  • Yearbook cheerleader pic allegedly shows GOP Sen. Hyde Smith at 70s high school segregation academy

Cindy Hyde-Smith, R-Miss ahead of Mississippi's special election.

Hyde-Smith, a Republican, is will run-off against Democrat Mike Espy on Tuesday for her senate seat.

She used both her opening and closing statements of the only debate of the runoff campaign to promote Monday's presidential rallies, citing the online address to get tickets.

It appears that Hyde-Smith was attending school somewhere else when the Lawrence Academy opened, meaning she transferred there deliberately. The candidates are vying to replace longtime Republican Sen.

Hyde-Smith is the first woman to represent MS in Congress under a temporary Senate appointment since April.

Former U.S. Rep. Ronnie Shows, who worked at Lawrence County Academy and coached Hyde-Smith in basketball, told the Free-Press that there was "no doubt" that the schools were set up for parents who didn't want their kids to go to school with Black kids.

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

For her part, Hyde-Smith eventually apologized but said her remark was an exaggeration and was being "twisted". The victor of Tuesday's runoff gets the final two years of a term he started.

Poor play, internal fighting and trade rumors
And of course, that includes two of the team's best players, forwards John Wall and Bradley Beal . Wall is under contract through 2021-22 and Beal's deal expires the year prior.

The PAC, Office of the Commissioner of Major League Baseball PAC, donated $5,000 to Hyde-Smith's campaign on Friday, according to a Saturday FEC filing from the campaign.

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

Kyle O'Leary tweeted: On April 15 every player in MLB will wear a jersey with the number 42 for Jackie Robinson Day, and we'll all remember that while the league profits off recognizing the achievements of an African American, they gave 5K to someone who said she'd sit in the front row of a hanging'. "We need to come out tomorrow in such numbers, such strength, marching to the polls like it's a holiday", he said.

Several companies that have donated to Hyde-Smith have remained silent, including Verizon Communications, Home Depot, Chevron and Exxon Mobil. Cindy Hyde-Smith once promoted a measure that praised a Confederate soldier's effort to "defend his homeland" and pushed a revisionist view of the Civil War. Trump also has thanked her right back on Twitter for voting for "our Agenda in the Senate 100% of the time".

Lawrence County Academy was established in 1970, one year after the U.S. Supreme Court ordered MS to desegregate its schools. 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 2007 resolution wasn't the only legislation Hyde-Smith backed that would elevate Mississippi's Confederate history. "MLB has requested that the contribution be returned".

"I guess you could juxtapose my experience with her experience", Espy said between campaign appearances in Jackson.
