By: Frank Corder - April 29, 2021

Watch the President’s full speech and the Republican Response below.

President Joe Biden delivered his first address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday evening, highlighting what he believes to be successes from his Administration’s first 100 days in office and outlining his legislative agenda for the months ahead.

Mississippi’s federal delegation was quick to respond, with the state’s Republicans taking issue with much of what the President put forward while the lone Democrat representing the Magnolia State in D.C. seemed pleased with his party’s occupant of the White House.

Here’s what they had to say:

Senator Roger Wicker (R)

Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (D)

Congressman Bennie Thompson (D-MS2)

Congressman Michael Guest (R-MS3)

Congressman Steven Palazzo (R-MS4)

South Carolina Senator Tim Scott delivered the Republican Response. You can watch his statement below.
