DML TV brings you the following must-see video.
Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel is running for Senate in the state’s special election, and he says his home state won’t be sending a Democrat to Washington. Sen. McDaniel also discusses not being endorsed by Trump and appealing to the state’s minority voters.
Asked how he would convince black voters that he’s “not a danger to them,” he replied: “I am going to going to ask them, after 100 years, after 100 years of relying on big government to save you, where are you today? After 100 years of begging for federal government scraps, where are you today?”

I condemn and reject in the strongest possible terms Chris McDaniel’s characterization of African-Americans as beggars. This does not reflect the beliefs of the Mississippi Republican Party or the average Mississippian. https://t.co/z7zmgEJEHz
