Congressman Michael Guest is serving his first term as the U.S. Representative for Mississippi’s Third Congressional District. Congressman Guest is a lifelong conservative Republican who believes in limited government, traditional Mississippi values, free market economic principles of lower taxes and fewer regulations, the right to life of the unborn, a strong national defense with full support of our men and women in the military, and our 2nd Amendment gun rights and all of the other individual liberties guaranteed to us by the Constitution.
As a member of the Committee on Homeland Security, Congressman Guest works to protect our nation from foreign threats. While serving as District Attorney for Madison and Rankin Counties, Congressman Michael Guest earned a record for fighting for Mississippi’s families by prosecuting criminals—and he has taken that same spirit and determination to Washington, D.C., to fight for Mississippi in the United States Congress. Congressman Guest is committed to securing our country’s southwest border to help curb the flow of illegal drugs into our communities, and he will be able to lead on this issue as a member of the Committee on Homeland Security’s Subcommittee on Border Security, Facilitation, and Operations. He is also a member of the Subcommittee on Emergency Preparedness, Response, and Recovery.
Congressman Guest also serves on the House Foreign Affairs Committee and two of its subcommittees: the Subcommittee on Europe, Eurasia, Energy, and the Environment and the Subcommittee on Western Hemisphere, Civilian Security, and Trade. Congressman Guest believes that American greatness is rooted not only in our success at home but also in our strength abroad. As a member of this influential committee, Congressman Guest looks forward to supporting sound international policies that provide strong economic opportunities for Mississippi, help keep our citizens safe, and ensure our national interests remain secure.
Congressman Guest was appointed by House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy to serve on the House Committee on Ethics. Congressman Guest is the only current first-term Member of Congress to be selected to the panel, which is responsible for ensuring the integrity of the institution of the House of Representatives.
