RPAC, the political arm of the National Association of REALTORS®, announced its endorsement of Cindy Hyde-Smith for United States Senate, following a recommendation from MARPAC, the Mississippi Association of REALTORS® Political Action Committee. Mississippi REALTORS® 2018 President Karen Glass cited Hyde-Smith’s dedication to homeownership issues and private property rights during her tenure in the Mississippi Senate and then later as Agriculture Commissioner as the primary reason for their support. “Senator Cindy-Hyde Smith has demonstrated a commitment to working with Mississippi REALTORS®️ to strengthen communities, foster business development, and create economic opportunity for Mississippians. We appreciate her service to Mississippi and look forward to working together to advance pro-business policy,” stated Glass. “I am honored to receive this endorsement and appreciate the trust the members of these great organizations have in me. Mississippi is blessed with more than 6,000 Realtors® whose work strengthens our communities and contributes to a stronger state economy. I understand the benefits of homeownership and private property rights. As your United States Senator, I will work with these groups to ensure Washington acts to encourage economic growth through sound homeownership policies and a responsible regulatory climate for small business and industry.” The National Association of REALTORS® was founded in 1908 and is America’s largest trade association with approximately 1.2 million members including NAR’s five commercial real estate institutes and its societies and councils.
