"So, that's a Mississippi I want to be a part of, one of diversity, one of inclusion, one of different experiences ..."

More than 43,000 absentee ballots have been requested for the runoff, and that number could increase as circuit clerks continue compiling information, the MS secretary of state's office said Saturday. Trump has previously thanked Hyde-Smith for voting for "our Agenda in the Senate 100% of the time".

On Friday, the Jackson Free Press reported that Hyde-Smith attended a private high school that was founded in 1970 so that white parents could avoid attempts to integrate schools by sending their children to schools without black students. In the heavily Republican state, Hyde-Smith had always been seen as the prohibitive favorite in the race.

She also posed in a photo wearing a Confederate hat and holding a rifle that made the rounds on Facebook, and it was just uncovered that she sponsored a resolution praising Confederate soldiers' "defending their homeland." The victor of Tuesday's runoff gets the final two years of a term he started.

Hyde-Smith has established herself as an inveterate supporter of the president.

Yearbook photos from Lawrence Academy, which is now closed, show Hyde was a cheerleader for a team that had a rebel mascot who carried a Confederate battle flag.

Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith speaks in Southaven, Miss., on October 2, 2018. The caption on the post read, "Mississippi history at its best!" It's the last U.S. Senate race to be decided in 2018 and will determine whether Republicans add to their slim majority.

While Hyde-Smith apologized during a debate Tuesday night, opponents say she's at least unconsciously echoing the state's history of White supremacy, and civil rights groups have seized the moment to push Black voters to the polls.
