Final campaigning is crucial for candidates Cindy Hyde-Smith and Mike Espy

The measure, which was unearthed by CNN's KFile during a review of Hyde-Smith's legislative history, is the latest in a series of issues that have surfaced during her campaign, many of which have evoked Mississippi's dark history of racism and slavery.

Cindy Hyde-Smith is once again under fire for a race-related issue, after the Jackson Free Press in MS reported Friday that she graduated from a high school segregation academy.

It will be an uphill battle for Espy, as President Donald Trump won MS in 2016 by about 18 points. Hyde-Smith was captured in a viral video making remarks about attending a "public hanging".

Gov. Phil Bryant appointed Hyde-Smith to fill retiring Republican Sen.

Hyde-Smith is in a tight runoff Tuesday against Democrat Mike Espy, a former congressman and agriculture secretary under President Bill Clinton.

The historic contest features Hyde-Smith, who would be the first woman elected to Congress from MS, against Espy, who's vying to become the state's first black senator since Reconstruction.

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

The Jackson Free-Press reported a story Friday that explored Hyde-Smith's time at one of Mississippi's so-called segregation academies-schools established throughout the South by white parents trying to avoid public school integration. The victor Tuesday gets the final two years of a six-year term.

Spokeswoman Melissa Scallan said the Hyde-Smith campaign had no comment about the Beauvoir photos.

The league said in a statement Sunday it was revoking a $5,000 donation it had made to Hyde-Smith.

The donation was controversial because Hyde-Smith recently told a crowd at a campaign event that she would be "in the front row of a public hanging", if invited.

"She stood up to the Democrat smear machine", Trump said, praising her for voting to confirm Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court. Hyde-Smith has held the seat since Cochran's retirement. On immigration, she says immigrants should come into the country legally. The newspaper included photos from the school's yearbook, including a group photo of the cheerleading squad, of which Hyde-Smith was a member. Jones said he has been "an independent voice for the state of Alabama", and Espy would be the same for Mississippi.

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

A day after U.S. border agents deployed tear gas on a group of migrants after some tried to charge the U.S. -Mexico border, Trump returned to the campaign scare talk that had largely disappeared following the November 6 midterms. She is an outstanding person who is strong on the Border, Crime, Military, our great Vets, Healthcare & the 2nd A [mendment]. "She's a person that loves the people of MS, she loves the people of this country".
