Still, strategists believe Hyde-Smith is poised to win given Mississippi's historically conservative leanings: It has not elected a Democrat to the U.S. Senate since 1982 and Trump received 58 percent of the state's vote during the 2016 presidential election.

Cindy Hyde-Smith has drawn scrutiny for saying at a November 2 campaign event that she would attend a public hanging if invited.

It will be an uphill battle for Espy, as President Donald Trump won MS in 2016 by about 18 points.

It appears that Hyde-Smith was attending school somewhere else when the Lawrence Academy opened, meaning she transferred there deliberately.

A Democrat running for U.S. Senate in MS says he would bring experience of "diversity" and "inclusion" to the job, and he thinks the Republican he's trying to unseat has a background lacking in those qualities.

Hyde-Smith and Espy debated Tuesday night.

In addition, the former lobbyist and US agriculture secretary under President Bill Clinton collected $750,000 after lobbying on behalf of an African despot now on trial for crimes against humanity at the International Criminal Court.

Thad Cochran, which made her the first woman to represent MS in the U.S. Senate. Thad Cochran (R), who stepped down for health reasons. Kamala Harris of California and Cory Booker of New Jersey and former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick - have been to MS to campaign for the former congressman who served as agriculture secretary in 1993 and 1994 under Democratic President Bill Clinton.

It's the last Senate race of the 2018 election season, in which Republicans held onto their slim majority in the Senate, but lost control of the House. She has been facing intense scrutiny recently over having attended a white private school that was founded after court-ordered school desegregation of public schools.

The special election victor will serve the final two years of Cochran's term. The donation was made Friday, after Hyde-Smith had already come under fire for controversial comments made on the campaign trail.

At rallies in Tupelo and then in Biloxi, Trump praised Hyde-Smith and called on voters to send her back to Washington.

Cindy Hyde-Smith had her lead in the first round of voting slashed after she was recorded telling a supporter: "If he invited me to a public hanging, I'd be on the front row". Trump said she made it somewhat "in jest" and that she felt bad about it. Joni Ernst, Hyde-Smith spoke to Republican stalwarts at a Meridian museum Sunday afternoon.

Hyde-Smith, who was appointed by Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant to replace retired Sen. 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".

"For anyone that was offended by my comments, I certainly apologize". Her campaign said it was a joke.

Trump defended Hyde-Smith Monday.

Walmart asked Hyde-Smith to return a $2,000 campaign contribution because of the hanging remark.

Trump had defended her comments by saying they were "said in jest", adding "she is a tremendous woman and it is a shame that she has to go through this".
