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

Cindy Hyde-Smith, who is facing Democrat Mike Espy in a Tuesday runoff election that could pad the GOP's current 52-47 advantage in the Senate.

It's the last U.S. Senate race to be decided in 2018 and will determine whether Republicans pad their slim majority.

Hyde-Smith has a double-digit lead on Espy in a poll conducted from November 19-21 and November 23-24.

She is up against Democrat Mike Espy, a former congressman and US agriculture secretary who is seeking to become Mississippi's first black senator since Reconstruction.

"I would encourage everyone who has social conscience about the condition that exists in this country to boycott the Giants as long as this person is a principal owner", said Burris.

Espy was introduced by Ayanna Pressley, a Massachusetts Democrat who will join Congress next year after unseating an incumbent in the primary.

A Democrat running for U.S. Senate in MS says he would bring experience of "diversity" and "inclusion" to the job, and he thinks the Republican he's trying to unseat has a background lacking in those qualities.


The Office co-creator Michael Schur tweeted: 'Hi Rob Manfred my name is Mike and I'm extremely curious why you gave Senate Candidate Cindy Lynchy Jokey Lady five thousand dollars. He's been a fan of this team for more than 40 years, but with Johnson owning the team, he's chose to financially boycott the franchise following the revelation that Johnson had donated to Mississippi U.S. Senate candidate Cindy Hyde-Smith. Even on trade and tariffs, where Trump's decisions could hurt MS farmers, Hyde-Smith praised the president.

Hyde-Smith and Trump are set to appear together at a late Monday afternoon event in the northeastern city of Tupelo, best known as the birthplace of Elvis Presley. "Mississippi, Vote for @cindyhydesmith on Tuesday. We need to come out tomorrow in such numbers, such strength, marching to the polls like it's a holiday", he said.

Jones spoke Sunday evening on a conference call for the Espy campaign. He is trying to unseat Republican Sen. Several dozen people waited in a line that stretched out of the Hinds county courthouse in downtown Jackson, including a retired home economics teacher, Illinois Cox Littleton, 92, who said she voted for Espy because she considers him "a highly intelligent man". Joni Ernst, an Iowa Republican. "So, I think that's a great idea".

Hyde-Smith has made some controversial comments during her campaign, including making a reference to a "public hanging".

"When you apologize to someone, look them in the eye", Espy said.

With the MS runoff election underway, the young voter turnout is expected to hold a lot of weight. More than 43,000 absentee ballots have been requested, and that number could increase as final numbers are tabulated.

Officials say this is particularly high for absentee voting for a run-off election. There's typically a large decrease in ballots cast between the first election and a runoff. MS last elected a Democrat to the Senate in 1982.
