She is now in a runoff in MS against Democrat Mike Epsy, which will determine the final Senate seat in the 2018 midterm elections.

Hyde-Smith's runoff election against Espy, a former congressman and USA agriculture secretary, has been far closer than expected thanks to a series of racial controversies, including a photo that emerged of Hyde-Smith wearing a replica hat of a Confederate soldier, and a video in which she said she'd be "on the front row" if invited to a public hanging. Defeat would leave the Republicans with only a...

Trump was appearing at two rallies to help Hyde-Smith finish the final two years of the term started by Republican Thad Cochran.

A day after U.S. border agents deployed tear gas on a group of migrants after some tried to charge the U.S. -Mexico border, Trump returned to the campaign scare talk that had largely disappeared following the November 6 midterms.

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 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.

"Democrats will also destroy your health care by inviting caravan after caravan after caravan" of immigrants into the country illegally, he claimed, warning they would wreak havoc and bankrupt the Treasury Department.

T.I.P. penned this message to the hip-hop businessman and his family: "We'll always love you and cherish your handsome spirit". Sources told TMZ that Kim had been "suffering flu-like symptoms, and possibly pneumonia, for several weeks".

Also on Friday, the Jackson Free Press newspaper reported that Hyde-Smith attended a white private school founded in 1970, the year many MS public high schools integrated racially.

"It's not just my name on the ballot, it's our conservative values that are on the ballot Tuesday", Hyde-Smith told several dozen supporters. I am the candidate that wants to move MS into the future. The Washington Post reported that in 2001, Hyde-Smith introduced a bill as a state senator to rename a stretch of highway to what it had been called in the 1930s: the Jefferson Davis Memorial Highway, after the president of the Confederacy.

Former Vice-President Joe Biden endorsed Espy, and three Democrats who could run for president in 2020 - Sens. She's up against Democratic former U.S. Rep. Mike Espy, a former U.S. agriculture secretary vying to become the first black senator from the state since Reconstruction.

For Espy, turnout is key.

"I guess you could juxtapose my experience with her experience", Espy told The Associated Press. The state last elected a Democrat to the Senate in 1982.

The apology failed to dim the outrage, which led to seven companies, including Walmart, to ask Hyde-Smith to refund the contributions. "She's a person that loves the people of MS, she loves the people of this country".

Hyde-Smith has apologized to "anyone that was offended" by the hanging comment, saying she meant no ill will. A day earlier she received a donation from San Francisco Giants part-owner Charles B. Johnson. "MLB has requested that the contribution be returned".
