Major League Baseball requests return of $5,000 donation to Cindy Hyde-Smith

Major League Baseball requests return of $5,000 donation to Cindy Hyde-Smith

CNN reports that as a state senator in 2007, Hyde-Smith co-sponsored a resolution that honored Effie Lucille Nicholson Pharr, whose father was a soldier in Robert E. Lee's army. A group photo in the 1975 edition of The Rebel - the Lawrence County Academy Yearbook - illustrates the point.

Hyde-Smith subsequently gave a partial apology during a November 20 debate against Espy.

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. In the past month, she has gotten in trouble for joking about lynching, which caused corporations to pull donations from her campaign, as well as wearing a Confederate costume, and advocating for voter suppression. Hyde-Smith served as a state senator from 2000 to 2012.

Trump told the crowd in Tupelo that "we don't want those people in Mississippi" and that immigrants are "not coming through anymore" illegally. I made a decision to use that very hard time to learn from and try to reach out to people of all races.

"I'd be in the front row", she exclaimed on video.

But Trump said that he will be doing two rallies for Hyde-Smith and her praised her in a tweet on Sunday. More than 43,000 absentee ballots have been requested, and that number could increase as final numbers are tabulated.

Saturday was the deadline for in-person absentee voting. But on Monday, he painted Democrats as radical and unsafe as he stumped for Republican Sen. Thad Cochran, who left office for health reasons.

The special election victor will serve the final two years of Cochran's term.

She is the first woman to represent MS in Congress, and Espy is seeking to become the first African-American to represent the state in the U.S. Senate since Reconstruction. The Democrat worked for a company that paid $2.5 million to settle a lawsuit concerning the bribing of officials in a bid to score lucrative contracts with the state prison.

Similarly, Lucas Torreira came off the bench in the first five Premier League games this season but is now a guaranteed starter. And within that, we want to see individual footballers growing and developing.

MS has a history of racially motivated lynchings and violence against people who sought voting rights for black citizens, and Hyde-Smith has been sharply criticized after two videos surfaced this month.

"We don't want to say 'bombard, ' but we're contacting them as much as possible", Welchlin said. Trump also has thanked her right back on Twitter for voting for "our Agenda in the Senate 100% of the time". "We need to come out tomorrow in such numbers, such strength, marching to the polls like it's a holiday", he said.

Although she later apologized for her remark, she accused her opponents of twisting her words for political gain.

The photo shows the school's mascot dressed in what appears to be a Confederate uniform holding a Confederate flag.

"She is an outstanding person who is strong on the Border, Crime, Military, our great Vets, Healthcare & the 2nd A. Needed in D.C", he wrote.

Hyde-Smith's campaign called the school issue a personal attack on her family meant to draw attention away from real issues.

He claimed Espy would "vote in total lockstep" with Sen. She was appointed by Gov. Phil Bryant to fill the senate seat after Cochran retired.

Former Vice President Joe Biden endorsed Espy, and three Democrats who could run for president in 2020 - Sens. Cindy Hyde-Smith, R-Miss., during a televised Mississippi U.S. Senate debate in Jackson, Miss., Tuesday, Nov. 20, 2018. Cindy Hyde-Smith, who is facing Democrat Mike Espy in a Tuesday runoff election that could pad the GOP's current 52-47 advantage in the Senate.
