The Wicker for Senate campaign issued the following statements today after Chris McDaniel’s campaign announcement.

From Senator Roger Wicker:

“Gayle and I are looking forward to this campaign and sharing my record of successfully fighting to reduce job-killing regulations, confirm conservative judges, enact historic tax cuts, rebuild our military, and honor our veterans. We will work hard to once again earn the votes and support of all Mississippians.”

From campaign manager Justin Brasell:

While Roger Wicker was speaking on Donald Trump’s behalf at the Republican National Convention and traveling the country to help elect President Trump and Republican U.S. Senators, Chris McDaniel was missing.  After attacking and insulting Donald Trump and his supporters in the primary, Senator McDaniel did nothing to help elect our President.

Mississippi Republicans now have yet another opportunity to defeat Chris McDaniel – a man who who has spent a decade barely showing up for work, accomplishing nothing for our conservative cause, and embarrassing all of us with his unethical, unlawful campaign tactics.
