JACKSON – Chris McDaniel, the man who could replace political icon Thad Cochran in the United States Senate, has been at times an outspoken member of the Mississippi Senate where he currently serves.

McDaniel, R-Ellisville, is chair of the Senate’s Conservative Coalition, which consists of 10 of the chamber’s 32 Republicans. It is generally viewed as a group that has not been part of the inner circle of Senate leadership and at times has been at odds with Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves, the chamber’s presiding officer.

When the group formed earlier this summer, McDaniel said its intention was to promote conservative principles, but “we are not disgruntled. We are not unhappy. We are not rogue. We are not covert. We are not subversive.”

  1. And so the demonetization of McDaniel begins.

    Thad Cochran is an icon of appropriation. He is a pork barrel spender, and ultimately a backbencher in the big fights. Mississippi needs a fighter. The fact that McDaniel has failed to tow the ‘party line’ should be an asset in a country where people are becoming more dissatisfied with both parties.
