McDaniel, Cochran rally in Biloxi, Gulfport before Tuesday’s vote

Former “Love Connection” host Chuck Woolery, who was on the Tea Party Express bus in Biloxi, said he just wants what’s best for the entire country.

“I believe we need to get rid of some of these older guys who have been in Congress for years and years and years making a living off the taxpayer dollars and being professional politicians,” he said. “We need some people to come in and not think about themselves but start thinking about the states and the country.”

Woolery said even though he isn’t from Mississippi, a senator from Mississippi’s votes affect him in Texas because he pays federal taxes.

Neither candidate broke any new ground two days from the Tuesday election.

McDaniel said he would fight to repeal Obamacare, wouldn’t cut education funding and wouldn’t balance the budget on the backs of the military. But he would back term limits and an end to the income tax.

“It’s time for a balanced budget amendment,” he said. “It’s time to scrap the existing tax code and come back with something fair and flat.”

Cochran just remained congenial, asking for voters’ support and thanking them for their support in the past.
