McDaniel issues post-runoff statement

ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

This is a news release from the McDaniel Camp

Laurel, MS - Republican candidate for U.S. Senate issued a statement following a closely contested primary runoff election rife with irregularities.

Invoking Ronald Reagan's message of liberty, freedom, and balance budgets, traditional values, and personal responsibility, McDaniel called for scrutiny of the election's irregularities and for a thorough examination of the core principles of the Republican party.

"The conservative movement is alive in Mississippi," McDaniel said. "The Republicans who voted last night made it clear they're looking for conservative change in Mississippi." 

"But the results also tell another story," McDaniel continued. "They tell the story of some members of our party who are willing to engage in tactics unbecoming of the party of Ronald Reagan. It's no wonder so many conservatives don't feel welcome in the Republican party," McDaniel said.

"If our party and our conservative movement are to co-exist, it is paramount that we ensure the sanctity of the election process is upheld. And we will do that. In the case of yesterday's election, we must be absolutely certain that our Republican primary was won by Republican voters."

"In the coming days, our team will look into the irregularities to determine whether a challenge is warranted," McDaniel continued. "After we've examined the data, we will make a decision about whether and how to proceed," he concluded.
