The endorsement is the latest one by the influential Senate Conservatives Fund. The group has recently endorsed Matt Bevin who is challenging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) in the Republican primary and state Sen. Chris McDaniel (R-MS) in the primary for Sen. Thad Cochran's (R-MS) Senate seat.

Maness's campaign has reportedly only raised $100,000 this year.
