Sen. Thad CochranThad CochranGOP senators voice misgivings about short-term spending bill Trump's wrong to pick Bannon or Sessions for anything Bottom Line MORE’s (R-Miss.) primary challenger, Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel, goes negative in his new ad, hammering Cochran for supporting “wasteful” spending.
The ad paints McDaniel as the “conservative Republican” in the race, who fought wasteful spending as state senator and “put prayer back in schools” and will fight ObamaCare if elected.
It's McDaniel’s second ad in the race, and it’s coming just three weeks out from the primary. His first ad was a positive biographical spot that also referenced his opposition to ObamaCare and support for prayer in schools.
Cochran is considered the incumbent most vulnerable to a primary challenge this cycle, and conservative groups have rallied behind McDaniel in his opposition to the senator, but Cochran has managed to hold a solid lead in most polling of the race.
