Seven Republican senators have now been linked to the racial attacks against conservative Chris McDaniel in Mississippi.

The financial report for Thad Cochran’s super PAC was released earlier this week and contains two alarming details.

First, it shows that the following seven GOP senators gave a total of $160,000 to Thad Cochran’s super PAC:

  • shameful seven1. Mitch McConnell (R-KY) — $50,000
  • 2. Bob Corker (R-TN) — $30,000
  • 3. Rob Portman (R-OH) — $25,000
  • 4. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) — $25,000
  • 5. Richard Burr (R-NC) — $20,000
  • 6. Roy Blunt (R-MO) — $5,000
  • 7. Mike Crapo (R-ID) — $5,000

Second, it shows that the PAC then gave a similar amount to a liberal group to run racial attacks against Chris McDaniel.

These senators fully funded ads that urged Democrats to “cross over and vote in the republican primary” and claimed that a McDaniel win would be a loss “for race relationships between blacks and whites.”

These seven Republican senators not only supported a 41-year incumbent who regularly votes with the Democrats, but they also funded a shadowy group to get Democrats to hijack the election. There were 25 other Senators who contributed to other PACS that were for Cochran, and there are only 12 Senators who did not contribute any money at all for Cochran.

The Thad Cochran super PAC run by Haley Barbour is the one that funded a shadowy group to get Democrats to hijack the election. Shameful. As Cuccinelli remarks; “These seven senators need to pay a heavy price for their actions…” But will they?
