"So, that's a Mississippi I want to be a part of - one of diversity, one of inclusion, one of different experiences". More than 43,000 absentee ballots have been requested, and that number could increase as final numbers are tabulated.

In the November 6 primary election, Hyde-Smith received 41.5 percent of the vote, while Espy received 40.6 percent and Republican Chris McDaniel received 16.5. Cindy Hyde-Smith attended a segregation academy in high school and praised a Confederate soldier's attempts to "defend his homeland", according to reports. Like a lot of PACs that are more business-oriented than pet cause oriented, it tends to spread its money around to both Republican and Democratic candidates, with the level of its donations to each party varying with the political winds. The contribution was heavily scrutinized because Hyde-Smith thanked her host at a public appearance earlier in the month by joking, "If he invited me to a public hanging, I'd be on the front row". There is usually a large decrease in ballots cast between the first election and a runoff.

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". She and her campaign have refused to discuss the Confederate hat. The victor will finish the final two years of a term started by GOP Sen.

"The President is coming to stump for me, as we call it", Hyde-Smith said.

President Donald Trump brought back the playbook he used during the leadup to the midterm elections, warning of the dangers of illegal immigration and painting Democrats as radical "socialists", as he returned to the campaign trail Monday to try to keep a Mississippi Senate seat in GOP hands.

"For anyone that was offended by my comments, I certainly apologize", she said.

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.
