Mississippi Tea Party Calls on Nosef to Resign

The Mississippi Tea Party calls for MS GOP Chairman Joe Nosef to stay out of the Mississippi U.S. Senate Primary or resign.

The call for his resignation comes on the heels of his public comments to NBC News implying Republican U.S. Senate Candidate Chris McDaniel had to clarify claims made about him in Liberal blog Talking Points Memo.

Hard Ball’s Chris Matthews highlighted Nosef’s comments in his show early last week.

The MS Tea Party also calls on Joe Nosef to rescind his comments on the Paul Gallo Show last week in which he insinuated that Republican candidate for U.S. Senate in Mississippi Chris McDaniel might cost the GOP a senate seat in the general election.

It is inappropriate for Nosef to make such claims given his role as Chairman of the MS GOP. Accordingly, Joe Nosef should resign from his position as Chairman of the MS GOP effective immediately.

Mississippi GOP bylaws call for MS GOP leadership to remain neutral during primaries. Nosef’s behavior clearly violates MS GOP bylaws.

With or without Nosef, the MS Tea Party strongly suggests the MS GOP observe and obey its own stated principles and admonitions against involvement in primaries. The Establishment does not own the Republican Party, PERIOD.

The MS Tea Party is committed to Constitutionally limited governance, fiscal responsibility, and free market principles, in addition to the rule of law.
