Senator Chris McDaniel Tells WDAM He’s Considering A Run for U.S. Senate

United States Senator Thad Cochran has not confirmed whether he will run for a 7th term in November, 2014; however, State Senator Chris McDaniel of Jones County is considering a Republican primary challenge.

McDaniel told 7 on your Side that Mississippians are angry about what’s going on in Washington.

“We’re keeping our options open,” McDaniel said.

“If the people choose for us to take another direction in my political career, then we’ll do that.”

Even though Cochran has a large backing in the State of Mississippi, McDaniel says he’s up to challenging the senator who’s been in office for nearly 35 years.
