SF Giants Owner Donates To Controversial Senate Candidate

Trump rallies Hyde Smith voters as Espy pushes turnout Yearbook cheerleader pic allegedly shows GOP Sen. Hyde-Smith at 70s high school segregation academy

Major League Baseball has joined a long list of donors to ask Cindy Hyde-Smith for their money back after the Republican candidate for US Senate in MS made comments about attending a "public hanging".

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

"She stood up to the Democrat smear machine", Trump said, praising her for voting to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

Trump predicted a big day on Tuesday for Hyde-Smith and the Republican Party.

And in the final weeks of the campaign, race has become a dominant issue.

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.

MS has a history of racially motivated lynchings and violence against people who sought voting rights for black citizens. Cindy Hyde-Smith has received another donation from the baseball world - this time from the MLB front office.

Tuesday's victor will finish the final two years of the term begun by Republican Sen.

In the November 6 primary election, Hyde-Smith received 41.5 percent of the vote, while Espy received 40.6 percent and Republican Chris McDaniel received 16.5. 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.

Chinese consulate in Pakistan attacked by men armed with hand grenades
Pakistani police say the death toll from a bombing at an open-air food market in the country's northwest has risen to 25. Eyewitnesses reported seeing a blast, and local TV channels have broadcast images of a plume of smoke.

Hyde-Smith, who was appointed by Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant to replace retired Sen.

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

After the event in Tupelo, best known as the birthplace of Elvis Presley, Hyde-Smith and Trump flew to the Gulf Coast for a larger rally in Biloxi where thousands of Trump supporters were waiting.

"Democrats will also destroy your health care by inviting caravan after caravan after caravan" of immigrants into the country illegally, he claimed, warning they would wreak havoc and bankrupt the Treasury Department.

It will be an uphill battle for Espy, as President Donald Trump won MS in 2016 by about 18 points. The former congressman was agriculture secretary under President Bill Clinton.

For Espy, turnout is key. 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. But if Black voters rise to 40 percent of the electorate and Espy wins 9 out of 10, he needs less than a quarter of White votes to squeak out a victory.

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

"I'm going to be the senator for everyone", Espy said. "That means that MS over party, MS over person - I don't care how powerful that person might be".
