“The Republican Establishment thinks they have fought back an insurrection from conservatives and now we will meekly fall in line in November and support a RINO who needs Democrats to win? Never,” said Mr. Phillips, who also writes a column in The Washington Times. “If Chris McDaniel loses his challenges to this election, then he needs to be a write-in candidate this fall.”
It’s increasingly clear that Democrat votes, particularly from Mississipi’s African American community helped Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) eek out a win over McDaniel in the GOP primary. Those votes would most likely go to a Democrat in the Fall, meaning McDaniel may have a good chance at winning in a three man race.
As Conservative radio host Mark Levin pointed out on Twitter, the DC GOP establishment may have broken the Republican / Conservative alliance once adn for all given their tactics in propping up Cochran in Mississippi when the Republican base so clearly had rejected him.
DC GOP and its corporatist bosses may have finally angered conservatives beyond repair http://t.co/YvwLUB0A1J
