Mississippi Senate Candidate Calls on ‘Republican’ Opponent to Return Silicon Valley Democrat Donation

Will she return hundreds of thousands from the Democrats?



A Republican candidate for U.S. Senate from Mississippi is calling on his main opponent to return donations that she received from a Democrat Silicon Valley billionaire.

“U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel is calling on Cindy Hyde-Smith to demand that her Super PAC return the $250,000 dollars accepted from one of Hillary Clinton’s largest donors, Napster and Facebook co-founder Sean Parker,” said McDaniel’s campaign in a press release.

Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-MS) was appointed by Mississippi Governor Phil Bryant to replace retired Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) earlier this year. Hyde, a former Democrat, changed her party affiliation to run for statewide office in 2011, knowing that she could not win as a Democrat in a red state.

“Parker has a long history of donating to Democratic candidates and causes, namely his $300,000 donation to Hillary Clinton when she ran against Donald Trump for President,” McDaniel said. “Parker even went as far as to hold a fundraiser for Clinton at his home the night of June 28, 2016, that banked over $1 million for her campaign. A few months later, Parker contributed to a massive effort focused on taking down Trump’s candidacy.”

Hyde-Smith is sympathetic many Democrat causes like gun control, and is already working on gaining crossover Democrat voters.

“No one from Mississippi should be accepting money from a California liberal who funded Hillary Clinton’s campaign against Donald Trump and pushes for gun control and amnesty,” McDaniel said. “She needs to return that dirty money.”

According to the press release, Hyde-Smith has received $1 million from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which pushes amnesty for illegal immigrants.

“Cindy Hyde-Smith voted for Hillary Clinton,” McDaniel’s campaign spokesman, Tanner Watson said. “She is funded by the same California liberal that funded Hillary Clinton. She fights for the same causes as Hillary Clinton. Cindy Hyde-Smith is no friend to President Trump. Quite frankly, she’s the opposite of everything he stands for.”
