Dem contrasts 'diversity' with GOP senator in Mississippi

Democrat Mike Espy answers a question during a televised Mississippi U.S. Senate debate with his opponent appointed U.S. Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith R-Miss. in Jackson Miss. Tuesday Nov. 20 2018

He's been a fan of this team for more than 40 years, but with Johnson owning the team, he's chose to financially boycott the franchise following the revelation that Johnson had donated to Mississippi U.S. Senate candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith.

Hyde-Smith, a Republican, is will run-off against Democrat Mike Espy on Tuesday for her senate seat.

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.

Gov. Phil Bryant appointed Hyde-Smith to fill retiring Republican Sen.

A 2014 Facebook post in which Hyde-Smith praises Confederate history subsequently surfaced.

Hyde-Smith campaign spokeswoman Melissa Scallan responded to the report by saying: "In their latest attempt to help Mike Espy, the gotcha liberal media has taken leave of their senses".

Hyde-Smith is the first woman to represent MS in Congress under a temporary Senate appointment since April. He had served as a cabinet secretary for former President Bill Clinton. And they foreshadow the messaging dissonance that could mark the next two years of his presidency as he faces a divided Congress - a Republican-majority Senate and a Democrat-controlled House - after two years of across-the-board Republican power. The victor Tuesday gets the final two years of a six-year term. 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. Trump won 58 percent of the state's vote in 2016, and Hyde-Smith has tied herself closely to his presidency.

Espy tells voters Hyde-Smith's election would be bad for the state's image and says he'd support expanded health care and work with both parties. Respected by all. We need her in Washington!.

A political action committee created by Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred donated $5,000 to Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith, the web site Popular Information reported.

Hyde-Smith is identified in a caption beneath the yearbook photograph, which shows a row of cheerleaders smiling as they lie on the ground, propped up on their elbows, as a girl dressed in what seems to be Civil War-era regalia stands in the center holding an apparent Confederate flag. The same progressive blogger who published the video later published one in which she told a small group at Mississippi State University that suppressing the votes of students at other colleges was "a great thing".

The first name of U.S. Sen.

Hyde-Smith has apologized to "anyone that was offended" by the hanging comment, saying she meant no ill will. Trump also has thanked her right back on Twitter for voting for "our Agenda in the Senate 100% of the time".

Trump defended Hyde-Smith Monday.

She then noted "this comment was twisted and it was turned into a weapon to be used against me".
