Mississippi Republican Governor Phil Bryant has named the state’s agriculture commissioner, Cindy Hyde-Smith, to serve as U.S. senator as fellow Republican Thad Cochran steps aside due to poor health. Hyde-Smith will become the first woman Mississippi has ever sent to Congress. She’s expected to begin campaigning immediately for a special election for the Senate seat in November.
