JACKSON, Miss. -- Mississippi Tea Party senate candidate Chris McDaniel has a new ally in his primary campaign against incumbent Thad Cochran: game show host Chuck Woolery.
California-based conservative advocacy group the Tea Party Express announced Tuesday that it will be touring Mississippi with the former Dating Game host urging voters to support McDaniel in the state's upcoming runoff election.
"There is a strong sentiment of frustration with career politicians that continue to put the old politics of 'kicking the can down the road' in front of solutions," said Tea Party Express executive director Taylor Budowich according to The Washington Times.
"They are ready for a new generation of conservative leaders, and we will be doing our part rallying these voters this coming weekend."
In addition to hosting The Dating Game, Woolery served as longtime host of Love Connection, and was the original host of Wheel of Fortune before passing the mic to fellow conservative Pat Sajak.
Woolery, 73, caused controversy in 2012 when he said that African-Americans and the LGBT community "don't need civil rights" after meeting with congresswoman and Tea Party darling Michele Bachmann. Woolery now occupies his golden years by tweeting his views against mainstream conservatives and the Democratic Party.
Think the establishment Republican party bosses have any love for Ted Cruz? They don't. They will fight him tooth and nail. Good on him.-- Chuck Woolery (@chuckwoolery) June 16, 2014
Words matter. Progressive is just a cover word for socialist Marxist. Believe it. If not, look it up.-- Chuck Woolery (@chuckwoolery) June 15, 2014
"The Russians are coming.The Russians are coming." No ladies and gentlemen. The Marxist are here. Running our Government. WAKE UP.-- Chuck Woolery (@chuckwoolery) June 14, 2014
Hope he continues to shoot off his MOUTH. We need it.
Woolery is A-List!
I think you could more aptly describe the behavior creating the anger as "sucking collectivist schlong", and the desired behavior as "razing their homes, salting their ground, and driving their women and children before you".
Isn’t Wollery, 73, a little too old for this campaign?
Compared to Cochran, the 73-year-old Wollery is a spring chicken.
In 1994 Dr. Greg Ganske challenged veteran Democratic Congressman Neal Smith in Iowa. Ganske campaigned in a cream 1958 DeSoto (Smith having won his first congressional race in that year), playing songs from that era. That’d work against Thad.
Good for Chuck Woolery!!
Oldie, but goodie ;-)
Cochran is buying votes in MS with the money McConnell raised.
It all boils down to incumbency, something historically dear and precious to nearly every Mississippian.
‘when he said that African-Americans and the LGBT community “don’t need civil rights”’
Why do they need more rights than everyone else?
Hey! If Woolery can successfully sell fishing lures and arthritis cream, why not McDaniel?
Love it. And you always know he’ll be back in 2 minutes and 2.
Woolery’s famous line from his earlier game show days...
“So how did the date turn out, any romance?”
He is a GREAT asset to the TEA Party and we’re lucky to have him.
Way to go Chuck, keep up the good work!
I’m not nockin Woolrey, just having a little fun, he’s a great guy who’s had tragedy in his life, believe it or not I respect him.
He may be older, but he’s still good looking. He’s very witty, too.
I think it boils down to whether Cochran is successful in buying the dem vote.
As of now, incumbency is losing.
