McDaniel Speech: We'll see you soon

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) -

Chris McDaniel addressed supporters at his campaign party Tuesday night, but according to his camp, it was not a concession speech.

A campaign staffer told WDAM reporters to "stay tuned," leading the public to believe there may be a challenge.

McDaniel said in his speech that "the conservative movement took a backseat to liberal democrats of Mississippi," and claimed this was the reason why he, and Mississippians "will never stop fighting."

McDaniel also addressed the national debt, saying "there was nothing dangerous or extreme about wanting to balance our budget."

McDaniel held his campaign party at the Lake Terrace Convention Center in Hattiesburg. McDaniel led the June 3 primary, but Cochran won the runoff with 51 percent of the vote.
