Mississippi Senate challenger Chris McDaniel offered his thoughts on reparations for slavery and immigration in a radio clip that resurfaced Thursday.
McDaniel discussed how he'd handle a hypothetical tax increase to pay reparations to the descendants of slaves. "If they pass reparations, and my taxes go up," McDaniel said, "I ain't paying taxes."
He also shared views on illegal immigration to the United States, saying the "millions of illegals pouring across the border" seeking citizenship will "want theirs."
A spokesman for McDaniel told the Journal that "the liberal press clearly loves to attack conservatives" and that McDaniel will "continue to deliver his conservative message."
McDaniel is challenging longtime Republican Senator Thad Cochran.
