"We need someone who respects lives of lynching victims", one sign read. She said the hanging remark was an "exaggerated expression of regard" for the supporter and apologized "to anyone that was offended", adding that there was "no ill will, no intent whatsoever" in her remarks.
Such donations have come under fire due to Hyde-Smith's recent comments and actions making jokes out of lynchings and glorifying Confederate history.
