    Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith smilingly posed for a photo in 2014 while wearing a Confederate cap and holding a rifle, then put the image on her Facebook page with the words "Mississippi history at its best!" That image, taken at a Mississippi museum, resurfaced Tuesday as AT&T, Leidos and Walmart joined two other companies, Union Pacific and Boston Scientific, in asking Hyde-Smith, a Republican, to return campaign contributions because of controversy over her recent jest about being willing to attend a public "hanging."

    FLOWERS, Miss. (AP) — A commercial kitchen equipment company will relocate a factory in Mississippi, investing $9.5 million and creating 250 jobs. Unified Brands, a unit of Dover Corp. of Downers Grove, Illinois, made the announcement Friday. The company says it will rent an industrial park building near Vicksburg, relocating 175 employees now in Byram and increasing total employment to 425. It will make refrigerated preparation tables, steam kettles, steamers and commercial dishwashing sinks there....
  • Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith Is Tripping All Over Herself and Dems See an Opportunity in Mississippi

    Nearly a year ago, Democrats pulled off an upset in the South against a Republican candidate hobbled by controversy. Now, they’re hoping to duplicate that feat in Mississippi, in the last Senate election of the cycle. Virtually no prognosticator has given the party much of a chance. But this past week, the Republican in the race, Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS), has been caught twice making wild and insensitive remarks: the first expressing comfort attending a public hanging; the second openly musing about suppressing Democratic votes. All of which has encouraged the party to rethink whether the long shot Democrat in...

    A review of the fundamentals in the November 27th Mississippi Senate runoff shows that Democrat Mike Espy has a big hill to climb; and the road is relatively flat and smooth for Republican incumbent Cindy Hyde-Smith. On Election Day neither candidate received the necessary 50% plus 1 vote to win so there will be a runoff between Hyde-Smith who got 41.5% and Espy who got 40.6%. Hyde – Smith could not get to 50% plus 1 vote because there was a major third candidate in the race. That candidate, Chris McDaniel ran as a Republican and drew off 146,000 votes...

    resident Donald Trump will make an eleventh-hour attempt to keep a Mississippi Senate seat in Republican hands later this month when he headlines two rallies there the day before a runoff election. His campaign organization announced Saturday the president will hold two rallies on Nov. 26 on behalf of Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith. He will be in Tupelo at 5 p.m. and then in Biloxi three hours later. Hyde-Smith faces former Democratic Rep. Mike Espy in the special election runoff after neither cleared 50 percent in the Nov. 6 jungle primary, which saw two Republicans and two Democrats run together...

    JACKSON, Miss. – At a press conference today in Jackson, National Right to Life restated its unequivocal endorsement of Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith for the U.S. Senate. Hyde-Smith faces pro-abortion former Rep. Mike Espy in a November 27 run-off election. “Cindy Hyde-Smith is the only candidate in the November 27 run-off election who represents the true pro-life values of Mississippi,” said Carol Tobias, president of National Right to Life. “Mike Espy does not.” As a member of the U.S. House of Representatives from 1988-1992, Mike Espy sided with pro-abortion Democrats dozens of times. His record includes scored votes against the Hyde...

    Election results do have consequences but who wants to be the one racking up points for the adversary, especially after showing up to fight for the good guys? After every election there’s disappointment and regret. Disappointment if a candidate loses whom you supported with all your means. Regret if you didn’t stand up strongly enough for the candidate you believe should have won. And then there’s capitulation. The question is how could a strong advocate for McDaniel turn around and try to make an argument for voting for a candidate representing the complete opposite of McDaniel’s resolute conservatism?

    The campaign sign for Republican State Senator Chris McDaniel, the conservative challenging appointed Republican US Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith in Mississippi's "Open Primary Special Election" simply says "Remember Mississippi" The smear of "racism" the GOP Establishment used on him to win a primary runoff with Democrat votes reminds us of how not different the GOP insiders from the Democrats today using "racism" directly or accusations of racism through words like "voter suppression" as in Georgia's race for Governor.

    Today I saw two polls of voting intentions for Congress tomorrow and the difference is night and day. CNN claims that the vote will be Democrats 55 percent, Republicans 42 percent. Meanwhile, Rasmussen Reports says it will be Republicans 46 percent, Democrats 45 percent. Somebody must be doing this from outside a marijuana store in Canada. Of course President Trump laid it out on Twitter today tweeting about "Fake Voter Suppression Polls" from CNN. I noticed in Florida the various MSM polls showed leads for the Democrats for US Senate and Governor but pretty narrow ones considering the notion that...

    **SNIP** As an African-American Democrat, Espy needs a strong voter turnout among black people, who make up 38 percent of the state's population. But he can't win without some white support in a conservative Southern state where voting patterns tend to break along racial lines. While most black votes go to Democrats, the white majority leans Republican. Even as prominent African-American politicians, including U.S. Sen. Cory Booker, have traveled to Mississippi to endorse him, the 64-year-old Espy says he is reaching out to all audiences with a unifying message. "I don't care about race or religion or gender or party...

    This year’s high-stakes midterm elections are fast approaching, and much ink has been spilled about a surge in women candidates running for office. Unfortunately, most of the hype has focused on only one type of woman: anti-Trump, pro-abortion, and angry about it. What about the millions of women and men who are eager to see more protections for unborn children and their mothers – who revere the Constitution and want more fair, impartial judges like Justice Kavanaugh appointed? Who is running to represent folks who not only decline the pink hats and handmaid outfits, but are happy about the direction...

    The University of Mississippi has condemned a tweet by a faculty member that called on activists to abandon civility and harass Republican senators in public. “Don’t just interrupt a Senator’s meal, y’all,” James Thomas, an assistant professor of sociology, tweeted from his @Insurgent_Prof account on Oct. 6, the day Justice Brett Kavanaugh was sworn into the Supreme Court. “Put your whole damn fingers in their salads,” he wrote. “Take their apps and distribute them to the other diners. Bring boxes and take their food home with you on the way out. They don’t deserve your civility.”

    So, tell them again, Mitch McConnell and GOP swamp, why should Mississippi settle for a never-Trumper masquerading as a republican when they could send a verified conservative and supporter of Trump's agenda to Washington? The facts about the Mississippi special election to replace Thad Cochran have been completely misrepresented by the GOP “Vote Red” campaign. Making voters believe that the senate race is the usual partisan showdown, the GOP has pressured President Trump to endorse the governor-appointed candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith who is a proven democrat in republican clothing. The MSGOP even went as far as to coerce McDaniel voters wearing...
