Cindy Hyde-Smith gets boost from Donald Trump at MS rally

Cindy Hyde Smith and Donald Trump

Nooses hanging from trees and hateful signs were found at the Mississippi State Capitol early Monday morning, just a day before a runoff election to decide whether a black man will hold a Senate seat in the state for the first time since 1883.

Gov. Phil Bryant said those responsible for hanging the nooses and placing the signs outside the Capitol would be "identified and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law" in an emailed statement to the Mississippi Clarion Ledger. Hyde-Smith remarked that she would go to a "public hanging," a comment she said was made in jest and eventually apologized for.

Former U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Mike Espy attends an event in Jackson, Miss., Feb. 23, 2018.

Democrats are hoping to pull off an Alabama-style upset in the state after a series of missteps from Hyde-Smith.

The NAACP website says that between 1882 and 1968, there were 4,743 lynchings in the United States, and that almost 73 per cent of the victims were black.

Oprah Winfrey Breaks Silence on Mom Vernita Lee's Death
The mother of media mogul Oprah Winfrey , Vernita Lee , died on Thanksgiving Day , 22 November, at the age of 83. The 64-year-old has been open about the hard relationship she had with her mother when she was young.

"Tuesday Nov 27th thousands of Mississippians will vote for a senator".

Republicans tend to think Hyde-Smith didn't mean what she said and reject the idea that the comment had racial overtones.

"No one twisted your comments", Espy responded.

They say the case is now under investigation.

President Trump is traveling to Tupelo and Biloxi in MS to attend rallies for Hyde-Smith.

With child coming, it's off to the suburbs for Harry, Meghan
Harry and Meghan's wedding in May set the precedent for her daughter Princess Eugenie's wedding at Windsor Castle in October. The decision is supposedly due to the fact that the royal couple is expecting their firstborn in the spring of 2019.

Dianne Swennumson and her husband have supported Republicans in the past but say they're appalled by Mr. Trump's rhetoric and behavior. But if black voters rise to 40 percent of the electorate and Espy wins nine out of 10, he needs less than a quarter of white votes to squeak out a victory.

The donation to Hyde-Smith's campaign came after a lobbyist who works for Major League Baseball couldn't attend a mid-November fundraiser for Sen.

Espy, who is a lawyer, said: "I found out later that this guy, the president, was a really bad guy".

She isn't optimistic about Espy's chances, but she's voting for him. He was tried and acquitted on 30 corruption charges, but the Mississippi Republican Party ran an ad this year that called Espy "too corrupt for the Clintons" and "too liberal for Mississippi".

It was not immediately known who put the nooses up or why.
