“The anger that was generated in Mississippi, and what they did to Chris McDaniel, resonated throughout the country.”
Author of Remember Mississippi: How Chris McDaniel Exposed the GOP Establishment and Inspired a Revolution, joined Matt Boyle of Breitbart Radio Saturday morning.
Ryan Walters, a MississippiPEP Contributor, discussed the new book and how the disgusting tactics displayed against McDaniel in 2014 angered conservatives across the country and led to the outcome of the 2016 presidential campaign.
“How did Donald Trump win the Republican nomination in 2016? That has perplexed the pundits,” Walters noted.
“Why did all the establishment candidates crash and burn?” he asked.
“The anger that was generated in Mississippi, and what they did to Chris McDaniel, resonated throughout the country,” Walters maintained.
As a result, “grassroots conservatives retaliated” against the Republican establishment, he said, and that retaliation has provided the energy that continues to upset the political world.
“Without Mississippi in 2014, I don’t believe Donald Trump ever gets the nomination.” Walters said.
