Mississippi PAC Launches Brutal Attack Ad Against Cindy Hyde-Smith
Remember Mississippi PAC launched a brand new ad Tuesday, and it was brutal for former Democrat and appointed Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS).
“There’s a saying in the South,” the ad begins. “If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s probably a duck.”
Hyde-Smith is quacking… loudly.
“Cindy Hyde-Smith voted for tax increases as your Democrat State Senator, worked to get big government healthcare passed as a D.C. lobbyist, and she voted for Hillary Clinton for president,” the ad said as a duck quacks in the background.
“Cindy Hyde-Smith now calls herself a Republican, but if you act and vote like a Democrat your whole life, you’re probably a Democrat,” the ad finishes.

Big League Politics has reported extensively on Hyde-Smith’s history as a Democrat.
Aside from what is mentioned in the Remember Mississippi ad, she supported gun control during her tenure as State Commissioner of Agriculture.
“Your letter requests our office’s opinion on the following issues:” wrote the Mississippi Attorney General’s office in response to Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith’s request. “Can the MFC and the Department prohibit the carrying of weapons, concealed or not concealed, on the Mississippi State Fairgrounds Complex and at properties of the Department, including but not limited to the Mississippi Farmers’ Market and the Mississippi Agriculture & Forestry Museum, by posting signage prohibiting the carrying of a weapon?”
In case that request was denied, Hyde-Smith suggested random searches of patrons of the fairgrounds for weaponry. In the end, both requests were denied by the Attorney General.
“You also ask our opinion about other procedures that might be deemed to be random searches of individuals entering the gates at the State Fairgrounds Complex,” the letter says. The issue is only answerable by reference to federal law and cases construing the Fourth Amendment to the United States Constitution.”
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.
Parker was a large Hillary Clinton donor, too. According to the New York Times, he “gave nearly $300,000 to a joint fund-raising committee for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign and dozens of state Democratic parties.”
Hyde-Smith faces populist, America-First candidate State Sen. Chris McDaniel (R-Ellisville) and two Democrats in a special nonpartisan election on November 6.
McDaniel is on board with President Donald J. Trump’s agenda, and recently called for Hyde-Smith to stop taking orders from Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and fully fund a border wall, one of Trump’s main campaign promises.
“Cindy Hyde-Smith has been dead silent on this issue,” he said. “I’m calling on her today to stand on behalf of Mississippians; to push back against Mitch McConnell, to push back against the Chamber of Commerce, and to call for the immediate funding of a wall on the southern border.”
