RINO Republican In Name Only is a term used to describe people who are not truly Republican, they just run as a Republican on the ballot to get elected. Is Chris McDaniel a RINO?
He claims he is a lifelong Republican, but
He voted in the Democratic Primary
Records show conservative Republican U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel voted as a Democrat in the 2003 state primary. Associated Press 11/13/2013
Chris McDaniel denied it. But, McDaniels campaign spokesman Keith Plunkett said it is possible McDaniel voted in the 2003 Democratic primary.
Mississippis Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann confirms it: I looked at [the records], and they show he voted Democrat when Haley Barbour, Amy Tuck, Tate Reeves and Stacey Pickering were running in the Republican Primary. They also show he didnt vote in the presidential election in 2004 when Bush was running and didnt vote in the Republican Primary in 2008.
So, Chris McDaniel says he is a lifelong Republican. But he voted in the Democratic Primary; didnt vote in an important Republican Primary, and when liberal Democrat Senator John Kerry was running against President George W. Bush he didnt vote at all.
Chris McDaniel, he says one thing, his record says something else.
Which Party Is It?
When Chris McDaniel first ran for his office in 2007, Ryan Walters, one of his top advisers on his campaign committee was just four years prior the Vice Chairman of the Mississippi Reform Party and served on the Reform Party National Committee.
In 2012, Chris McDaniel was a featured speaker at the Mississippi Constitution Partys State Convention.
And in April, when faced with criticisms of the Libertarian Party, he tried to make amends with that organization, he said, I defended the Libertarian party on many occasions, despite objections from some on the political right.
So which is it, Chris? Reform Party or Constitution Party or Republican Party or Libertarian Party or Democratic Party?
Perhaps well never know, because as McDaniel said to the Libertarians, the longer I serve in government, the more my positions evolve.
The Carthaginian November 21, 2013 Editorial: McDaniel cant cry Liar
A few years back a new newspaper editor moved into a South Delta town and began pumping life into the local weekly with lively news that evoked some consternation.
It led to some serious name calling against the scribe, culminating, the story goes, with a elderly farmer walking through the door of the newspaper and inquiring, Are you the fellow everyones calling a ***-**-*-*****?
Well, the old farmer rejoined, aint nobody calling you a liar.
Chris McDaniel, Tea Party hopeful for the U.S. Senate seat now held by Sen. Thad Cochran, has taken issue with reports he has, in times past, voted a Democratic Party ticket or skipped major Republican Party votes.
After initial confusion in his reply, it came out that state maintained computer records did show McDaniel had voted in a Democratic Party primary and skipped a GOP primary.
That apparently being a grave insult to his conservative credentials, McDaniel or his mouthpieces countered that he had to vote Democratic to vote in local elections, that perhaps someone had struck a wrong key and his vote was improperly recorded, that Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann, a rumored GOP aspirant to the Senate seat, was playing politics at state expense.
The key now is, he aint calling nobody a liar.
Maybe his friend was running as a Democrat. Maybe he hated Haley Barbour as a candidate.
From some of your past postings on the issue I didn’t figure it would take long for you to expose yourself.
How many 10s of thousands of crossover votes did he orchestrate?
Seems to me like that it is perfectly convenient that the media and/or GOP establishment can check any records whatsoever, all the way back 11 years or more ago, yet they (GOPe, MS government, et al) are doing everything possible under the sun to keep Conservatives from examining voter roles from less than one month ago. That’s what it seems like to me.
Many conservatives will be voting rat in November in Mississippi.
If this is chicancery, then Chris has surely taken his punishment on June 24. I cannot imagine though why he would be enticed in 2003 to go into a Democrat primary.
Hi. Karl. How it Mitt?
How ridiculous!.....They’re desperate to find something on McDaniels......anything......and isn’t it amazing his voting record exists.....but we still can’t find Obama’s birth certificate or Lois Lerner’s emails.......
I hate to admit it but I voted Democrat ONCE in my life,and I’m a life long Republican too......(& I will forever regret that vote.....just young & uninformed)
“Seems Chris is guilty of the same behavior he’s now crying foul over. “
Uh, the “foul” is voting in a primary for one party and then voting in the run-off of another. Which is ILLEGAL.
If he’s being misleading it should soon come out and he’d be the old RAUNCH hand.
ORH really hasn’t done much to hide what he is about here.
I thought what he was crying foul over was people voting Democrat in the original primary and then Republican in the runoff—which apparently is illegal.
They come oozing in for every election cycle.
Source: Super PAC Is Formed in Mississippi to Protect 6-Term Senator in G.O.P. PrimaryCare to tell us why you're pulling from a Pro-Thad website?
WASHINGTON A group of Mississippi Republicans, moving to counter spending from out-of-state conservative groups, have created a super PAC to help Senator Thad Cochran fend off a primary challenge and will begin airing a television ad on Friday.
The super PAC, named Mississippi Conservatives to emphasize its homegrown roots, has bought three weeks of airtime on stations across the state for a commercial attacking State Senator Chris McDaniel, who is running against Mr. Cochran.
This hit piece from Haley’s PAC was from November 2013. It clearly had no impact - since McDaniel won more repubs in both head to heads.
So Barbour et al went the race baiting route, calling the Tea Party racist and claiming McDaniel was associated with the KKK, while also running Cochran as a liberal Dem (more food stamps, more welfare, more free stuff).
Any conservative, after being called a racist, who votes for Cochran is a fool.
Anything more than WHAT elections he voted in and under what party for primaries, would be totally up to him to disclose.
Certainly it seems that GOP affairs have dived into treachery.
The only reason to walk into the voting booth with a nose clothespin would be because the Democrats are even MORE treacherous. And certainly it would be with no illusions about trusting in a mortal candidate. It would be about trying to keep a closing door open as long as possible.
