NESHOBA COUNTY, Miss. (WCBI)- Tea Party members certainly made their presence known at the Neshoba County Fair.
Several Chris McDaniel supporters had tape over their mouths, holding ” Betrayed: Remember Mississippi Signs.”
They also spoke about the primary race they believe was stolen from McDaniel.
“A lot of people are saying you know what, Cochran won. It’s time to just get unified and come together at this point and worry about November. What’s your response to that?” I asked.
“You know, the ball’s in their court. 184,000 voters have been alienated by their own party. We feel betrayed. We feel like battered wives whose husband says ‘Come on back home baby.’ And that’s not okay,” said McDaniel supporter Grant Sowell.
“Do you think there will ever be unification in the Republican Party between McDaniel and Cochran supporters?” I asked.
“Sometimes things have to come to a head. And these are one of those situations. It had to come to a head,” said Sowell.
“I think once we get a really fair election, then we’ll get to unify and move on,” said McDaniel supporter Renee Hood.
Speaker of the House Phillip Gunn says the GOP and Tea Party should work together and find unity.
