BROOKHAVEN, Mississippi (AP) — Mississippi Agriculture Commissioner Cindy Hyde-Smith is serving on an agriculture advisory committee for Republic presidential nominee Donald Trump.
The Daily Leader reports that the 64-member committee includes chairmen of the U.S House and Senate agriculture committees, former U.S. secretaries of agriculture, current and former governors and business executives.
Hyde-Smith raises beef cattle near Brookhaven. She was elected to the state Senate as a Democrat in 1999 and served three terms before changing parties and being elected Mississippi’s agriculture commissioner in 2011. She won a second term in 2015, and is the first woman in the job.
At the invitation of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Hyde-Smith will travel to China in September as part of a trade mission.
