Major League Baseball wants donation returned after senator's 'public hanging' comments

Hyde-Smith reportedly graduated from the school in 1977.

"Ladies and gentlemen, we are not going back", Espy told supporters, criticizing Hyde-Smith's apology for the hanging remarks. A group photo in the 1975 edition of The Rebel - the Lawrence County Academy Yearbook - illustrates the point.

Espy said he was called "the N-word" many days during integration. She and her campaign have refused to discuss the Confederate hat.

Hyde-Smith, appointed to the post after U.S. Sen. She has been campaigning in a runoff against Democrat Mike Espy on November 27. On immigration, she says immigrants should come into the country legally. I chose to use that very hard time to learn from and try to reach out to people of all races. "So, if you compare me and that experience to Cindy Hyde and her experience, I'd rather have my experience".

The runoff election Tuesday will decide who serves the final two years of a term begun by Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith has received another donation from the baseball world - this time from the MLB front office.

Tuesday's runoff election will conclude the 2018 midterms.

Saturday was the deadline for in-person absentee voting. But on Monday, he painted Democrats as radical and risky as he stumped for Republican Sen. Thad Cochran, who resigned in April because of health problems. The victor Tuesday gets the final two years of a six-year term.

Espy is trying to become the first African-American to represent MS in the Senate since Reconstruction. MS is a traditionally red state, with the three of the four House representatives being Republican and the other senator, Roger Wicker, also being Republican. Many have taken the remark to be inappropriate due to Mississippi's history of racial violence.

The Popular Information report also stated Charles B. Johnson, the co-owner of the Giants, recently donated $2,700, the legal maximum to Hyde-Smith; and his wife, Ann, also contributed the maximum to her campaign.

"We don't want to say 'bombard, ' but we're contacting them as much as possible", Welchlin said. Segregation was not openly acknowledged at the school, she said.

Hyde-Smith said the "public hanging" comment was "an exaggerated expression of regard" for a fellow cattle rancher. Hyde-Smith apologized for the "hanging" comments during a debate earlier this week and dubbed the voting suppression comments a "joke".

The photo shows the school's mascot dressed in what appears to be a Confederate uniform holding a Confederate flag.

A spokesperson for Hyde-Smith's campaign didn't respond to requests for comment on MLB's request.

Blocks away in the eastern MS city, Democrat Mike Espy spoke to a mostly African-American crowd at a Masonic lodge.

He claimed Espy would "vote in total lockstep" with Sen.

On immigration, Trump defended the US response to the border clash on Sunday, when USA agents fired tear gas at migrants, some of whom had attempted to climb through fencing and wire separating the countries.

Cindy Hyde-Smith, the embattled GOP candidate for U.S. Senate in MS, is in hot water again.

Facing public backlash, Major League Baseball has asked Republican Mississippi Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith to return a $5,000 donation made to her campaign.
