MLB PAC Wants Money Back After Last-Minute Donation To Hyde-Smith

Trump rallies Hyde Smith voters as Espy pushes turnout

Major League Baseball is requesting a return of a $5,000 donation to a Republican candidate for U.S. Senate following her controversial comments and actions ahead of Tuesday's runoff election. Thad Cochran, who stepped down for health reasons.

Overall, Republicans in the four-way race did better than the Democrats.

In the Jones race in Alabama, some traditional Republicans voted for the Democrat.

Hyde-Smith should enjoy a decided advantage if she can convince McDaniel's voters to support her in the runoff election on November 27. The state last elected a Democrat to the Senate in 1982. The signs referred to the state's history of lynchings and the Senate race.

Trump said repeatedly Monday that Hyde-Smith had apologized for her comments and that he believed she was honest.

Trump told the crowd in Tupelo that "we don't want those people in Mississippi" and that immigrants are "not coming through anymore" illegally. That's where the similarities end.

Trump called her "a truly incredible leader and tireless champion" for Mississippi.

Espy, who was United States agriculture secretary under Bill Clinton, spoke on Saturday about how he and his twin sister were among 17 black students who integrated the all-white Yazoo City high school in 1969, graduating in 1971. While he resigned amid accusations that he improperly accepted gifts from companies regulated by the USDA, he eventually was acquitted at trial of corruption charges brought against him.

Hyde-Smith has also been caught on video making jokes about voter suppression.

McDaniel, who led field operations that boosted longshot Democrat Doug Jones to a special election victory in Alabama previous year, said Espy's campaign wants voters to focus on issues important to them.

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

MLB's donation was made on Friday, three weeks after her campaign comment. She has since apologized, but has lost support from several corporations, including Walmart.

Trump defended Hyde-Smith Monday. Cindy Hyde-Smith once promoted a measure that praised a Confederate soldier's effort to "defend his homeland" and pushed a revisionist view of the Civil War.

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". Maybe we want to make it just a little more hard.

"If he invited me to a public hanging, I'd be in the front row", Sen. She is an outstanding person who is strong on the Border, Crime, Military, our great Vets, Healthcare & the 2nd A [mendment]. Trump also has thanked her right back on Twitter for voting for "our Agenda in the Senate 100% of the time". "She read that apology, and I saw her do that". "That means that MS over party, MS over person - I don't care how powerful that person might be".

Monday's Biloxi rally is anticipated to draw hundreds of protesters, the Hill reported.

Hyde-Smith said the "public hanging" comment was "an exaggerated expression of regard" for a fellow cattle rancher.

The Communist Party USA explained plans on May 23 to subvert the Democratic Party, alongside socialist and communist organizations.
