Democrats in Mississippi registering as Republicans to Stop McDaniel

A new strategy is emerging to halt the advancement of the far right wing “purists” know as the Tea Party, whose politicians run as Republicans but even further to the far right, of the right wing Republican.

Democrats are registering as Republicans so they can vote in Republican primaries and lend support to the Republican candidates, in order to stop the advancement of the right wing extremist Tea Party candidates.

This morning on the MSNBC show, “NOW with Alex Wagner”, she reports that Democrats in Mississippi are registering with the Republican Party so they can stop Tea Party backed state Sen. Chris McDaniel who is challenging Republican U.S. Senator Thad Cochran who will be seeking his seventh term in 2014.

NPR reports that shortly after McDaniel announced that he will run for the U.S. Senate seat held by Cochran, McDaniel received the endorsements of three influential conservative outside groups: Club for Growth, Senate Conservatives Fund and Madison Project. SCF’s Super PAC arm, and the group Senate Conservatives Action, quickly ran a statewide television ad in support of McDaniel last month after his announcement.
