Appointed ‘Republican’ Senator From Mississippi Ignores Comment Requests from Hometown Newspaper



An appointed Senator from Mississippi is gaining a reputation for her campaign’s unresponsiveness to media requests, including from her hometown news website.

According to Adam Northam of The Daily Leader, a Brookhaven, MS news website, Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith has still not responded to a request for comment from a story written on July 20. Brookhaven is Hyde-Smith’s hometown.

Big League Politics recently reached out to the Hyde-Smith campaign regarding comments made by Jordan Russell, Hyde-Smith’s campaign spokesman who called President Donald J. Trump a “con artist” while working for the Marco Rubio campaign in 2016.

“We have a strong grassroots team in Mississippi and our momentum is growing because voters are looking for a candidate to unite the party and defeat Hillary Clinton Donald Trump scammed hard-working Americans by taking their money for his phony Trump University, and he is scamming conservatives now by acting as if he is one of them,” said Jordan Russell, Hyde-Smith’s campaign manager. “Many Mississippians are seeing through his con artist act and are supporting Marco Rubio.”

Russell never responded to BLP’s comment request on whether he still thinks Trump is a con artist.

The Hyde-Smith campaign is developing a reputation for being unresponsive to media requests, which should serve as a warning sign to constituents whom she claims to serve.

But that is not the only troubling aspect of Hyde-Smith’s candidacy. She is a former Democrat who switched parties in 2011 in order to run for statewide office in deep red Mississippi. She was appointed by Gov. Phil Bryant to replace retired Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) earlier this year.

Big League Politics reported:

Her campaign and record as an elected official are not exactly befitting of a Republican. She supported Hillary R. Clinton for president in 2008. As the Mississippi State Commissioner of Agriculture, she lobbied the State Attorney General’s office for gun control measures, including “random searches” on state fairgrounds. Her staffers were even recently caught campaigning at an event for a Democrat candidate in the same race. But most egregiously, Hyde-Smith’s campaign has been bankrolled by leftist Silicon Valley billionaire.

Sean Parker, billionaire founder of Napster, the online file sharing service, and early investor in Facebook, has donated $250,000 to the Victory Fund PAC, aimed at getting Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) elected, according to Pro Publica.

BLP Passage Ends.

Hyde-Smith will square off with America First constitutional conservative  State Sen. Chris McDaniel (R-Ellisville) and two Democrats in a special nonpartisan election on November 6.

TROLLED: Pelosi For Prison Banner Flown Over Her San Francisco District

It calls for Pelosi to be locked up for her “crimes against America.”



Liberals in San Francisco were immediately triggered Thursday morning by the sight of an impossible-to-miss 25-foot by 80-foot “Pelosi for Prison” banner flying in the spy upon the left-wing stronghold.

The banner, paid for by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s Republican opponent, DeAnna Lorraine, directs those who see it to a petition, located at, which calls for Pelosi to be jailed for her “crimes against America.” With the banner coming just a day after President Donald Trump’s acquittal in the Pelosi-driven impeachment hearings, it is a sign that some conservatives are moving off of the defensive, and instead focusing on offensive attacks against left-wing figures like Pelosi.

Speaking with Big League Politics, Lorraine states that the banner was a part of her plan to expose Pelosi’s record while in the Congress, along with her “egregious crimes against America.”

“I am running for Congress to clean out the corruption that is Nancy Pelosi. Instead of caring for the people of
San Francisco and advancing their issues on a national scale, she spends her time conducting asinine
impeachments and investigations that amount to absolutely nothing” said DeAnna. “It’s past time we start
hitting her hard on her record of poor leadership and egregious crimes against America, and I look very much
forward to retiring her in November.”

This banner definitely gets that message across, and surely has Nancy Pelosi shaking with rage.
