Runoff election: county-by-county breakdown

The nation was focused on Mississippi last night as just one seat in the U.S. Senate remained open. The polls closed at 7 p.m. and shortly after, precincts from across the state began to report their numbers. 

At 9:30 the race was called and Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith was elected to remain in Washington to serve the remainder of Thad Cochran’s term, beating out Democratic challenger Mike Espy. 

The incumbent Senator held a 13 point lead the time the race was called with 75% of the votes in, and now with 100% of precincts reporting, the final split was 53.9% to 46.1%. 

With nearly 890,000 votes tallied, Hyde-Smith received 479,278 votes while Espy got 410, 693 votes.
