Tweets from the account regularly have to do with secession and black oppression of whites.

The @senatormcdaniel twitter account is not verified but a number of tweets are in the first person. One, for instance, includes McDaniel and supporters in December.

Reached for comment, McDaniel's spokesmen did not respond to multiple questions about the tweets.

In 2013 McDaniel attended at least one Neo-Confederate event in Mississippi. Earlier in the year Mother Jones reported that McDaniel also blamed hip-hop for gun violence.
