The Tea Party candidate who is challenging Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) promised to “kill” ObamaCare, if he gets elected in November.
“We are not going to stand with an eye toward trying to place a Band-Aid on ObamaCare,” Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel said at FreePAC Kentucky, a conservative gathering in Louisville on Saturday. “We’re not going to fix it. We’re going to kill it.”
The event featured a number of other Tea Party speakers, including two who are running against fellow Republicans in the November elections. Many in the Tea Party are upset that mainstream Republicans aren’t doing more to fight the Obama administration.
McDaniel hopes to unseat six-term Cochran, who has been in office since 1978. While Kentucky businessman Matt Bevin, who was also speaking at the event, is vying to defeat Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, a five-term senator.
