Remember Mississippi: How Chris McDaniel Exposed the GOP Establishment and Inspired a Revolution (Paperback)
by Ryan S. Walters
The Republican "civil war" is currently raging between the ruling establishment and defiant conservatives. Thus far, the greatest battle of this conflict occurred in Mississippi 2014 in a fight over a US Senate seat between the incumbent establishment stalwart Thad Cochran and young, charismatic conservative Chris McDaniel. This race held far-reaching consequences beyond Mississippi.
To maintain their hold on the Senate seat, the GOP establishment shamelessly trashed McDaniel, their party’s rising conservative star, with vicious allegations which unwittingly ignited a full-blown rebellion. As a result, there arose a massive conservative grassroots insurgency intent on taking down the ruling Republican Establishment. This insurgency contributed to the nomination of Donald Trump in 2016 and his eventual election to the presidency.

“Every member of the liberty movement … needs to read this book.”
– Ron Paul, former US Congressman and Presidential Candidate
“Desperate to maintain power, the ruling establishment pulled out every dirty trick in the book in order to crush a popular pro-liberty insurgency—including smearing the insurgent candidate and his followers it as racists. Did this happen in foreign country that the US Government is targeted for regime change? No, it happened in the United States, specifically in the 2014 Mississippi GOP primary battle between pro-liberty insurgent Chris McDaniel and long-term establishment Senator Thad Cochran. Every member of the liberty movement who still labors under the delusion that the political class will abide by the Marques of Queensbury rules or can ever be ‘won over’ to the side of individual liberty and constitutional government needs to read this book.”
- Ron Paul, former US Congressman and Presidential Candidate
"Chris McDaniel's bold conservative leadership breaks the mold in Mississippi. His unapologetic fight for conservatism, limited government, strong national defense, and traditional family values is a clarion call for our time, and exactly what the United States needs. Remember Mississippi, the official history of Mississippi's 2014 Republican primary, shatters the notion that establishment Republicans will readily include conservatives in their 'big tent.'"
—Ken Cuccinelli, former Virginia Attorney General and president of the Senate Conservatives Fund
“Chris McDaniel successfully fought the political class of both parties’ establishments in Washington, D.C. That’s why the swamp sewer in Washington fears him so much. In many ways, the open warfare between the grassroots and establishment that led to President Trump’s victory started in the Mississippi summer in 2014 when the establishment engaged in dirty tricks against Chris. He’s a warrior. This book is must read.”
—Matthew Boyle Washington Political Editor Breitbart News
“The story of what happened to Chris McDaniel and Mississippi conservatives in 2014 is one of the most important modern political tales to be told. For it was really the first time the lies, frauds, and schemes hatched by the GOP -- to go after conservatives harder and dirtier than they ever do Democrats -- first came to light with the general public. May this book let even more of the light pierce the darkness, because we know cockroaches can’t handle the light.”
- Steve Deace, host of the Steve Deace Show on CRTV and contributor to Conservative Review
“As someone who got to know Chris McDaniel in and away from politics it was appalling to see to what depth the establishment of the Republican Party would sink to protect Thad Cochran. That tactic was to link Chris to the KKK, where no such link exists. As Conservatives we expect that from the Democrats but this treatment came from the GOP. As Republican voters move closer to the Constitution and libertarians are seen as the future, the establishment is doing whatever it takes to hang onto control. This book chronicles that struggle between the big government insider class versus the new wave of limited government Conservatives.”
-Andrew Wilkow, host of “The Wilkow Majority” on SiriusXM Patriot
“Ryan Walters has exposed the real battle within the GOP, one that has been brewing for nearly thirty years. This isn't a "boys on the bus" book about a single election in Mississippi, but a deep discussion about the future direction of conservatism in America and the seedy tactics the establishment wing of the Republican Party will use to gain and maintain power. Before Trump vs. the establishment, there was Reagan vs. Ford and Buchanan vs. Bush and Chris McDaniel vs. Thad Cochran in Mississippi. That election foreshadowed the Trump revolution of 2016. Readers will be left wondering how they ever supported or voted for sellouts like Cochran and will wish for a do-over.”
