Senate candidate Mike Espy is calling for medicaid expansion in Mississippi

01:35

A poll earlier this week showed Mike Espy one point behind Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith in the Mississippi race. Espy says that health care is one of the biggest issues in his state and he thinks medicare expansion can address the health care of a quarter of million Mississippians: "We've had 8 rural hospitals to have closed in the last 8 years and that's because of uncompensated care."
