On his Facebook Live event this evening, State Senator Chris McDaniel announced that he would be holding a rally on the campus of Jones County Junior College in Ellisville on Wednesday.
“I think most conservatives in this country feel that our party, the Republican Party, has lost its foundation,” he said. “I think that we feel that it’s no longer rooted in something steady and sure.”
During his 15-minute discussion, McDaniel teased his intentions. “I’m going to be holding an event, and I think you can probably read between the lines as to why I’ll be holding an event.”
“We’re looking for a fight, and I can’t wait for you to be on my team again,” he said.
He also asked his supporters to “Keep my family and I in your prayers. Because goodness knows, you know how these things go.”
In recent weeks, McDaniel has stated that he was considering three possibilities: Lt. Governor, a challenge to Senator Roger Wicker, or to run again for Thad Cochran’s Senate seat.
The announcement event will be held at JCJC in the auditorium of the Home and Health Services Building (near the baseball field) at noon on Wednesday, February 28 and all McDaniel supporters are invited to attend.
