WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.) was today sworn in to complete the Senate term of former U.S. Senator Thad Cochran (R-Miss.).  
 
“It is a great honor to serve Mississippi as a United States Senator.  I am committed to doing everything I can to represent the priorities of all Mississippians, and will continue to work to advance the needs of our state and the nation,” Hyde-Smith said. 
 
Hyde-Smith, the first woman elected to represent Mississippi in Washington, D.C., took the oath of office administered by Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), President pro tempore of the Senate, shortly after the Senate gaveled into session on Monday.  Hyde-Smith won a special election and runoff in November to fulfill the remaining two years of Cochran’s term.
