U.S. Senator
    (May 10, 1959- )
    Born in Brookhaven, Mississippi
    Former Mississippi State Senator
    Appointed to fill the Senate seat left vacant after the retirement of Thad Cochran (April 1, 2018)
    Elected U.S. Senator in a run-off against Mike Espy (November 27, 2018)
    She attended a private school founded as a response to racial integration (and enrolled her daughter in a similar academy).
    When her conservative credentials were challenged by another Republican, she claimed to be unable to remember who she voted for in the 2008 Democratic primary. (Although she apparently retained enough memory to be certain it was not either Barack Obama nor Hilary Clinton.)
    She allowed herself to be photographed on social media with Confederate paraphernalia and a caption 'Mississippi history at its best!' in 2014, and then acted shocked when it was held against her four years later.
    She had to apologize after joking that she would accompany a supporter 'to a public hanging' if he invited her.
    She was caught on video joking about voter suppression with supporters at a campaign stop.
    The racially-charged nature of her Senate race resulted in corporate donors like Wal-Mart and the MLB asking for their donations to her campaign be 'refunded.'
    Her husband is a cattle rancher.
    She is the first woman to represent Mississippi in Congress.
    She graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi, but also has a degree from a local community college.
    She served as Mississippi's Commissioner of Agriculture and Commerce for four years.
    She was elected to the Mississippi State Senate in 2000 as a Democrat, but switched parties in 2010.
    She (rightly) calculated that getting elected would have to involve her embracing Donald Trump as forcefully as possible - prompting two visits to the state by the President to show his support.
