On Friday, McDaniel will be announcing—he told Breitbart News exclusively—a new Political Action Committee (PAC) designed to help conservatives across Mississippi, and the nation, get elected to political office, replacing GOP establishment politicians.
The PAC, titled the United Conservatives Fund will focus on “electing conservatives and holding Republicans accountable while messaging conservatism in a way that secures conservatives get a chance to be elected even over some of those in the establishment,” McDaniel tells Breitbart.
What we’re focused on here is a couple of things: The first is we’re creating an organization that speaks directly to conservatism, not to party. Second, we want an organization that will focus on outreach. We do outreach based on logical and intricate messaging. And lastly, we’ve got to be able to hold our officials accountable because despite the grassroots complaining and despite our wishes, so far the Republican leadership in the establishment has ignored us. This fund will be used to make them listen to us once and for all.
McDaniel is the man for the job.
McDaniel himself may make another run for a higher office soon. He could run for state Attorney General against incumbent Democrat Jim Hood, or he could challenge incumbent Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves—a Republican closely aligned with the Barbours—in 2015. If he doesn’t run for either of those seats, McDaniel has also been talked about as a potential candidate against U.S. Rep. Steven Palazzo—an establishment Republican who’s come under particular fire by voting for Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) for Speaker of the House rather than for a Republican alternative as many of his constituents wanted.
