Two nooses were found hanging outside the Mississippi State Capitol on Monday alongside signs decrying the state's history of lynching, state police said.

GULFPORT, MISS-Republicans in MS may not be in love with Cindy Hyde-Smith, who was appointed to the Senate earlier this year after longtime Sen.

During a debate last week, Espy, who is black, said Hyde-Smith, who is white, gave the state of MS "another black eye" on racial issues after a video shared to Twitter earlier this month showed the Republican embracing cattle rancher Colin Hutchinson as she said "If he invited me to a public hanging, I'd be on the front row".

The runoff Senate victor will serve the final two years of the six-year term of now-retired Sen.

Looking to bolster its Senate majority, the GOP wheeled out its biggest gun Monday in MS as President Trump rallied to bolster Sen. The sign also read: "We need someone who respects the lives of lynch victims".

He says the matter is under investigation, and he did not immediately know what was on the signs.

Needless to say, with the amount of scrutiny that POTUS receives, Trump got dragged through the mud for this one. Then came her remarks that she'd be willing to take a front seat at a "public hanging", drawing charges of racism as she faces a black opponent in a state with an ugly history of lynchings.

Hyde-Smith, who initially refused to apologise for the hanging remark, said last week she was sorry "for anyone that was offended" and accused Espy of twisting her words for political gain. I know her. And I know she apologized. Officials say they will release pictures of the signs and nooses later Monday.

Hyde-Smith was in her second term as Mississippi's elected agriculture commissioner when Republican Governor Phil Bryant chose her to temporarily succeed longtime Republican Senator Thad Cochran, who retired in April amid health concerns.

"If Espy wins that race, it represents a huge breakthrough for America", said the Reverend Jesse Jackson, a longtime civil rights activist and former Democratic presidential candidate.

"On Tuesday, November 27th, thousands of Mississippians will vote for a Senator". "I always thought that was a great compliment".

Democrats are hoping to pull off an Alabama-style upset in the state after a series of missteps from Hyde-Smith. An election victory would see Espy become the first African-American U.S. senator from MS since Reconstruction.

"No one twisted your comments", he said at the debate.

Republican Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves, who has an office in the Capitol, called the nooses and signs 'reprehensible'.
