Hyde-Smith remarked that she would go to a "public hanging," a comment she said was made in jest and eventually apologized for. She is concerned that many Republicans who didn't vote for Hyde-Smith in the November 6 primary remain disgruntled and will stay home today.

Mr Espy is seeking to become the first African-American US senator from MS since Reconstruction.

Signs alongside the ropes urged voters to elect "someone who respects the lives of lynch victims" and "remind people that times haven't changed", according to local media. It says MS had 581 during that time, the highest number of any state.

"I know her, and I know she apologised, and she misspoke", the Republican president told reporters on his way to the southern state.

The enigma that is Donald J. Trump hates being in the limelight; he shies away from the camera at every opportunity he can.

The full description of the two donations shows the June donation listed as a "contribution", while the September donation is listed as being for the "special election" in which Hyde-Smith is now running.

But Republicans CBS News spoke with were much more likely to be there to support the president than Hyde-Smith, although some acknowledged that her winning will help his agenda.

So could a Democrat win?

Hyde-Smith is in a tight runoff Tuesday against Democrat Mike Espy, a former congressman and agriculture secretary under President Bill Clinton.

Comparisons have been drawn to last year's Alabama Senate race, which saw Democrat Doug Jones narrowly flip the seat after sexual assault allegations surfaced against Republican Roy Moore.

GOP groups including the National Republican Senatorial Committee and the Mississippi Victory Fund have poured resources into the race to bolster Hyde-Smith's campaign.

"I will be in Gulfport and Tupelo, Mississippi, on Monday night doing two Rallies for Senator Hyde-Smith, who has a very important Election on Tuesday", Trump wrote on Twitter on Sunday.

President Donald Trump is heading to MS for two rallies to try to keep a Senate seat in Republican hands.
