Republican state Sen. Chris McDaniel said Monday he’s “at peace” and will make an announcement “in a matter of weeks” about his political future….
…”I’ve come to peace with one of those seats,” said McDaniel, R-Ellisville. “Internally, I’m at peace. I will make an announcement one way or the other in a matter of weeks.”
…McDaniel does not appear to have created a federal campaign committee or raised money yet for a federal race, although Bannon has reportedly been talking with campaign financiers on his behalf. One wealthy anti-establishment GOP financier, the Robert Mercer family, recently donated $50,000 to a new “Remember Mississippi” super PAC set up by Susan Perkins, an assistant at McDaniel’s law firm in Laurel.
