JACKSON — Mississippi Republican Party (MSGOP) Chairman Lucien Smith released the following statement on tonight’s U.S. Senate debate between Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith and Secretary Mike Espy:
“Tonight we saw a clear contrast between the two candidates,” said Chairman Lucien Smith. “Cindy Hyde-Smith spent the night highlighting her conservative record working alongside the president in support of a pro-growth agenda. Her opponent underlined his liberal policy preferences, opposing border security and lower taxes while reiterating his support for Obamacare.
“As was shown tonight, Mike Espy will be another vote for Chuck Schumer’s efforts to obstruct the president and roll back conservative policy successes. Cindy Hyde-Smith is a candidate of integrity who will continue working to advance good policy in the U.S. Senate by supporting our military, protecting the sanctity of life, defending our Second Amendment rights and helping grow our economy through lower taxes and less intrusive regulation. Tonight’s debate confirmed that Cindy Hyde-Smith is the clear choice on November 27th.”
