Mississippi Conservatives: Vote Chris McDaniel TODAY
conservativehq.com ^ | 6/3/14 | George Rasley

Posted on 06/03/2014 10:08:30 AM PDT by cotton1706

When challenged by a limited government constitutional conservative one of the favorite tactics of the Republican establishment is to obscure the real issues in the campaign with a lot of name calling and personal attacks.

The increasingly desperate attacks on Tea Party challenger state Senator Chris McDaniel by Mississippi’s establishment Republican incumbent Senator Thad Cochran, and the Haley Barbour political machine propping him up, will be seen as classics of this practice when the polls close tonight and the campaign is over.

And that’s why we want to refocus our friends in Mississippi on the basics in this campaign and why we endorsed Chris McDaniel early in this important primary.

As CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie noted in his new book TAKEOVER, Mississippi establishment Republican Senator Thad Cochran, is universally acknowledged to be one of the least distinguished members of the Senate. He has spent a thirty-six year career grasping for pork-barrel projects and feeding at the taxpayer-funded trough instead of fighting for conservative principles. In 2010 Citizens Against Government Waste named Cochran the leading pork-seeker in the Senate because he had his name on 240 earmarked projects worth $490.2 million of your hard-earned dollars.

Senator Cochran has been in the Senate since 1978, but his comment “The Tea Party, you know, is something I don't really know a lot about,” makes us wonder if he was stuck in a time warp in the U.S. Capitol for the past five years.

Did he miss Senator Rand Paul’s filibuster against Attorney General Eric Holder’s claim that the Obama administration could use drones to kill Americans on American soil?

Where was Senator Cochran during the whole Cut, Cap and Balance debate in 2011, where Tea Party-backed Members of Congress fought to impose some sort of fiscal discipline on the federal government’s out-of-control spending?

Actually there are eight primaries today. It should be an interesting
evening as the results begin to come in.

I got robo calls from Wicker, Lott, Barbour, and Cochran but no live calls from Cochran supporters. I got one live call for McDaniel and four robo calls. I guess its pretty obvious McDaniel has upset the status quo.

I was ok with the politics until Barbour et al started using disparaging words about Palin and others showing he is other than back to roots conservative. I'm hoping Barbour et al burn in hell with the rest of the traitors selling us out.

Lott doesn’t want the Senate to have to go through co-opting another senator. It’s much easier (and makes more sense in his mind) to re-elect a senator who is already co-opted!

Yea, we never knew MS had so many traitors until this campaign. But the people there can’t recognize treason when it happens.

Even if Cochran is uninformed, so are his constituents who may blindly follow him into the ditch.
