GOP Senator Who Made ‘Hanging’ Remark Attended ‘Segregated’ Academy

"She votes for us and she votes for 'Make America Great Again, '" Trump said in Tupelo, where he was accompanied by Hyde-Smith.

Both of the candidates have a background in agriculture, which is the largest sector of Mississipi's economy, and both have experience in Washington. More than 43,000 absentee ballots have been requested, and that number could increase as final numbers are tabulated. "They have stooped to a new low, attacking her entire family and trying to destroy her personally instead of focusing on the clear differences on the issues between Cindy Hyde-Smith and her far-left opponent". But on Monday, he painted Democrats as radical and risky as he stumped for Republican Sen.

Hyde-Smith, who will face Black Democratic candidate Mike Espy in a runoff election Tuesday, has been under fire since she was caught at a November 2 campaign event telling a supporter that she would "be on the front row" of a "public hanging" if he invited her. There's typically a decrease in ballots cast between the first election and a runoff.

The photo, and the recently appointed Republican senator's attendance at one of the many private schools that was set up to bypass integration, adds historic context to comments she made in recent weeks about a "public hanging" that drew condemnations from across the political spectrum.

Facing public backlash, Major League Baseball has asked Republican Mississippi Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith to return a $5,000 donation made to her campaign.

Of course, children can't control where their parents send them to school, but Hyde-Smith apparently didn't learn from her parents' mistakes.


MLB's comment provided no explanation as to why the donation was made after Hyde-Smith's comments, and when exactly Major League Baseball chose to ask for it back. MS last elected a Democrat to the Senate in 1982.

Hyde-Smith has apologized to "anyone that was offended" by the hanging comment, saying she meant no ill will. The measure, which was unearthed by CNN's KFile during a review of Hyde-Smith's legislative history, is the latest in a series of issues that have surfaced during her campaign, many of which have evoked Mississippi's dark history of racism and slavery. Thad Cochran, who retired in April. The victor Tuesday gets the final two years of a six-year term.

"I have met with the president, and I proudly support him in negotiating these trades", she said.

President Donald Trump, of whom Hyde-Smith has been a vocal supporter, will hold two rallies in MS on Monday to whip up support for the Republican candidate. Hyde-Smith posted the photos of herself at Beauvoir in Facebook at the time with the caption: "Mississippi history at its best!"

On immigration, Trump defended the US response to the border clash on Sunday, when USA agents fired tear gas at migrants, some of whom had attempted to climb through fencing and wire separating the countries.

Illinois Cox Littleton, 92, of Jackson, Miss., seated, went to the Hinds County Courthouse in Jackson on Saturday, Nov. 24, 2018, to cast an absentee ballot in a U.S. Senate runoff election.
