Nooses, Hate Signs Found On Mississippi Capitol Grounds Day Before Contentious Runoff

Nooses, Hate Signs Found On Mississippi Capitol Grounds Day Before Contentious Runoff

Fox News is live streaming Trump's rally in Tupelo below.

Hyde-Smith gave birth to her and her husband's only child, Anna Michael, at 39 years old. He also contended, despite the GM news, that jobs are "coming into MS - and everywhere else, by the way".

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

He blamed countries in Central and South America for large flows of migrants trying to reach and enter the United States.

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

But on Monday, he painted Democrats as radical and unsafe as he stumped for Republican Sen.

Hyde-Smith promised to represent "every Mississippian" regardless of whom they voted for, and said, "I'm going to do my very best to make you proud". During the debate last week, she boasted about how she will support his agenda and in her short time in the Senate has voted for his administration's priorities 100 percent of the time. She said the hanging remark was an "exaggerated expression of regard" for the supporter and apologized "to anyone that was offended", adding that there was "no ill will, no intent whatsoever" in her remarks.

We urge all our CHQ friends and readers in MS to heed President Trump's warning: Don't take anything for granted, be sure to vote for Republican Cindy Hyde-Smith in today's Senate run-off.

Third generation Myalup cattle farmer Geoff Pearson said Knickers' startling size had saved him a trip to the abattoir. Pearson told The Guardian he is unsure what contributed to Knickers' massive size; it's just some "freaky thing".

Hyde-Smith, 59, finished first in the general election among four candidates on November 6, but did not receive more than 50 percent of the vote, which triggered the runoff.

Democrats have mounted an all-out effort to defeat Hyde-Smith, who was appointed to the seat by Gov. Phil Bryant when former Sen. Whoever wins the election will fill the last two years of Cochran's term, and then have to run again in 2020.

The result will finalize the balance of power in the US Senate. He painted Democrats as a party of "caravans and crime", a reference to the groups of Central American migrants he turned into a midterm issue and the criminal acts he claims - without evidence or supporting data - would follow the groups into the US if allowed to cross the border and stay. A separate video showed her talking about "liberal folks" and making it "just a little more difficult" for them to vote. They say surveys have consistently shown her with a lead ranging from the mid-single digits to the low double digits.

At the debate with Hyde-Smith, Espy embraced the slogan "Mississippi first", a transparent tribute to Trump, declaring, "Mississippi first means I value MS over everything else - over party, over persons, over everybody". He also called for a "strong immigration policy".

So, chalk this up as failure number two on MLB's part to explain its contribution to Hyde-Smith. But none of that has bothered the president, who in recent days has praised the senator. She's done a great job.

President Donald Trump heads Monday to MS in a bid to save the Senate campaign of a Republican whose racially insensitive comments sparked a backlash. Democrats reclaimed the House of Representatives in the midterm elections. He has also bragged about campaigning for 10 GOP candidates, saying he helped nine of them win.

State officials said the nooses were accompanied by handwritten signs mentioning lynchings and Tuesday's special Senate runoff, which has drawn attention to Mississippi's history of racially motivated violence.
