Former MS Congressman has launched campaign for U.S. Senate.

Mike Espy officially launched his campaign Tuesday and will likely be setting the stage, once again, to face incumbent Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith.

In 2018, Hyde-Smith and Espy battled for the remainder of Senator Thad Cochran’s term. Cochran, who resigned in April of 2018, passed away last year.

Hyde-Smith ultimately won the race, making her the first woman to represent Mississippi in in the U.S. Senate.
