Hyde-Smith discusses working while campaigning

Some are wondering how Mississippi’s newest senator, Cindy Hyde-Smith, is balancing campaigning while also working in Washington D.C. Hyde-Smith visited Mississippi last week and said campaigning is going very well.

“It’s doing what you’re supposed to do during the week, but it’s also really beneficial that I can come home and I can talk about what we did this week because I was there,” said Hyde-Smith. “So when you campaign and you’re current and you’re up to date and you have those connections of your colleagues you just have to get out there and let the people know you’re working really hard for the right reasons, which are those conservative goals that Mississippians share and that we’re making things happen but not letting up.”

She said she is raising a lot of money and covering the whole state and also working really hard on the farm bill right now.

“We finally have the votes there that we can bring them up to vote on on the full senate,” said Hyde-Smith. “We’re voting and getting as many confirmed as we can so what we’re working with toward November is just the path that we’re on while we’ve got the majority of the votes and getting as much done as we can.”

Hyde-Smith said her goal is to start strong and finish strong.
