President Trump announced that he will be traveling to MS on Monday to endorse Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith.

Trump to campaign for Republican Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith who is locked in a tight race with Democrat Mike Espy; analysis from Michael Meehan, former chief of staff for Sen.

President Donald Trump has tweeted support for U.S. Sen.

In recent days, Hyde-Smith has been asked to explain why she attended a private, nearly all-white school, dozens of which sprang up across the South to counter court-ordered school desegregation in the 1970s. A second Republican candidate running as an independent split the rightwing vote in that poll, making a Democratic gain unlikely. She's up against Democratic former Congressman Mike Espy, a former USA agriculture secretary vying to become the first black senator from the state since Reconstruction.

Blocks away in the eastern MS city, Democrat Mike Espy spoke to a mostly African-American crowd at a Masonic lodge. Thad Cochran, who resigned in April because of health problems. Kamala Harris of California and Cory Booker of New Jersey and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick - have been to MS to campaign for the former congressman who served as agriculture secretary in 1993 and 1994 under Democratic President Bill Clinton.


Hyde-Smith has drawn fire for attending a white private school that was founded after court-ordered school desegregation of public schools.

"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".

Scallan said the Hyde-Smith campaign had no comment about the Beauvoir photos.

Hyde-Smith, who will face Black Democratic candidate Mike Espy in a runoff election Tuesday, has been under fire since she was caught at a November 2 campaign event telling a supporter that she would "be on the front row" of a "public hanging" if he invited her.

Reports into Hyde-Smith's past have also revealed a photo of her wearing a Confederate military-style hat in 2014.


It's not the first controversy that Hyde-Smith has caused. Several dozen people waited in a line that stretched out of the Hinds county courthouse in downtown Jackson, including a retired home economics teacher, Illinois Cox Littleton, 92, who said she voted for Espy because she considers him "a highly intelligent man".

About 100 anti-Trump protesters were also there, chanting "Impeach 45" as they held signs with red strikes through Hyde-Smith's name.

Hyde-Smith is a proponent of a stronger border and has supported Trump's wall. Trump also has thanked her right back on Twitter for voting for "our Agenda in the Senate 100% of the time". From what I've seen so far this cycle, it has broke more in favor of Democrats, at least as far as sitting members of Congress go. "That means that MS over party, MS over person - I don't care how powerful that person might be".

Monday's Biloxi rally is anticipated to draw hundreds of protesters, the Hill reported.
