Cindy Hyde-Smith Accepted Campaign Donation from Noted White Supremacist

Cindy Hyde-Smith Accepted Campaign Donation from Noted White Supremacist

The rally will be held at the Tupelo Regional Airport starting at 5 p.m. Doors will be open at 2 p.m.

Trump also will hold another rally with Hyde-Smith earlier in the day in Tupelo.

President 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. Now Hyde-Smith is under fire again for taking a campaign donation from Peter Zieve.

Trump's 2020 reelection campaign on Saturday announced two rallies in MS on Monday, Nov. 26 - one day before the special election to determine who will serve the final two years of former Sen. Gov. Phil Bryant appointed Hyde-Smith, a former state agriculture commissioner, to the Senate post after U.S. Sen.


In an email to employees, he once wrote, "When (our sons and daughters) choose to not repopulate and allow our wonderful country to be backfilled with rubbish from the desperate and criminal populations of the third world, I find that to be disgusting and I find those persons to make these decisions to be repulsive and I don't like them around me".

This announcement of the presidential visit comes as the senator's campaign has run into some turbulence. Mississippi's special run-off election will take place on November 27. In one, she's heard saying she'd be "on the front row" if invited by a supporter to a public hanging.

Hyde-Smith and Espy were virtually tied in a four-way race November 6 at about 41 percent, with only a little more than 8,000 votes statewide separating them. In another, she indicated support for making it "just a little more difficult" for liberal college students to vote. Hyde-Smith's campaign said in a statement she was "making a joke" and that the video was "selectively edited".
