The Sun Herald covered U.S. Senate challenger Chris McDaniel’s March 18th Town Hall in Ocean Springs.
While political advertisements have taken direct aim at his statement that he may not have voted for a Hurricane Katrina relief bill, McDaniel stated that he supports disaster relief but would insist upon safeguards against waste, fraud, and abuse.
Repeatedly asserting the need to return to a constitutionally sized government, McDaniel named the Education, Commerce, and Transportation Departments and the IRS among those government organizations that need to be eliminated. He indicated that the few essential services provided by those organizations could be handled within other “constitutional” departments or by local governments.
McDaniel supports the repeal of Obamacare, perks for lawmakers, and tax reform. But he emphasized that his platform is bigger than just the Tea Party while emphasizing the need to return to constitutional government.
