Espy is asking for money with hours to go before the polls open in Mississippi. I cannot inagine that new or more ads will make much difference now. GOTV efforts should have priority; ads might help there.
Mike's GOTV effort is like nothing I've ever seen before. Yesterday alone I got 5 phone calls from all over the country (3 or 4 more I didn't answer that I suspect were his too) 7 text messages supporting him (ACLU, PP, his campaign and the state Dems) and 2 postcards. One printed campaign thing and one that was a blank index card that had been created by hand with colored markers front and back and hand addressed. Every single contact included a reminder to make sure friends and family voted too, gave a link to my voting precinct, and suggested I take someone with me. The text messages all had links in them for precinct maps, polling place times and more info. This has been going on since the general. Based on my R friends' posts on fb, the only thing they are getting is a generic "vote for CH-S" in a text message that comes from "trump" himself. No links, just the message. One local trumpinista was confused about why trump had a local area code and finally decided he just got a local phone because he was doing 2 rallies here yesterday and would be in the state all day. Yeah, because phones only work in the state you're physically standing in.
