Mississippi "Republican" Governor Appoints a Democrat to Replace Retiring RINO Thad Cochran

Well -- former Democrat.

This is not 1992. The GOP has had political strength in the South for at least two decades. We don't need to take "former Democrats" recently retro-converted to Republicans as Senate appointees any longer.

If she remained a Democrat all those years, despite GOP strength in the South, I assume she had reasons to do so.

All I know is that it's crazy to say that the Republican Establishment is in bed with the Democrat Establishment.

Is she a Democrat? Well, until recently, yes. The White House opposed this appointment and told Governor Bryant that Trump would not endorse her nor campaign for her.

During a phone call Tuesday, administration officials told Bryant that Hyde-Smith’s past history as a Democrat would hobble her in the special election contest for the seat being vacated by longtime GOP Sen. Thad Cochran. Hyde-Smith switched parties in 2010 while serving in the state Senate.

The conversation was described by two White House aides with direct knowledge of the call.

The message underscored the profound misgivings the administration and senior Republicans have about the Hyde-Smith pick.

Republicans are deeply concerned that Chris McDaniel, an anti-establishment conservative state senator who is running for the seat, will use Hyde-Smith's past party affiliation against her in the race.

I'd say that's a pretty good bet.

In recent days, the White House and other senior Republicans reviewed polling conducted by the National Republican Senatorial Committee showing Hyde-Smith in third place in a prospective match-up, trailing McDaniel and a prospective Democratic candidate.

We really need to obey our Establishment Ruling Class because They're the People Who Really Understand Politics and Stuff.

I stand with Veronica Sawyer and cry out with her.
