Legal Insurrection: Shocking Cochran ads link McDaniel to KKK

[The ads] claimed that supporters of conservative McDaniel had connections to the Ku Klux Klan and that McDaniel had a ‘racist agenda.’ They also warned that black Democrats ‘could lose food stamps, housing assistance, student loans, early breakfast and lunch programs and disaster assistance’ if he were to become the Republican U.S. Senate nominee.
‘Vote against the tea party. Vote Thad Cochran,’ one ad said. ‘If the tea party, with their racist ideas, win, we will be sent back to the ’50s and ’60s.’

Welfare programs...

such as food stamps, federal education funding, housing, etc. are done by block grants to each state using a general formula. And Senators have zero control over how those funds are disbursed and allocated within their State (Rand Paul introduced a bill to allow states to have some control).

McDaniel couldn't cause Mississippians to lose those welfare benefits even if he wanted to. All lies. The only way for them to lose monies within the current system is if all block grants to all States were reduced equally at the same time. This would require a plurality of tea party-minded Senators to be elected.
