Bryant, other top Mississippi Republicans stick with Trump
JACKSON - Several top Republicans in Mississippi are standing by presidential nominee Donald Trump as he denies accusations that he groped and kissed some women against their will.
Republican Gov. Phil Bryant and U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker both say they want a Republican president to make the next nominations to the U.S. Supreme Court.
U.S. Rep. Steven Palazzo says that electing Trump and keeping a Republican-controlled House will block "the worst parts of the liberal agenda."
The state's lone Democrat in Washington, U.S. Rep. Bennie Thompson, is calling on his party to unite behind Hillary Clinton. Thompson says Trump doesn't care about education and health care.
