Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel laid out the national case for grassroots conservatism in a speech that fired up the crowd at the FreedomWorks-sponsored FreePAC Kentucky event on Saturday.
Were fighting, and so it begins again, McDaniel opened his ten-minute speech. One last great stand for liberty. One last great stand for our Constitution. We dare not disappoint. Theres too much at stake. Our countrys too great to lose and I will not tell my children one day about a once-great Republic that we were unable to save. We will not witness the managed decline of this Republic. We will witness its revival. We will witness its resurrection.
McDaniels speech took place before about 2,000 Tea Party activists in Louisville, Kentucky, a couple states over from Mississippi where he is challenging U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) in the June 3 GOP primary. The contest has become a national battleground between the establishment and the conservative grassroots. Two months out, polling data shows them in a dead heat.
Cochran is wrapping up his sixth term in the United States Senate, and has served in Congress for 42 years. He is closely allied with former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, now a lobbyist and outspoken representative of the Republican establishment.
Cochran has already made major unforced errors in the campaign, including twice stating he doesn't really know what Tea Party movementa five year old political grassroots surge that swept Republicans into control of the House in 2010is. And his ordinary pitch to voters that he has brought home the bacon Cochran has more federal buildings in Mississippi named after himself than any current member of Congress is out of style.
McDaniel is a two-term state senator in Mississippi mounting a grassroots-focused challenge to Cochran...

Damn straight. The first battle to be won is against the power structure of our own party, make no mistake.
Hope he wins.
tHAD enough ping
Winning “control” of the Senate isn’t simply getting to 51 Pubbies. If McConnell & Co. stay running the show, we will see nothing done for two years and then the RATS will retake the Senate (because the GOP will have to defend twice as many seats as the RATs, (24 vs.11)), which with Hitlary as president will be the final nails in the country’s coffin. In all of my considerable years, I have never seen such a spineless bunch in the GOPe. The Tea Party needs to start trashing the likely GOPe presidential candidates today. No Jeb, No Fat Boy. The only thing the GOPe hasn’t started yet is a “Draft Arnold” meme.
YES!!! You go boy!
The Tea Party needs to start trashing the likely GOPe presidential candidates today. No Jeb, No Fat Boy.
And no Rand Paul. He’s so in love with Mitch McConnell, he’d prolly make Mitch the next Secretary of State if he got into the Oval Office.
Thank you for the post Jim. Thank you for the ping WKB.
