Andrew Scott Smith Campaign Launch


"Good evening, all who have gathered here today, those at home, and citizens of District 2:


I stand before you today not just to speak, but to spark a revolution – a revolution of ideas, action, and unity. We are at a pivotal moment, where the future of our district hangs in the balance. But together, we can tip the scales toward a future of prosperity, unity, and progress.


I stand before you, not just with a vision, but with a promise. A promise of renewal, rejuvenation, and a relentless pursuit of progress for our beloved district.


I'm Andrew Scott Smith, and I'm running for Congress not just to lead, but to serve – to serve each one of you, regardless of party lines, and to champion the causes that touch every home and every heart in the district.


We live in times of division, where the common ground seems lost. But here in District 2, we're rewriting that narrative starting today, right here. We're not just Democrats or Republicans; we are people united by our love for this land and our belief in its boundless potential.


Now, let’s talk about the 10 R's — my commitment to you, to our future:


I promise to Restore Economic Dominance: I want to reignite our economy with innovation and grit. Imagine drone ports transforming our logistics and agriculture, creating jobs that look to the future while respecting our past. Let’s rekindle the economic powerhouse that is District 2, harnessing innovation, technology, and our rich heritage to create a thriving, sustainable economy.


I promise to Rejuvenate Agriculture: Our farmers are the backbone of District 2. We'll integrate smart technology with our rich farming heritage, ensuring sustainability, prosperity, and creating an abundant harvest of opportunities for our citizens and farmers.


I promise to Revive and Rethink Healthcare: It’s no secret our current healthcare situation is a crisis to say the least. I’ll be a champion for accessible, quality, robust, and innovative healthcare for all because everyone should have access to quality healthcare that works for them and no one should be forced to choose between health and financial stability.


I promise to Restructure Education: Our children deserve the best. We’re not just funding schools; we’re fueling dreams. Education is the key to unlocking a world of opportunity.


I promise to Rebuild, Restore, and Reimagine Infrastructure: We’re not just fixing roads and bridges; we’re building the foundations of tomorrow — strong, sustainable, and smart.


I promise to Reduce Crime: Safety is paramount. We’re bolstering law enforcement with resources and community partnership, ensuring peace and protection for every resident.


I promise to Reform Taxes: Let’s simplify taxes. Fair, understandable, and just — a system that works for you, not against you.


I promise to Reinforce the Southern Border: A secure nation is a strong nation and if you don’t have borders, you don’t have a country. I’ll advocate for sensible, humane border policies that respect our values and our safety.


I promise to Reinstate Rights: From restoring voting rights to championing medical freedom, I’ll put your rights first. Because when we’re actually free to live our lives, our community thrives.


And I promise to Rip Apart the Deep State: Transparency, accountability, efficiency — that’s my promise. I’ll cut red tape and bring power back to the people.


But this vision isn't mine alone – it's ours. It’s time to bridge the divides, to unite under a banner of shared goals and common dreams. This campaign is about lifting every voice, embracing every idea, and working together for the greater good.


Together, let’s embark on a journey. A journey that transcends political lines, that is rooted in our shared hopes and dreams. This campaign is about more than just winning an election or beating an opponent; it’s about igniting a movement. A movement that speaks to the heart of every citizen, regardless of political affiliation or prior commitments.


So, I ask you to join me. Whether you're red, blue, or any color in the political spectrum – let’s embark on this journey together. Let's unite for the greater good of District 2, for a future that shines bright with promise and possibility. Together, we will not just dream of a better tomorrow; we will build it.


Thank you for standing with me today. Let’s march forward, united in purpose, unstoppable in our resolve, not as scattered voices, but as a united chorus, echoing our commitment to a brighter, bolder, and better District 2. My name is Andrew Scott Smith, I’m running for U.S. House of Representative for District 2 here in Mississippi and I’d appreciate your vote in the primaries on March 12th and again on the general in November. Thank you, God bless you, and God bless District 2."
