Mississippi’s Tea Party members made it clear that they are sticking with Chris McDaniel for the long haul, as they gathered together over the weekend to show their support for McDaniel’s demand for a recount of the primary runoff votes. Nearly 100 supporters got together to on Saturday to show their support of their local Tea Party and contest what they have dubbed a “stolen election.”
According to local news affiliate WLOX, Tea Party leaders continue to ask for donations. In fact, in the past week, “McDaniel asked for donations twice from his supporters. One to fund rewards for any evidence highlighting voter fraud within the runoff and the other is to fund the campaign’s future legal challenge. ”
“I felt kind of ashamed, our party is known for good, moral values and doing things the right way and to see our party fall apart it’s kind of sad,” said Jeremiah Boddy, Tea Party Member, over the weekend when discussing the current state of the Mississippi Tea Party and their rally to support Chris McDaniel’s request for a recount of runoff votes.
