MS Tea Party president calling for GOP chairman’s resignation
A flyer for a pro-gun rally in North Mississippi is kicking up dust. Nosef said Chris McDaniel should clarify the claims that he will be in attendance.
One of the vendors on the poster has been billed as “segregationist”. Chris McDaniel is listed as the keynote speaker. His camp has since said he never agreed to attend.
Political analyst and author Andy Taggart thinks Nosef made the right call.
“What more proper role for the state party chairman to fill than to tell a candidate, look this is something that needs to be explained to the voters,” said Taggart.
Still, the Tea Party thinks it’s evidence that Nosef isn’t being neutral.
“We believe that he’s violated the bylaws of the Republican Party in the state of Mississippi by getting the point where he’s asking Chris for information and not asking Cochran to do so,” said Mississippi Tea Party President Laura Van Overschelde.
“Anyone who has paid close attention to our US Senate primary knows that I’ve not only stayed neutral with regard to the candidates but also worked relentlessly against efforts to divide our party,” said Nosef in a statement.
