Mississippi Republican faces new Confederate claims before Trump visit

Yearbook cheerleader pic allegedly shows GOP Sen. Hyde-Smith at 70s high school segregation academy

The other Republican in the race, Chris McDaniel, had about 16 percent of the vote, compared to Democrat Tobey Bartee's 1.4 percent.

Mississippi's Republican Party and Hyde-Smith's campaign have been emphasizing a liberal-conservative split in recent days, and Barbour said a larger turnout favors Hyde-Smith. The signs referred to the state's history of lynchings and the Senate race.

Hyde-Smith has apologized to "anyone that was offended" by the hanging comment, saying she meant no ill will. "All the MS farmers want is a fair deal, and I'm excited that the president has stepped up to renegotiate these deals". That's where the similarities end. "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".

In addition, the former lobbyist and USA agriculture secretary under President Bill Clinton collected $750,000 after lobbying on behalf of an African despot now on trial for crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court. While he resigned amid accusations that he improperly accepted gifts from companies regulated by the USDA, he eventually was acquitted at trial of corruption charges brought against him.

"I will be in Gulfport and Tupelo, Mississippi, on Monday night doing two Rallies for Senator Hyde-Smith, who has a very important Election on Tuesday".

McDaniel, who led field operations that boosted longshot Democrat Doug Jones to a special election victory in Alabama a year ago, said Espy's campaign wants voters to focus on issues important to them. He opposes Trump's tax cuts, saying they didn't have the effect intended.

Cindy Hyde-Smith is once again under fire for a race-related issue, after the Jackson Free Press in MS reported Friday that she graduated from a high school segregation academy. He also told supporters he began the debate with a blank notepad and she had notes on hers before it started.

Markets on 'wait and see' on PH-China deals, says analyst
It was entitled "Framework Agreement on Joint Maritime Oil and Gas Exploration between China and the Philippines ". Many fear the long-simmering disputes could spark an armed conflict that could shatter Asia's bustling economies.


The 2007 resolution wasn't the only legislation Hyde-Smith backed that would elevate Mississippi's Confederate history.

"I'm going to be the senator for everyone", Espy said.

John Burris, a civil rights attorney, says he is a huge fan, but that it's time for Giants fans to withdraw their support for the Johnson and team amid the controversy. Maybe we want to make it just a little more hard.

Williams, an African-American resident of Jackson who voted for Espy on November 6, said the campaign has blanketed African-American churches, fraternities and sororities. She shares his position on the border, the military, crime, health care, and the Second Amendment.

On Nov. 11, a video from a public event Nov. 2 surfaced showing Hyde-Smith joking alongside one of her longtime supporters that if he ever invited her to attend a public hanging, she'd sit in the front row.

"She stood up to the Democrat smear machine", Trump said, praising her for voting to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. "She read that apology, and I saw her do that".
