Stacey Wilkes is running for the MS House seat in district 108 opened by Rep. Formby’s departure.
Sadly, Wilkes’ campaign and her proxies have launched attacks at outsider Tavish Kelly claiming he is not conservative.
Which raises a good question. Is Wilkes herself a conservative? We thought we’d take a look.
Firstly, It is interesting to note that when the question of whether or not she would support Chris McDaniel if he were to challenge Roger Wicker in 2018, Wilkes refuses to answer. Her silence on the matter couldn’t be louder.
As if her silence weren’t loud enough, there is an abundance of evidence Stacy Wilkes is not a conservative. (Hat tip, The Internet)
First, Stacy Wilkes is a paid swamp creature.
As you see here, Wilkes worked for Sen. Thad Cochran in 2014 as Cochran’s FEC expenditure report shows.
Every sentient being in Mississippi knows that Cochran was the race-baiting liberal Democrat dressed as a Republican propped up by Mitch McConnell Weekend At Bernies style in a desperate move to hold onto the appropriator’s seat.
Second, Wilkes exhibits solicitousness matched perhaps only by the likes of Thad’s secretary Kay Weber by posing for photos of Wicker like the one you see here.
(If anyone has a photo of Wilkes posing with Chris McDaniel, please send it our way. We’ll be glad to retract this section)
Third, Stacy Wilkes hired Mitch McConnell’s campaign consultant Justin Brasell, recommended to her, no doubt, by Tate Reeves.
In our world, you are the company you keep. So Wilkes shouldn’t be keeping company with the likes of McConnell or his consultants.
McConnell is bent on destroying conservatives. He’s not a conservative. And neither are his enablers.
INSIDE BASEBALL ALERT: McConnell’s hand Justin Brasell is a major reason formerly conservative state senators might have lost their standing among conservative circles across the state.
It was Brasell, Tate Reeves told incumbent state senators, who would run 2015 campaigns for their challengers if they did not endorse Reeves for Lt. Gov. in his re-elect in 2015. All but three Republican senators endorsed Reeves.
Back to Stacy Wilkes, we here at Mississippi Conservative Daily feel fairly secure in making the claim that Wilkes will not side with the conservative option in any future U.S. Senate race.
Tavish Kelly, on the other hand has proudly announced his support of the Mississippi state flag.
Kelly also supports State Senator Chris McDaniel in a hypothetical matchup against Wicker for the junior U.S. Senator’s seat in D.C.
It’s no surprise Wilkes won’t commit to support the conservative McDaniel against establishment Republican Roger Wicker.
Wilkes worked against McDaniel in the past, and even worked on Cochran’s campaign staff. If Wilkes happens to defeat Kelly, she’ll fit right in with the other alligators in Jackson’s swamp.
