Senator Chris McDaniel will be joined tonight by Gulf Coast conservatives in D’iberville to complete a week-long tour of the state announcing the launch of a new member-led political action committee. McDaniel started last Friday in Tupelo and made stops in Southaven, Pearl, and Hattiesburg over the past week.
Hundreds across Mississippi have turned out to learn about the United Conservatives Fund’s unique approach to political action. The organization brings together a diverse executive committee representing 5 key groups in the conservative movement.
“We brought together social conservatives, fiscal conservatives, the TEA Party, Libertarians, and the new conservative coalitions,” McDaniel said. “Everyone has a seat at the table. We may have our disagreements on some issues, but we are willing to set them aside for the good of the whole and to focus on the three tenets we will work together to promote.”
Those three tenets, according to McDaniel, are three things all conservatives understand and believe.
“We focus on decentralization of government, true federalism or the proper relationship between the federal and state government, and lastly, a high moral tone that values volunteerism and helping others in the community,” said McDaniel. “These are the ideals any true conservative supports.”
United Conservatives Fund will begin collecting information on candidates running in the upcoming state elections in the next few weeks. Following a vetting process, the executive committee will then make determinations as to which candidates the PAC will support and by what means.
The announcement of the launch of the United Conservatives Fund continues this evening at the D’iberville Town Green and Visitors Center at 10004 Central Ave. at 6:30 PM.
