Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith chose not to speak to reporters following last nights debate with Mike Espy. Instead Senator Roger Wicker addressed the media on her behalf. Wicker defended her decision stating she is doing exactly what he did 10 years ago. Wicker said the story should be about the debate, and not about what might have been missing in the debate. Espy did speak to reporters. The former congressman attempted to clarify points that he made regarding his indictment/trial and how he feels he is different from his opponent.
