WHAT: Local activists representing FreedomWorks and the Mississippi Tea Party are holding a press conference to urge Governor Phil Bryant to appoint conservative State Senator Chris McDaniel as a successor to Sen. Thad Cochran in the U.S. Senate.
Speakers will include:
- Rev. CL Bryant, senior fellow, FreedomWorks
- Laura Van Overschelde, chairman, Mississippi Tea Party
- Mike Bostic, vice chairman, Tate County Republican Club
- Other conservative leaders from across the state
WHEN: Wednesday March 14, 1 p.m. CT
WHERE: Mississippi State Capitol, second floor rotunda
WHY: Local activists want to show the Governor there is a strong grassroots demand for a true conservative to represent Mississippi in the U.S. Senate. State Senator Chris McDaniel has a proven record of advancing limited-government values and would be a leader in the fight to drain the swamp.
ABOUT FREEDOMWORKS: FreedomWorks aims to educate, build, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty and the rule of law.
