Blair served as a field rep in DeSoto County for the Cochran campaign.

McDaniel is challenging Cochran in the runoff on Tuesday for United States Senate in Mississippi.

According to Breitbart, which obtained a redacted copy of the police report of the arrest, Blair, who is on the DeSoto County GOP executive committee, was arrested on Sunday and charged with "malicious mischief" for attempting to "disfigure, destroy, injure (or cause to be)" a Chris McDaniel campaign sign.
