LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Mississippi's Commissioner of Agriculture and Commerce spoke at a meeting of Forrest-Lamar Republican Women Tuesday.

Cindy Hyde-Smith addressed catfish inspection laws, construction of the new Jackson Trade Mart and the upcoming presidential election.

She is hopeful the GOP will unite behind the candidacy of Donald Trump.

"This is the bandwagon we want to be on, going in the direction we need to get to, looking and staying focused, but hopefully, that will happen by Thursday night (at the GOP convention)," she said.

The organization also got an update on the Trump campaign from its Mississippi State Southern Field Director Samantha Hebert Eubanks.
