Chris McDaniel on Foreign Policy

 

 


Divest state contracts from any investments in Iran

Excerpts from legislation: HB 1127, the Iran Divestment Act: To Prohibit Contracting with Companies with Investments in Iran: The Mississippi Legislature finds:
  • The illicit nuclear activities of the Government of Iran, and its support of international terrorism, represent a serious threat to the security of the US, Israel and other allies.
  • The UN Security Council has adopted a range of sanctions designed to encourage Iran to cease those activities.
  • President Obama signed HR 2194, the "Comprehensive Iran Sanctions, Accountability, and Divestment Act," which authorizes states to prevent investment in Iran.
  • The concerns of the State of Mississippi regarding Iran are strictly the result of the actions of the Government of Iran and should not be construed as enmity towards the Iranian peopleLegislative outcome: Sen. McDaniel voted YEA; HB 1127 passed Senate 35-11-6, March 4; passed House 112-7, Feb. 4; signed by Gov. Bryant, April 23

    Opposed Sec. Def. Hagel as "too soft on Iran"

    The challenger pointed to votes on which he differs with Cochran: the senator's vote for the START arms control treaty, his support of tax dollars for United Nations peace-keeping forces, his opposition to building a fence along the Southern U.S. border, and his vote to confirm Chuck Hagel as secretary of defense, who McDaniel said is "too soft on Iran."

    At first glance, an outside observer might conclude that some of these issues won't resonate with the average Republican voter. McDaniel sharply disagrees, pointing out "as Mississippi becomes a more Republican state, there is a watershed split between moderates and constitutional conservatives. This is what this race is about and the times are changing."
