McDaniel: McConnell Sold His Soul For Power, Money

Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel (R) on Tuesday accused Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) of selling his soul.

On the “Sandy Rios in the Morning” radio show, Rios asked McDaniel to respond to the fact that some Kentucky voters say they won’t support McConnell because of his support for Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) in the Senate primary and to the Minority Leader’s push to “crush the Tea Party,” according to a Right Wing Watch recording.

“What we’re seeing are people like McConnell and people like Cochran and others that will sell their very souls for a little extra power or a little extra money,” McDaniel responded, referring to the Mississippi Senate primary race, which McDaniel claims Cochran only won with votes from Democrats and African-Americans.
