JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - State Senator Chris McDaniel of Jones County launched his re-election campaign Thursday night.

He chose President Ronald Reagan's 100th birthday to make it official. Attending Thursday's night event were many of McDaniel's Republican friends. McDaniel is best known for his work on Nathan's law, a bill that would increase penalties for passing a stopped school bus.

He says he recently met with Ed Blackmon, the house committee chairman who has blocked that bill.
