Tea Partiers don’t like being called racists but they do love voting for the GOP. A revelation by Erik Erikson at RedState.com that it was Senate Republicans who attacked Mississippi candidate Chris McDaniel by deeming him to be a racist last month could change all that. Will there be a split on the Right with the Tea Party running off to where nobody calls them names? Or will it all be swept under the rug of the big tent in the spirit of Obama hating for a bigger cause? Stay tuned!
I can confirm that the attack ads in Mississippi run by All Citizens for Mississippi were funded by Senate Republicans, including Senators Mitch McConnell, John Cornyn, Rob Portman, Bob Corker and Roy Blunt. The advertisements attacked Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel and painted conservative Republicans and tea party activists as racists. According to documents filed with the Federal Elections Commission, All Citizens for Mississippi received funding from a Haley Barbour backed group called “Mississippi Conservatives”.
