Trump to rally for GOP's Senate candidate in Mississippi

Trump to rally for GOP's Senate candidate in Mississippi

Hyde-Smith faces Democrat Mike Espy in a special election on Tuesday, and the challenger's campaign sought to spotlight the refund request by baseball officials.

Appointed U.S. Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith, R-Miss., answers a question Tuesday during a televised Mississippi U.S. Senate debate with Democrat Mike Espy in Jackson, Miss.Democrat Mike Espy responds to a statement from his opponent, appointed U.S. Sen. Like a lot of PACs that are more business-oriented than pet cause oriented, it tends to spread its money around to both Republican and Democratic candidates, with the level of its donations to each party varying with the political winds.

Hyde-Smith has had several stumbles, defending herself after a photograph emerged of her wearing a replica Confederate soldier's hat, as well as a video of her praising a supporter by saying she would sit on the front row of a public hanging with him.

U.S. Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith attended and graduated from a segregation academy that were set up so that white parents could avoid having to send their children to schools with black students, a yearbook reveals.

The photo shows the school's mascot dressed in what appears to be a Confederate uniform holding a Confederate flag. Hyde-Smith posed in a Confederate hat for a 2014 photo captioned "Mississsippi history at its best!" Chuck Schumer, Rep. Nancy Pelosi and "the legendary Maxine Waters", drawing resounding boos - even though Trump has said that Pelosi deserves to become the next House speaker and that he could even find Republican members to vote for her.

Espy also spoke on the debate from the other night, telling the crowd his opponent, Cindy Hyde-Smith, shouldn't have to read any honest apology from a notepad.

Espy said he was called "the N-word" many days during integration.

He was the top quarterback there for four years, starting 62 games, throwing for 68 touchdowns and 69 interceptions. Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said that familiarity was part of the team's decision to go with Sanchez.

"I also recognize that this comment was twisted and it was turned into a weapon to be used against me", she said. I am the candidate that wants to move MS into the future. I made a decision to use that very hard time to learn from and try to reach out to people of all races.

With the MS runoff election underway, the young voter turnout is expected to hold a lot of weight.

More than 43,000 absentee ballots have been requested for the runoff, and that number could increase as circuit clerks continue compiling information, the MS secretary of state's office said Saturday. There is usually a large decrease in ballots cast between the first election and a runoff.

Hyde-Smith has a double-digit lead on Espy in a poll conducted from November 19-21 and November 23-24. On immigration, she says immigrants should come into the country legally.

Saturday was the deadline for in-person absentee voting. Jones said he has been "an independent voice for the state of Alabama", and Espy would be the same for Mississippi. Thad Cochran, who left office for health reasons.

Espy is trying to become the first African-American to represent MS in the Senate since Reconstruction. The state last elected a Democrat to the Senate in 1982.

She has a history of controversial conduct, the most recent from a campaign rally earlier this month where she was seen on video joking with a supporter about happily being his guest for a public hanging. She is an outstanding person who is strong on the Border, Crime, Military, our great Vets, Healthcare & the 2nd A [mendment].
