President Trump rallies in support for GOP U.S. Senate candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith ahead of Tuesday's runoff election against Democratic opponent Mike Espy.

Neither candidate secured the requisite 50 percent of votes during their Nov. 6 election.

Hyde-Smith may well need the president's support. She has been facing intense scrutiny recently over having attended a white private school that was founded after court-ordered school desegregation of public schools.
