Establishment politicians Mississippi, especially those with 2019 aspirations, take heed: Stay out of the McDaniel vs. Wicker US Senate Republican primary!
Governor Phil Bryant, though likely to retire from politics after his second term expires in January 2020, got a hard lesson in political reality tonight after he endorsed Roger Wicker. His Facebook post announcing the endorsement was lit up with angry conservative voters, many who like the Governor. But as popular as Bryant may be with the Republican base, any good will he had quickly turned to disappointment and anger at his announcement.
Hundreds of comments were running 10-to-1 or better in McDaniel’s favor!
So the lesson should be obvious: Stay out of the race or pay a harsh political price. Hatred of the Establishment is running strong in Mississippi.
Here is a sampling of the comments:
The Establishment is on the ropes! Remember Mississippi!!
