In the Senate, Doty is chair of the Senate Energy Committee and serves on the Judiciary-A committee. She is currently in her second term in the Mississippi Senate. She holds an undergraduate degree from the Mississippi University for Women and a law degree from the Mississippi College School of Law.

Doty said she hoped to bring what she had learned in Jackson to Washington.

“I’m the only one in the race with any legislative experience, and I know how difficult it is to get anything done, even in the Mississippi Legislature,” Doty said. “We all know how difficult it is to get things done in D.C., you know, you go up there, and you’re one of 435 members of congress. Even if you say ‘I’m going to do this, and I’m going to get this done,’ in reality, you’ve got to know how to work with different groups within your own party and across the aisle.”

Doty is a conservative with a 100 percent pro-life voting record. She plans to fully support Second Amendment rights, and supports the repeal and replacement of the Affordable Care Act. She also plans to stand firm on immigration legislation.
