Chris McDaniel on Principles & Values

 


OpEd: Cochran accused of courting blacks for runoff vote

Chris McDaniel condemned racially charged questions asked by an unidentified participant during a press call with aides to Sen. Thad Cochran. Given a chance to comment on the remarks in a CNN interview on Friday, Cochran's GOP Senate primary challenger in Mississippi condemned them but said his campaign doesn't know anything about the caller. "Certainly, we condemn any racist comments whatsoever, but bear in mind, we have no idea who that person is," McDaniel said. "Neither do you. So, you understand there are people out there we have no control over. We have no idea who that person is."

In a media call on Wednesday with Cochran aides, an anonymous caller repeatedly asked questions about the senator's interaction with African-American voters. "If black people were harvesting cotton, why is it OK to harvest their votes?" the caller asked. Some McDaniel supporters have accused the Cochran campaign of paying African-Americans to vote for the senator in the runoff.

Revive America's Christian foundation

State Sen. Chris McDaniel (R) challenged a church crowd here to fight to revive America's Christian foundation during a Sunday speech at a southern Mississippi Pentecostal church. "Today is the day we begin to fight again," he told about 80 worshipers gathered at the Word Alive Revival Center. "Go back out in your communities and make a difference again. It can't just stop at the church. Take it out to the streets. That's when you begin to reclaim your country again."

The Tea Party-backed candidate made no mention of his own challenge to Sen. Thad Cochran. Instead, McDaniel delivered a political sermon of sorts, drawing from the scripture of the Founding Fathers to make a case for Christians to stand up and fight to reclaim America's culture and reestablish the nation's Christian foundation. He quoted an array of American figures endorsing America's Christian values and encouraging a God-fearing nation, including John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry and others.

Tied to Tea Party and endorsed by conservative groups

A trio of outside groups endorsed a Mississippi Republican state legislator's primary challenge to Sen. Thad Cochran. Club for Growth PAC, the Senate Conservatives Fund and the Madison Project PAC all offered support for State Sen. Chris McDaniel, who has tied himself closely with tea party groups and announced his bid earlier in the day.

The endorsing groups stressed that McDaniel has proven his right-wing bona fides. "Chris McDaniel is not part of the Washington establishment and he has the courage to stand up to the big spenders in both parties," the Senate Conservatives Fund executive director said.

Cochran , mingled with about 70 donors at a reception this week at the National Republican Senatorial Committee headquarters. He suggested this summer that it might take months before he shares his plans. Asked about the attacks, Cochran's spokesman emailed: "Senator Cochran has indicated that he will determine his plans regarding the 2014 election cycle later this year."
