JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Republican State senator and U.S. Senate hopeful Chris McDaniel was back in Jones County Saturday, campaigning at a local convenience store that's become an important stop for high-profile candidates on the campaign trail. 

McDaniel, a Laurel native, met supporters at Mak's in Eastabuchie. 

He's running for the Senate seat currently held by longtime GOP incumbent Thad Cochran. 

"We've been all over the state the last several days," McDaniel said. "We've hit everyone from Tupelo to the coast and now back here in Jones County and Forrest County. It's great to be home. We're making a real difference out there," he said.

Just a couple of weeks ago, Republican 4th District congressional candidate Gene Taylor campaigned at Mak's. And incumbent GOP Representative Steven Palazzo also campaigned there in 2010.    

McDaniel was also scheduled to make campaign stops in Laurel and Lamar County on Saturday.
