LAUREL, Miss. Chris McDaniels Republican campaign for the Senate barreled through Mississippi on Sunday on anti-establishment, Tea Party-invigorated energy as the states runoff primary race entered its final hours.
The Tea Party Express, one of the nations largest organizations aligned with the movement, was the host of three bus tour events earlier this weekend, with a fourth planned for later Sunday all intended to raise support for Mr. McDaniel, who will face the incumbent, Senator Thad Cochran, in the runoff election on Tuesday.
Five years have passed since Tea Party groups began protesting big government at summer town-hall meetings across the country, and this runoff has become a test of the movements durability, especially after a Tea Party challenger defeated the House majority leader, Eric Cantor, in a primary this month.

Theyre not going to select our senatorial candidate. We the people will select him. It will not be the political machine and the Republican old guard.
Sneering is best done with facial expressions and vocalizations, but this NY Times writer has managed to do it with the printed word.
“The establishment has fell my friend.”
No doubt a dig by this metrosexual reporter at the expense of these yokels who support a tea party candidate, intentionally mistakening “failed” for “fell”. If only he could have been assigned to cover Moochelle’s “Your’re Too Stupid to Know What to Feed Your Own Kids So the Federalcrats Will Dictate That to You” campaign rather than this hick campaign in Mississippi.
And that should make a victory on Tuesday even more delicious!
Senator Chris McDaniels will be a great senator.
