GOP Senator Who Made ‘Hanging’ Remark Attended ‘Segregated’ Academy

ASSOCIATED PRESS

President Donald Trump is set to travel to the state for two rallies with Hyde-Smith on Monday.

Trump told the crowd in Tupelo that "we don't want those people in Mississippi" and that immigrants are "not coming through anymore" illegally. "They have stooped to a new low, attacking her entire family and trying to destroy her personally instead of focusing on the clear differences on the issues between Cindy Hyde-Smith and her far-left opponent". President Donald Trump will travel to MS on Monday to attend two rallies for Hyde-Smith, and Mississippi's Republican establishment is trying to push her to victory. Hyde-Smith has had several stumbles, defending herself after a photograph emerged of her wearing a replica Confederate soldier's hat, as well as a video of her praising a supporter by saying she would sit on the front row of a public hanging with him. There's typically a decrease in ballots cast between the first election and a runoff.

Major League Baseball also recently made a $5,000 donation to Hyde-Smith but has since rescinded their donation due to the corresponding backlash, according to ESPN.

The senate race is the final one of the midterms and if Hyde-Smith wins, she will become the first woman elected to Congress in Mississippi.

The companion Camilla Parker-Bowles is convinced that his daughter-in-law is a real asset for the future of the royal family. Unlike Kate Middleton , who tends to stick with a sensible (nude) heel, Meghan goes big when it comes to footwear.

Hyde-Smith should enjoy a decided advantage if she can convince McDaniel's voters to support her in the runoff election on November 27.

Cindy Hyde-Smith is once again under fire for a race-related issue, after the Jackson Free Press in MS reported Friday that she graduated from a high school segregation academy. Kamala Harris traveled to MS to support Espy, who is attempting to duplicate the longshot election of a Democratic senator in neighboring Alabama a year ago. Many have taken the remark to be inappropriate due to Mississippi's history of racial violence. Even on trade and tariffs, where Trump's decisions could hurt MS farmers, Hyde-Smith praised the president. 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 last two years of the Senate term begun by the now-retired Thad Cochran hangs in the balance Tuesday as voters decide between Republican U.S. Sen.

The victor Tuesday finishes the final two years of a term started by Republican Sen.

He told reporters that the deal was "the best possible", but the summit "is neither a time of jubilation nor of celebration". The parliamentary vote is likely to take place in early-to-mid December. "If there's an agreement, we'll obviously go".

Hyde-Smith said the "public hanging" comment was "an exaggerated expression of regard" for a fellow cattle rancher.

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

Yearbook photos from Lawrence Academy, which is now closed, show Hyde was a cheerleader for a team that had a rebel mascot who carried a Confederate battle flag.

Former Vice President Joe Biden has endorsed Espy, and three Democrats who could run for president in 2020 - Sens. She had previously served as Mississippi's Agriculture Commissioner.

Diabetes: 40 Million Will Be Left Without Insulin By 2030, Study Predicts
According to a American Diabetes Association , prices of insulin have nearly tripled between 2002 and 2013. The study was published Tuesday in the journal The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology.

It's the last U.S. Senate race to be decided in 2018 and will determine whether Republicans pad their slim majority.
