Breitbart News and Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund will be live-streaming breaking news, live updates, analysis, and information from the campaign headquarters at the victory party for state Sen. Chris McDaniel on Tuesday evening, starting at 7 p.m. CST/8 p.m. EST.
Breitbart News investigative journalist Matthew Boyle and Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund communications director Kevin Broughton will co-host the telecast, which will feature in-depth commentary, up-to-the-minute news, and interviews with many of the key players at the McDaniel victory party as the returns come in after the polls close at 7 p.m. CST.
Interviews with include Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund chair Jenny Beth Martin, various state senators supporting McDaniel, national grassroots leaders, and in-state activists present at the event.
Boyle has been reporting on the ground in Mississippi for months and first called it the “ground zero” race for the fight between the Tea Party grassroots and GOP establishment a few months ago. Broughton’s group, Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, has run advertisements in favor of McDaniel and brought grassroots activists to the state to knock on doors and help with a get-out-the-vote operation for McDaniel. The group has also, through its attorney Cleta Mitchell, fought against various alleged legal and other issues with incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) and his allies.
A few weeks ago, McDaniel bested Cochran in the popular vote. But since neither candidate won 50 percent of the vote, McDaniel and Cochran headed to a runoff on Tuesday.
The livestream is brought to you by Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund.
