Vote to keep Hyde-Smith as senator

As farmers, business owners, and community leaders here in Mississippi, we support Cindy Hyde-Smith for U.S. Senate on Nov. 6.  Since Governor Phil Bryant appointed her to fill the seat vacated by Senator Thad Cochran, Cindy’s work in the Senate has shown us that she is putting her lifelong conservative principles to work fighting for values and best interests of all Mississippians.

Cindy has earned President Trump’s unequivocal endorsement.  She has a 100 percent voting record supporting the President’s agenda to rebuild our military, secure our borders, and encourage job creation by rolling back overreaching federal regulations.  She proudly fought for the confirmation of Brett Kavanaugh to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court and voted to confirm dozens of the President’s judicial nominees.

We appreciate that Cindy is a devout Christian, who lives by the Christian values we hold dear.  She has been endorsed by many conservative state leaders like Governor Bryant, as well as the National Right to Life and Susan B. Anthony List.  Also, the National Rifle Association has thrown its support behind Cindy because she has never wavered from her lifelong fight to protect our Second Amendment rights to lawfully own and bear arms.

The bottom line is that Cindy Hyde-Smith is already using the experience and determination she first brought to the state senate and then to the Mississippi Agriculture and Commerce Department to fight for us as our U.S. Senator in Washington.  Beyond her public service, her appeal is only strengthened when considering the successful farming and livestock business she has built in rural Lincoln County with her husband Mike and daughter Anna-Michael.  Most importantly, she knows when the government needs to get out of the way and where it might be able to help.

We believe it’s time for our fellow citizens to make it official and elect Cindy as the first woman elected to represent the great state of Mississippi in Washington.  Our state has a proud tradition of electing strong people to serve us in the U.S. Senate and Cindy Hyde-Smith has shown she will  uphold this tradition and fight for all Mississippians.

These are some of the reasons we are convinced Mississippi should vote to keep Cindy Hyde-Smith as our U.S. Senator on Nov. 6.
