The first rally of the Tea Party Express’s ‘Elect Chris McDaniel Tour’ kicks off today in Laurel, Mississippi at 5:30pm Central. Highlighting the stage will be great speakers like Talk Radio Host Lars Larson, Dallas Tea Party Leader Katrina Pierson, News Ninja & TPNN guest contributor Wayne Dupree, Investigative Reporter Charles Johnson, Tea Party Express’s Donlyn Turnball with music provided by Rivoli Revue.
This is the second time this Primary season that the bus is returning to Mississippi with the sole purpose being to energize the electorate to turn out for Chris McDaniel in his Primary Runoff on Tuesday, June 24. Other notables who have been in the State campaigning for Chris McDaniel include Rick Santorum and Sarah Palin.
At a McDaniel rally yesterday, an obvious Cochran loyalist tried to disrupt the rally by screaming ““How, with no seniority and a promise simply not to get along with anyone, will you accomplish any of the things you want to accomplish?” According to a report from the rally, John Davis, a retired 77-year-old teacher, shouted at the McDaniel.
“What have they accomplished lately by putting us in debt?” McDaniel responded.
“What have they accomplished? They have accomplished airports. They have accomplished roads. They have accomplished schools,” he countered, wagging his finger at McDaniel. To this disruption, McDaniel reportedly responded, “Get your finger out of my face.”
The GOP Establishment was stunned by Thad Cochran’s narrow loss to McDaniel in the June 10th Primary and have held nothing back from their playbook in regards to the Runoff – rumors of recruiting Democrats to cross over, a high dollar DC fundraiser sponsored by Senator Mitch McConnell and even taking pages from President Obama by calling in a celebrity, NFL quarterback legend Brett Favre, for a Hail Mary endorsement.
“The senator’s vote in Mississippi, affects my life in Kentucky and I am tired of senators who do not work for the people of this great country. I am confident that a candidate like Chris McDaniel, who has principles and stands on the Constitution, will be proud to stand strong next to patriots like Senators Ted Cruz and Mike Lee,” remarked Kay Rivoli.
Other cities in the three-day campaign include Tupelo, Pearl and Biloxi Mississippi. A full schedule of the ‘Elect Chris McDaniel’ bus tour can be found on the Tea Party Express website. TPNN.com will be covering the event. Please check our site for often for updates and livestream of the rallies.
TPNN will also be live streaming from McDaniel headquarters Tuesday night, June 24, as the results come in.
