McDaniel tells supporters he’s willing to pay the price

State Sen. Chris McDaniel doesn’t mind being a sacrificial lamb if he challenges the outcome of the Republican U.S. Senate primary runoff — as long as it means a more honest election system for the state of Mississippi.

That’s what he told a room of about 100 supporters Saturday afternoon during a Truth and Justice Tour stop in Pearl.

Unfazed by a 45-minute wait, the crowd’s energy was high as people expressed anger at alleged voting irregularities McDaniel claims cost him the win.
