Barr massaged the findings of the Department of Justice investigation into the origins of the Russia probe -- and legal experts and other social media users were appalled.
The attorney general claimed this report, like special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, had cleared President Donald Trump of wrongdoing, and insisted the probe had found the FBI had conducted an improper investigation of his 2016 presidential campaign.
“The Inspector General’s report now makes clear that the FBI launched an intrusive investigation of a U.S. presidential campaign on the thinnest of suspicions that, in my view, were insufficient to justify the steps taken," Barr said in a statement. "It is also clear that, from its inception, the evidence produced by the investigation was consistently exculpatory.”
‘Staggering’ new data shows income of top 1% has grown 100 times faster than bottom 50% since 1970
"The bulk of a generation of economic growth has been captured and concentrated in a few hands, and many people have barely seen any of it."
New data released Monday explains the numbers behind Sen. Bernie Sanders' often-cited statistic that the three richest Americans hold more wealth than the 160 million people who make up the bottom 50% of the population.
Washington Post columnist Greg Sargent published what he called "stunning" findings from Stanford University economist Gabriel Zucman, showing how both an explosion in annual earnings by the rich and an increasingly regressive tax structure have combined to allow the top 1% of Americans' wealth to triple over the past five decades.
Ex-GOP lawmaker: Trump is a ‘cult figure’ who has forced Republicans to abandon their principles
Former GOP lawmaker William Cohen, who was among the congressional Republicans who turned on former President Richard Nixon during the Watergate scandal, tells NBC News that there is no way his party will ever turn on President Donald Trump.
Reflecting on the differences today between the GOP under Trump and Nixon, Cohen said that GOP officials in the 1970s felt far more free to challenge their own party's president than they do today.
