New Ad: “Who is Chris McDaniel?”

Tomorrow, Mississippi Conservatives will launch a statewide television campaign spotlighting the record of Chris McDaniel and showing inconsistencies between his campaign rhetoric and his factual record.

“Voters in Mississippi are going to wonder if they can trust a candidate who says one thing, but does another thing,” said Brian Perry, director of Mississippi Conservatives.  Perry continued, “He says he supports tort reform, but he sought to have it ruled unconstitutional.  He says he opposes debt, but he has voted for more than $1.2 billion in new debt for Mississippi.  Now he says he opposes Common Core, but the past two years he has voted to fund it.  His campaign rhetoric does not match his factual record.  Voters will have to judge whether his ‘do as I say, not as I do’ history is typical politician hypocrisy and trial lawyer double-speak.”

Mississippi Conservatives was established as an independent expenditure only committee in January 2014 to support the re-election of U.S. Senator Thad Cochran. It operates independently from and without coordination with Cochran’s campaign and is a Mississippi based organization.

FACT CHECK

FACT: TORT REFORM — Chris McDaniel sought to have a portion of Mississippi’s comprehensive tort reform ruled unconstitutional – specifically the $1 million cap on noneconomic damages.  On September 13, 2012, Chris McDaniel represented a client in a motion in Tanner v. Eagle Oil and Gas to hold the caps on non-economic damages unconstitutional.  McDaniel and his firm represented the plaintiffs on this case in Jasper County (docket #111-0013) with a final judgment of $36 million ($26 million of it in noneconomic damages).  In response, the judge ruled the damage cap was unconstitutional.  Before appeal, the case was settled out of court.

FACT: DEBT — Chris McDaniel voted for $1.2 billion in new debt for Mississippi.
