Is the national perspective of McDaniel changing?

McDaniel is depending on the deep pockets of national groups and big-money donors from across the country to help offset Cochran’s advantage in fundraising. For that, he needs good national press. Good free media — even when it’s critical — is invaluable so long as they are talking about how credible of a candidate and potent of a threat he is.

However, when he starts being described as “a controversial former radio host,” that doesn’t help the fundraising too much.
