That Hyde-Smith would be ahead shouldn't come as a surprise considering her alignment with President Donald Trump, who won the state by nearly 18 points. The Democrat worked for a company that paid $2.5 million to settle a lawsuit concerning the bribing of officials in a bid to score lucrative contracts with the state prison.

The resolution refers to the Civil War as "The War Between the States".

In addition to her controversial comments, Hyde-Smith has also faced other accusations of racism as events from her past have surfaced in recent days. "I have stood up for you and you know I will continue to stand up for the conservative values of MS". That's where the similarities end.

On Saturday, another report delved into Hyde-Smith's work as a legislator and found she once praised a Confederate soldier for his work to "defend his homeland".

Hyde-Smith posted the photos of herself at Beauvoir to Facebook, with the caption: "Mississippi history at its best!"

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. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith rallied at the Magnolia Civic Center to mobilize voters.

In the final weeks of campaigning, race has become a dominant issue.

The deal has drawn concerns from Vice President Leni Robredo and several senators as its full details have yet to be released. But the Foreign Secretary said he could lift the moratorium, but would need a go-signal from President Rodrigo Duterte .

"They want to cut our Social security and Medicare".

RRH Elections, with Bold Blue Campaigns and JMC Analytics & Polling, showed Hyde-Smith with a 54 percent to 44 percent lead on Espy, with a margin of error of 4 percent. She has since apologized, but has lost support from several corporations, including Walmart.

On health care, Espy believes in expanding funding of Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program, lowering the cost of prescription drugs, and bringing down insurance premiums, high deductibles, and placing caps on individual health costs.

Trump defended Hyde-Smith Monday.

"My approach is MS first", Espy said at last week's debate. Johnson is free to support and donate his money to any candidate or cause he chooses, and the same can be said for Breton. Maybe we want to make it just a little more hard.

Hyde-Smith has Trump's full backing, and the president is planning to travel to MS on November 26 to campaign for her, saying she is an "outstanding person" who is "needed in D.C". Trump also has thanked her right back on Twitter for voting for "our Agenda in the Senate 100% of the time". "That means that MS over party, MS over person - I don't care how powerful that person might be". "She's going to be a great senator". The group says on its website that "The preservation of liberty and freedom was the motivating factor in the South's decision to fight the Second American Revolution".

Later, at a Christmas-themed rally in Biloxi, where Trump emerged on the stage from a chimney, he said that Democrats want to impose an "extreme job-killing agenda" and that a vote for Espy would be a vote for a "Democrat agenda of socialism and open borders".
