Conservative Miss. Senator Committed to Working toward Common-Ground Solutions to Challenges Facing the Nation

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith (R-Miss.), who today attended the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris, issued the following statement after the ceremony at the U.S. Capitol:

“I wish President Biden and Vice President Harris well as they undertake the serious challenges facing our beloved country.  

“I am committed to working with the new administration and my colleagues to find common-ground solutions to defend our nation and to rebuild an economy damaged by a pandemic that continues to claim too many of our fellow citizens.  Overcoming these challenges will require the Senate, now divided 50-50, to work together.  This is what the American people expect and deserve even in the face of the divisions that define our national politics.

“Finally, as a conservative, I am grateful for the good accomplished by President Trump and his administration.  I believe our national path forward can, and should, build on those achievements in the months and years ahead.”
