Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith says in a recent video obtained by the Daily Journal that she won't debate special election opponent Chris McDaniel because she doesn't want to increase his prominence on the campaign trail.

The video is purportedly taken at a private-meet-and-greet over the weekend. It was provided to the Daily Journal by the McDaniel campaign, which claims it does not know who shot the video nor the identity of a woman seen in the video asking Hyde-Smith questions.
