Cindy Hyde-Smith: Led the way to open foreign markets for American products

As agriculture commissioner, she modernized the Department of Agriculture and Commerce by being a strong leader who knew how to stay on budget and get results for our farmers and small businesses. Cindy led the fight to open foreign markets for American products to be sold overseas, and she fought for country-of-origin food labeling. According to the state Legislature, she ran a "model agency" based on performance and program effectiveness.
