Republican Senator Roger Wicker told his Mississippi counterpart, "If he had invited me to public meetings, I'd be in the forefront."

Wicker Sandy says Siddie Heid-Smith's statement "does not hurt his opponent's character."

Hyde Smith commented on November 2 and a video was released on Sunday. He calls these words "a reputable phrase".

His words have been criticized in Mississippi with a history of racist provocative lynching.

Hyde Smith is white. He is opposite to Democrat in November, former US Secretary of Agriculture Mike Espy.
