On September 8, Mississippi Conservative Daily posted a story about a mailer sent out by the campaign arm of Hayes Dent Public Strategies, the Republic Group LLC. The mailer was intended to pick up business from prospective establishment candidates and boasted of the firm’s understanding and ability to “traverse the new lay of the land,” an obvious reference to race-baiting tactics employed by the Cochran camp against Senator Chris McDaniel. Today, the head man himself, Hayes Dent, showed his true establishment colors by lashing out at MCD on Twitter for the piece.
Like a typical liberal Democrat, Dent hurled names and insults:
Dent claims no “Cochran people” did any “race baiting” and he only turned out Republicans in the Delta. But define “Cochran people.” Who are you trying to fool, Hayes? I would think Haley Barbour is certainly among the “Cochran people,” and we know he is tied directly to the racist robo calls!
Dent claims to want to grow the party, not purge it, as we mentioned in our piece yesterday, but with insults like that, how can we believe him? Especially when he tells us here at MCD that we are not wanted in the party.
One of our supporters, Pastor Jason, got into the conversation with Dent and sought to mend fences. The tweet includes Dent’s comment that the pastor should stay out of politics:
But Dent responded that it is conservatives who have to do the mending:
So there you have it folks! Conservatives, pastors, men of God, and men of principle, the word is out: stay out of politics and especially the Republican Party in Mississippi! The establishment does NOT want you!
