The super PAC connected to the Senate Conservatives Fund released a new ad Thursday praising Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel (R) as a strong conservative.
The ad, named “Rightful Heirs,” features footage of McDaniel at the Jones County courthouse in Ellisville, MS. McDaniel is clipped in the ad saying that “the national debt is the greatest moral crisis of this generation” and a voiceover describes the state senator as “bold” and “conservative.”
Senate Conservatives Action, the super PAC connected to SCF, spent $263,500 on the ad. It will air throughout the state on cable and broadcast television between Nov. 14 and Nov. 27.
McDaniel has recently come under fire for voting as a Democrat in local elections in 2003. After McDaniel originally denied that he had voted in the local Democratic primary, a spokesman later told TPM that McDaniel had, in fact, voted in the Democratic primary for the local elections.
McDaniel also admitted to attending at least one neo-Confederate event.
