As a conservative, Cindy knows government does not create jobs—people and businesses in the private sector are the drivers of our economy. She is a strong supporter of free markets and private property rights. Her background as a cattle farmer gives her unique insight into the struggles of hardworking men and women. Cindy knows what it’s like dealing with overburdensome regulation by Washington, D.C. To keep our economy growing, Cindy will work with her colleagues and President Trump to roll back unnecessary rules and regulations that hinder job creation and stymie economic growth.
Cindy believes all children, including the unborn, are guaranteed the right to life by our Creator. She respects the sanctity of life and opposes taxpayer funding of abortions. As Senator, Cindy will fight for and vote to confirm judges who will interpret the law as written, and not legislate from the bench.
Stopping Illegal Immigration
Cindy believes America has the right to secure its borders and control who enters our country. She believes illegal immigration must come to an end and supports President Trump’s plans to build a wall on the America’s southwestern border and to increase funding to enforce U.S. immigration laws. Immigrants who wish to live and work here must enter our great country the same way others have in previous generations— by following the law.
As a cattle farmer, former Chairman of the Senate Agriculture Committee in the Mississippi legislature, and two-term Mississippi Commissioner of Agriculture and Commerce, Cindy knows the agriculture industry inside and out. As Agriculture Commissioner, she worked to open new markets for Mississippi’s diverse agricultural products. Agriculture is the number one economic sector in Mississippi, and nobody will be a stronger or more knowledgeable advocate in the U.S. Senate for the interests of Mississippi’s farmers and ranchers than Cindy.
Supporting our 2nd Amendment
As the owner of an enhanced-carry permit, Cindy lives the right to keep and bear arms in her everyday life. She and her family own firearms, enjoy hunting, and cherish the great outdoors. She will always stand up for our 2nd Amendment Constitutional rights.
Throughout her career, Cindy has always supported lower taxes. She believes the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act passed by the Republican Congress and signed into law by President Trump is helping unleash a wave of prosperity across America. Cindy will always fight to make sure families and businesses keep more of their hard-earned money.
Supporting the Military and Veterans
Cindy has an abiding respect and appreciation for America’s military, their families and our veterans. She will support policies that help strengthen our military to support our men and women in the Armed Forces so they have the best training and tools available to keep America safe. She also understands the sacrifices made by those who have fought to defend our nation. As such, she will work to ensure veterans and their families receive the benefits promised to them by a grateful nation.
Cindy stands with Israel, a strong ally that shares our democratic values. She recognizes Israel as an oasis of freedom, tolerance, and economic prosperity in an unstable region of the world. Cindy supports President Trump’s decision to locate the American embassy in Jerusalem and will work to strengthen U.S.-Israeli national security, economic and cultural interests.
Education and workforce training are issues Cindy cares about deeply. She believes the federal government should support states’ efforts to improve educational opportunities for their citizens, but it should not dictate how they get the job done. Mississippi does not need Washington telling it how to raise and educate its children, so she will support policies that help states, local communities, teachers and parents make decisions to improve education for our children.
