McDaniel: Conservatives ‘enraged,’ will be engaged

“Those three weeks up to the runoff, they saw the despicable and improper things,” McDaniel said. “They are going to take that anger and try to turn it into something in 2015. Who knows where those energies will flow. I just know a lot of people are going to engage the system, and I think that’s a good thing for the system.”

McDaniel touched on numerous topics in the phone interview as he traveled to meet with his attorneys about a legal challenge to his runoff loss, which McDaniel said he will likely file Wednesday.

McDaniel says his legal team has told him he has a “rock-solid” case to overturn the primary, and he’s been letting that team do its work.
