Cindy Hyde-Smith at Neshoba: This pin is for you

By: Sarah Ulmer - August 3, 2018

This wasn’t Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith’s first time at the Neshoba County Fair, but it is the first time she came as a U.S. Senator.

Hyde-Smith reflected on her time thus far in Washington. Recently, she had the opportunity to sit down with Judge Kavanaugh who has been nominated for the Supreme Court by President Donald Trump.

“It is the most important thing for a president to do, is to be able to nominate a Supreme Court judge,” said Hyde-Smith and she understands why the President picked this man for the job.

She said there are so many good things happening in D.C. like tax cuts, spending cuts, and the best economy the U.S. has seen in 15 years.

While she was appointed to the seat after Senator Thad Cochran stepped down, she is running to keep the seat in November’s election.

“If you want someone with a proven track record of conservative legislation that I’m the person you want to support,” said Hyde-Smith.

She said no one will work harder for Mississippians than she will. When she first made it to Washington she was given a pin by Vice President Mike Pence that Hyde-Smith will pretty much get you anywhere in the White House. But, she says that pin is not for her, it’s for the people of Mississippi so they can be heard in Washington.

“Remember, this pin is your pin,” said Hyde-Smith.
