"FreedomWorks is proud to endorse Chris McDaniel for U.S. Senate," FreedomWorks Vice President of Public Policy Dean Clancy said in a statement. "He is the clear choice for fiscal conservatives and lovers of liberty across the state of Mississippi."

The FreedomWorks endorsement comes after McDaniel made headlines for attending a neo-Confederate conference in Laurel, Mississippi in August. News that McDaniel attended the conference broke after he was endorsed by other influential conservative groups including the Senate Conservatives Fund, the Club for Growth and The Madison Project.
