President Donald Trump has tweeted support for U.S. Sen. Hyde-Smith was captured in a viral video making remarks about attending a "public hanging". Like a lot of PACs that are more business-oriented than pet cause oriented, it tends to spread its money around to both Republican and Democratic candidates, with the level of its donations to each party varying with the political winds.

Hyde-Smith and Espy debated Tuesday night.

Hyde-Smith campaign spokeswoman Melissa Scallan responded to the report about Hyde-Smith's high school attendance by saying: "In their latest attempt to help Mike Espy, the gotcha liberal media has taken leave of their senses".

In recent weeks, her campaign has been under increased scrutiny, including from donors, over controversial comments she has made in a race against an African American candidate and in a state with a sordid racial past and a history of lynchings.

"Ladies and gentlemen, we are not going back", Espy told supporters, criticizing Hyde-Smith's apology for the hanging remarks.

Hyde-Smith said the comment was an exaggeration, but companies, including Walmart and Union Pacific, have asked for their donations to her campaign be returned. "We need to come out tomorrow in such numbers, such strength, marching to the polls like it's a holiday", he said.
