Mcdaniel Officially Withdraws from One Senate Race and Enters Another

JACKSON, MS (Ben Caxton) — State senator Chris McDaniel has officially withdrawn his challenge to replace Senator Roger Wicker in Washington and instead will run in November to fill the final two years of Senator Thad Cochran’s term. McDaniel lost to Cochran in a bitter primary battle four years ago; Governor Phil Bryant has appointed Mississippi Agriculture Commissioner Cindy Hyde-Smith to fill Cochran’s seat until the special election. In a related story, McDaniel is filing an Internal Revenue Service complaint against a group that complained to the Federal Election Commission about him. McDaniel believes Campaign Legal Center is violating its IRS status as a nonprofit group by engaging in political activity.
