JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - The Jones County Republican Women held its monthly luncheon Wednesday.
State Senator Chris McDaniel was the speaker at the event.
He is the Mississippi campaign chairman for presidential candidate Ted Cruz.
"Senator Cruz is a great guy," McDaniel said. "I'm his campaign chair for MS. Obviously I'm behind him a thousand percent. He is that conservative fighter that we need. He has backbone, he has the intelligence and he has the conviction to do the right thing every time."
McDaniel said he intends to stay on with the Cruz campaign when he goes back to the state capitol.
