Cindy Hyde-Smith Wins Mississippi Senate Seat
I guess I have a lot to learn about politics, or at least stop the wishful thinking since with the racist controversy surrounding the Republican Senator from Mississippi Cindy Hyde-Smith, she still defeated the Democratic challenger Mike Espy in the runoff election.
“She votes to make America great again and she votes for America first. Cindy is so important, so respected, we’ve got to send her back.” President Trump at a campaign rally for Hyde-Smith.
Hyde-Smith faced racial scrutiny when she said that she would attend a public hanging, later saying she was joking, but of course, Espy is black and we are talking about Mississippi where more lynch mob hangings took place than in any other state.
Hyde-Smith’s comments resulted in Wal-Mart, AT & T, and Major League Baseball requesting that their campaign donations be returned. The owner of the San Francisco Giants Charles Johnson, continued his support of Hyde-Smith.
Hyde-Smith seems like the older female version of Ron DeSantis, Florida’s new governor who the day after winning the Republican candidacy, said he didn’t want to be “monkeying up” the election. His challenger, Tallahassee mayor Andrew Gillum is also black.
Hyde-Smith is now the first woman elected to the Senate from Mississippi, a seat held by Republicans since 1982, resulting in Republicans having fifty-three seats in the next Congress.
“Make no mistake—tonight is the beginning, not the end. When this many people show up, stand up, and speak up, it is not a loss. It is a moment. It is a movement,” Espy said. “And we are not going to stop moving our state forward just because of one election. I look forward to finding new ways to do just that.” – Mike Espy.
