JACKSON, MS — Mississippi Republican Party Chairman Lucien Smith released the following statement tonight following Cindy Hyde-Smith’s historic victory:
“Congratulations to Cindy Hyde-Smith for her victory tonight,” said Chairman Smith. “In the face of the best-run democratic campaign in over a decade, her success is a testament to the conservative policy she has supported and to countless hard-working conservative activists around our great state.
“Mississippi’s Republican Party has a strong history of promoting women to positions of leadership, so it is fitting that Mississippi’s first female senator should come from the Grand Old Party. I applaud her for her win today and look forward to working with her and her colleagues in our delegation as they work to make our great country even greater.”
