Conservative Lighting Rod’s Campaign Struggles

State Sen. Chris McDaniel’s fundraising numbers in the Mississippi Senate race are a far cry from those generated by his exciting upset bid in the 2014 Republican primary against former Sen. Thad Cochran.

Although McDaniel fell just short of defeating Cochran in the primary that year, his campaign generated significantly more money than his 2018 bid is, showing that interest from conservative groups just isn’t there this time around.

From the Clarion Ledger:

“What a difference four years makes for the McDaniel campaign. In the 2014 GOP primary with Cochran, McDaniel raised $3.24 million in traditional campaign contributions and attracted another $5.7 million from outside groups either supporting ($3.56 million) or opposing ($2.17 million) his campaign for a total spend of some $8.94 million.”
