Thank you for the overwhelming support for our efforts to defeat a 41 year incumbent in Mississippi and send State Senator Chris McDaniel to the United States Senate. Chris McDaniel was the true conservative in the race, and he was a fighter. That’s one thing we really liked about him. And right now he isn’t backing down from the fight. After numerous reports of impropriety in Tuesday’s runoff, he is weighing whether or not he can make a case to challenge the results of the election. We will wait to see what his campaign decides to do and determine if there is any other way that we can lend support.
If there’s one thing we confirmed with this race it is that the establishment will stoop to the lowest of lows to hold onto power. Democrats and Republicans alike who become entranced by the spoils of power in Washington, DC, are the real enemy in this fight and we aren’t going to back down.
Please take a few minutes to watch this video expressing our gratitude for all of the hard work and resources you put into this effort.

TPP Citizens Fund Commends Mississippians
for Hard-Fought Campaign
Hattiesburg, MS. –Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund Chairman Jenny Beth Martin issued the following statement:
“Nobody said taking on the Establishment would be easy. We’re going to keep fighting.
“This is a tough loss. Thad Cochran campaigned as a Democrat and won with Democrat votes. The Establishment will do anything to hold on to power. The Establishment does not want the likes of Mike Lee and Ted Cruz in the Senate to shine light on their antics like their cozy relationships with K Street lobbyists and their backroom deals.
“Chris McDaniel ran a great campaign, championing the values of personal freedom, economic freedom and a debt-free future. We’re proud that Chris stepped into the arena and championed these issues we have been fighting for and they are not going away. America needs more people like Chris McDaniel who are willing to fight for these principles.
“There’s no doubt that the Establishment used every trick in the book, and that among Republican voters in the Republican runoff, Chris McDaniel won. There may well be challenges over the irregularities that occurred Tuesday.
“This experience only brings into focus that our fight is with an elitist, ruling class that will do anything to hold onto power. We’re not backing down from fighting for the conservative principles that allow people to pursue their American Dreams.
“We are truly humbled and gratified about the monumental effort Mississippians made to affect change. The hardworking citizens of Mississippi had the courage to take on one of the largest, dirtiest political machines in the nation. They exposed the depths to which the Republican Establishment will sink. We’re proud of their work and will carry on the fight.”
Again, thank your for all of your support in fighting for personal freedom, economic freedom, and a debt-free future. This fight isn’t over and we aren’t backing down!
