Republican Chris McDaniel of Mississippi is attempting to take another bite out the apple, so to speak. This
time he is trying to unseat the incumbent U.S. Senator and establishment hack, Roger Wicker. The date of the Republican primary is June 5.
However, this election should be unnecessary and should never be taking place. If all were right in the world, Chris McDaniel would already be one of Mississippi’s two senators. I’ll get to that in a bit.
That being said – what is the first thing we should do regarding this election? That’s right – see what kind of senator Wicker has been over the 11 years he’s held the office. For this we check out Wicker’s Liberty Score,which tracks the number and percentage of conservative vs. liberal votes he has cast and derives an overall letter grade from them.
As Wicker is just another of the many Mitch McConnell stooges, you would expect it to be low, and it is. His conservative letter grade is a solid “F,” at 30 percent. However, he is more conservative than his fellow Mississippi senator, Thad Cochran, who also sports an “F” at just 24 percent.
McDaniel has proven himself to be a solid conservative, but the establishment is trying to paint him as the bumbling second coming of Roy Moore in an effort to scare rank-and-file Republicans into supporting Wicker. Just like Democrats who stand for nothing – the Wicker-men can only attack his opponent.
