Geoff Pender reports rumblings about State Senator Chris McDaniel challenging U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker in 2018 are still ongoing. But McDaniel also let it be known he’s considering a run for statewide office and watching it “closely”.

The report was prompted by Wicker releasing to media a commissioned poll that had him “up by double-digits out in front of McDaniel.”

I heard from the McDaniel camp,” Pender wrote. “which pointed out that — if the Wicker polling is accurate — McDaniel’s numbers before he challenged Cochran looked as bad or worse and he blew them away.”

But Senator McDaniel also revealed that he is still eyeing another office. “He’s considering a run for lieutenant governor.”

All options are on the table, but as of today, lieutenant governor and U.S. Senate are the races we’re looking at closely,” McDaniel said.
