The conservative Madison Project is purchasing a five-week radio ad in Mississippi to support tea party Senate candidate Chris McDaniel's primary campaign against long-time Republican Sen. Ted Cochran.

McDaniel, a Mississippi state senator, announced his plan last month to seek the GOP nomination over Cochran, who has not said whether he intends to seek a seventh term in office. McDaniel immediately drew endorsements from tea party and conservative groups, including the Madison Project.

Story continues below video.



Daniel Horowitz, of the Madison Project, said in a press release that the powerful PAC thinks McDaniel "will help bring more fighting power and reinforce those fighting on the front lines for individual liberty and limited government."

Horowitz noted that Republican Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Mike Lee of Utah are "waging a lonely battle against the bipartisan entrenched powers — the very people who have saddled us with a permanently lethargic economy, a higher cost of living, open borders and less liberty."

The Madison Project endorsed McDaniel the day the tea party favorite announced his intention to run for office, and was one of the first national groups to back the state senator's plans, said the Madison Project's Drew Ryun.

"McDaniel has a proven record in Mississippi that shows true dedication to the conservative movement," Ryun said.

The radio advertising was to begin on Mississippi radio stations Monday and run statewide for the next five weeks.

The spot says that McDaniel, as a state senator, brought a lawsuit against Obamacare on behalf of Mississippi and authored laws to protect Mississippi residents from the "burden of illegal immigration and Washington's failure to secure the borders."

Several other powerful conservative PACs, including the Senate Conservatives Fund, Club for Growth, and FreedomWorks, are also endorsing McDaniel over Cochran, who is just one of several incumbent Republicans nationwide being targeted by tea party supporters for defeat in the 2014 primaries.
