ICYMI: NEW POLL SHOWS MCDANIEL WELL POSITIONED IN MISSISSIPPI
November 19, 2013
A new PPP poll shows state Senator Chris McDaniel is well positioned to win the 2014 U.S. Senate race in Mississippi. Politico reports:
In a two-way race against Chris McDaniel, Cochran would have just a 6-point lead, 44 percent to 38 percent. When asked if they want to vote for Cochran or “someone more conservative,” 55 percent of GOP primary voters chose the generic more conservative option. If Cochran retires, McDaniel would lead primary voters’ list of ideal candidates to replace him: he takes 25 percent, compared with 23 percent for Delbert Hosemann, 15 percent for Gregg Harper, 13 percent for Steve Palazzo, 8 percent for Alan Nunnelee, 5 percent for Stacey Pickering and 3 percent for Tate Reeves.

M.A.D.D. NAMES CHRIS MCDANIEL ‘LEGISLATOR OF THE YEAR’ FOR WORK PROTECTING CHILDREN
November 19, 2013
(Laurel, MS)--Mississippi Senator and Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Chris McDaniel today was named 'Legislator of the Year' by Mothers Against Drunk Driving (M.A.D.D.) for his work to protect children from drunk driving. McDaniel authored SB 2590 in the Mississippi Senate to create additional penalties for DUI offenders driving drunk with child passengers. Mississippi was the 42nd state to enact a child endangerment law.
“I am honored to be named as MADD’s Legislator of the Year,” said Senator McDaniel. “One of the functions that government must do and do well is public safety, especially the safety of our children. This common sense legislation will go farther to protect our greatest asset. State law must provide prosecutors with the tools needed to deal strongly with anyone who would put these young lives in jeopardy by driving drunk.”
MADD National President Jan Withers thanked McDaniel for giving prosecutors the tools necessary to hold drunk drivers accountable for the safety of child passengers.
“MADD believes every child deserves a non drinking designated sober driver,” said Withers. “Driving drunk with a child passenger in a vehicle is a form of child abuse. The new Mississippi law helps make the punishment fit the crime.”
McDaniel has authored two additional child safety laws in the state Senate, Nathan’s Law and Karen’s Law. McDaniel was previously named 2012 'Legislator of the Year' by the Mississippi Law Enforcement Officers Association and the 2013 'Legislator of the Year' by the Mississippi Highway Patrol.
CHRIS MCDANIEL RELEASES STATEMENT ON OBAMACARE DELAY
November 14, 2013
(Laurel, MS)- Republican candidate for U.S. Senate Chris McDaniel released the following statement today regarding the proposal by President Barack Obama to delay a key component of Obamacare.
“I have said for two years now that Obamacare is fundamentally and structurally flawed. There is no way to fix it. President Obama defended Obamacare to the American people by saying ‘if you like your plan you can keep it.’ That was not true, and he knew it at the time. He said that insurance premiums would go down. Instead, they went up. He said the Obamacare website was tested and secure. That also was not true, and over a month after the launch only 27,000 people across the country have been able to sign up. There is but one fix to Obamacare, repeal it now.
"As a private citizen I led the legal challenge against Obamacare in Mississippi, and if elected to the U.S. Senate, I pledge to Mississippi taxpayers that I will not let up until Obamacare is repealed, and our rights and freedoms are restored."
