MLB PAC Wants Money Back After Last-Minute Donation To Hyde-Smith

Trump rallies Hyde Smith voters as Espy pushes turnout

President Trump announced that he will be traveling to MS on Monday to endorse Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith.

She used both her opening and closing statements of the only debate of the runoff campaign to promote Monday's presidential rallies, citing the online address to get tickets. Hyde-Smith was captured in a viral video making remarks about attending a "public hanging".

While Hyde-Smith has taken a brazenly conservative stance on most issues, Espy has also played up his willingness to work with conservatives, and hasn't promoted some of the more left-leaning policies of his party, such as open borders and Medicare for all.

Espy, who was USA agriculture secretary under Bill Clinton, spoke on Saturday about how he and his twin sister were among 17 black students who integrated the all-white Yazoo City high school in 1969, graduating in 1971.

Espy is trying to become the first African-American to represent MS in the Senate since Reconstruction. Thad Cochran, who resigned in April amid health concerns. Espy is a former congressman and former US agriculture secretary. It's the last U.S. Senate race to be decided in 2018 and will determine whether Republicans add to their slim majority. She has been facing intense scrutiny recently over having attended a white private school that was founded after court-ordered school desegregation of public schools. She has made racially charged comments which have caused controversy.

Hyde-Smith said the "public hanging" comment was "an exaggerated expression of regard" for a fellow cattle rancher.

Ex-Trump campaign chair Manafort denies meeting with WikiLeaks' Assange
For more than a year now, Manafort has been at the heart of several unresolved threads of the Mueller investigation. His lawyers declined to answer the Guardian's questions about the visits and have not responded to CNN's inquiries.

According to Politico, on November 11, Hyde-Smith appeared in a video on social media, saying that if a supporter invited her to a public hanging, she'd sit in the front row.

Hyde-Smith was appointed as a temporary successor to longtime Republican Sen. The newspaper included photos from the school's yearbook, including a group photo of the cheerleading squad, of which Hyde-Smith was a member. Several dozen people waited in a line that stretched out of the Hinds county courthouse in downtown Jackson, including a retired home economics teacher, Illinois Cox Littleton, 92, who said she voted for Espy because she considers him "a highly intelligent man". He said he knows "where her heart is and her heart is good".

After images of the 59-year-old - who is running for re-election this month - surfaced showing her sporting a Confederate Army hat and a video emerged revealing her support for voter suppression, more of her controversial background has come to light.

On immigration, Trump defended the USA response to the border clash on Sunday, when US agents fired tear gas at migrants, some of whom had attempted to climb through fencing and wire separating the countries. It says her father "fought to defend his homeland and contributed to the rebuilding of the country". The above-linked article (read it in full) notes that her official bio "conspicuously" omits mention of her high school years.

Monday's Biloxi rally is anticipated to draw hundreds of protesters, the Hill reported.
