A few thoughts:
1. It's Mississippi, so I'm not very optimistic. It's not like Hyde-Smith is a child molester; politicians saying racist things is like an average Tuesday there. Would be a nice surprise if she lost.

2. Technically, Donald Trump doesn't learn lessons because learning implies a capacity for growth and change.

3. Mueller caught Manafort lying to him; there goes the cooperation deal. Man, Putin must really have his nuts in a vise. The question is whether Mueller actually needs Manafort's testimony to indict the bigger fish.

1. Yeah, in the words of a great singer

However, there's also a large black population. So the three questions are:

How many of the hardcore racists turn out?
How many of the black voters turn out?
How many people are there who aren't in either category, and what will they do?

Also, and ironically, there is apparently a sizable contingent of the hardcore racists who never liked her in the first place. So there's also a question of whether they'll show up to support her (or at least vote against the black candidate) or not. One would assume yes, but who knows anything anymore...

2. No comment needed

3. Putin poisons people with Plutonium. In other people's countries. I'd be scared too...

The neo-Confederate will go to the Senate from Mississippi. Big shock.

As for Manafort, it's been suggested that he may have set Trump up to commit felonies for which he's going down. Since it's been known all along that Manafort's been lying, by feeding him the right BS for his lawyer to tell Trump then Trump's lawyers would tell provable lies in their written responses to Mueller (which Trump signed). Manafort as an unwitting double agent would do wonders for his thoughts that he's going to get pardoned.

You mean the theory is that Manafort was illegally coordinating with Donald Trump's lawyers, and Mueller knew this so he fed Manafort a bunch of bollocks to see if it turned up in Trump's written answers? Thereby getting Trump to commit perjury written down? It seems too tidy to be true, so I'm going to wait and see.

Reporters have picked up signs that an extremely high profile witness has been subpoenaed by Mueller's grand jury. Probably Donald Jr. if not Tiny Hands himself.

I read that the coordination between Manafort and Trump's lawyers was legal because Mueller didn't require that they not do that as part of the plea agreement. Because it would be all the more useful to him if they did cooperate.
