Charles D. Borum, M.D. Endorses Chris
I would like to express my endorsement of Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi race for U.S. Senate. I know Thad Cochran is a good man. My father was a strong supporter of Cochran and I voted for Cochran in every election since I was 18 years old. That was then, but now there is a different reality in the United States. We are deep in debt and on a course headed for disaster. It is time to retire the old general and elect a young energetic warrior. I have met Chris McDaniel and have had conversation with him. He has been in my house. Chris McDaniel is intelligent, well read and he understands the responsibilities that the U.S. Constitution requires of a Senator elected to represent the citizens of his state. Chris McDaniel is an economic conservative who believes in what the U.S. Constitution was intended to protect. He believes that the U.S. government is suppose to protect individuals and not oppress them. Chris McDaniel has my vote and I hope that you will vote for him this Tuesday June 3.

I support Chris McDaniel because of two events that occurred last year. In the fall of 2013, a crucial vote came before the U.S. Senate. The House had passed a bill to fund all of the government except Obamacare. The Senate was to vote on cloture. I called Senator Cochran’s Washington office and asked how the senator would vote on the matter. I got the typical “run around” and was told that the senator had not indicated how he would vote. The next day, Senator Cochran voted with Harry Reid and the Democrats. As a result, we now have the abomination known as Obamacare. Mr. Cochran betrayed my trust, my values and the values of most citizens of Mississippi. I do not know what deals were made behind the scene to secure his vote. I do know that I cannot ever vote for Thad Cochran again.
Shortly after this vote, I heard Chris McDaniel speak. He was like a breath of fresh air. He spoke of liberty, the founding principles, and the greatness of America. He talked about restoring the Constitution. My wife and I checked his background and voting record in the Mississippi legislature. We concluded that Chris is genuine, that he believes what he says, and he acts according to his values. Those values are the values on which this nation was founded. They are my values. If you love liberty, they are your values.
I have met Chris McDaniel. I have spent time with him. I know him. He is a man of unbelievable courage and impeccable integrity. He went into this fight knowing that he would be attacked, vilified, and slandered by the opposition. Because I know him, and because I believe that we need to restore constitutional government to Washington, I support Chris.
It is time for Americans to stand up for America. It is time to stand against the corrupt “good ole boy” network in which our politicians sell their votes for favors and make back room deals with each other, special interest groups, and lobbyists. It is time to stop borrowing money for pork barrel projects, while we saddle our children and grandchildren with trillions of dollars of debt. It is time for someone who will vote “no” on amnesty for illegal aliens who take jobs from hardworking Americans. It is time for someone who has the courage to stand up to Barack Obama.
It is time for Chris McDaniel.
I was a supporter of Chris McDaniel years before I met him. My job requires that I travel by car many miles each week. I listen to different radio stations along the way. The first time I heard Chris speak I didn’t know who he was. Literally! I had missed his introduction at the beginning of the program. I was impressed with the responses he gave to the questions and the report he gave about the work he was doing. After hearing him on the program several times I decided to do a little research. I found that he is the kind of person I want representing me in Washington, D. C. His hard work as a state Senator speaks well for him. I believe him to be an honorable man of good character. He conducts himself with honesty and integrity. It is time to replace the old guard in Washington with someone we can trust. A man who is a true constitutional conservative. I truly believe he is the best man for the job. I and my family will stand for him on June 3rd when we cast our votes for Chris McDaniel as US Senator. Please join us!
In all Sincerity,

Why I Am Supporting Chris McDaniel
Our national debt is now at 17.5 trillion dollars. Senator Thad Cochran has been in Washington for 42 years. When he took office our nation’s debt was 427 billion dollars. Senator Cochran’s record speaks volumes. Senator Thad Cochran has the second most liberal voting record for Republican Senators during President Obama’s past five years as reported by the American Conservative Union. The only Republican Senator with a more liberal voting record is Susan Collins from Maine. Senator Cochran has continually voted to increase rather than decrease the size of government. He has frequently voted to increase the debt ceiling limit for a total of about 7.25 billion dollars. In 2010 he led Congress in earmark spending. His pet projects totaled 16.5 billion dollars for that year. Senator Cochran has also voted for “Cash for Clunkers”, the “Bridge to Nowhere”, increasing gasoline taxes and income taxes, and bailing out Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae. Senator Cochran was quoted as saying, “‘I think that right now what Americans want most from their government is less government,’ Cochran said.” (The Jackson Clarion Ledger/AP, 1/28/79). His statement was true in 1979 and is true today. But has he lived by this statement?
Senator Cochran’s opponent, Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel, believes in constitutional limited government. He is opposed to increasing the debt limit and is in favor of permanently banning earmarks and setting term limits. He will put the Mississippi taxpayer first. As chairman of the Mississippi Senate Conservative Coalition he has fought for protecting our personal freedoms from government infringement. He led the fight to restrict eminent domain takeover of personal property. Chris McDaniel also stands for the Second Amendment as he introduced the Firearms Freedom Protection Act.
Chris McDaniel has been given multiple awards from business associations. Chris McDaniel stands for the American worker by lowering tax demands on businesses and workers, supporting a border fence, enforcement of illegal immigration laws, and restoration of traditional legal immigration rates. Unfortunately, Senator Cochran has voted against funding for building the fence.
Chris McDaniel is a practicing lawyer in Mississippi and has been a member of many professional defense law associations and has served as Pro-Life Mississippi’s attorney pro-bono. He has supported tort reform during his time in the Mississippi Senate.
Also, according to Sam Hall of the Clarion Ledger, “McDaniel supports the tort reform measures already enacted in Mississippi and has spoken in favor of additional tort reform measures. [All] things considered, it’s disingenuous to use the “trial lawyer” label against McDaniel.” Senator Cochran on the other hand has sided with plaintiff attorneys and Democrats with multiple times for amendments that would weaken litigation reform.
Senator Cochran voted for cloture on the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, and he voted to fund Obamacare twice. Chris McDaniel was asked by Governor Phil Bryant to lead the lawsuit against Obamacare for the state of Mississippi.
I have heard Senator Chris McDaniel speak in person. I believe he is genuine and principled. He has the intellect, tenacity, and energy to fight the liberal agenda.
Lastly, in a head-to-head match-up against Democrat Travis Childers, polls show that Chris McDaniel has a comfortable lead. This dispels the falsehood that Chris McDaniel is too conservative to win a general election.
The question is do we want more of the same. I have two children and one more on the way. No doubt they will be faced with our current problems. If we stay on the same trend our nation will likely be subject to foreign nations to whom we owe. Men and women of America (and Mississippi) must wake up and vote for leaders who will fight for what we believe. A vote for Chris McDaniel is a vote for traditional values and a limited constitutional government. Vote for the only true conservative, Chris McDaniel, for U.S. Senate on June 3. Your children and grandchildren will thank you.
