TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Senator Cindy Hyde-Smith was in Tupelo for a meet and greet. It was one of a few stops for the new senator.

Hyde-Smith first gave a speech at the Jacinto Festival.

Hyde-Smith tells WTVA that filling Senator Thad Cochran's shoes is tough, but she's proud of what's being done in Washington.

"So many things that we're doing are so positive," she said. "We got the Farm Bill off the Senate Floor, now it will go to the conference, which is really important to Mississippi because it is our largest industry.”

She hopes to keep her senate seat permanently by getting a win in November.
