Press releases, Facebook wars, and blog posts. Such is the record of the United Conservative Fund. The PAC was formed by State Senator Chris McDaniel as he promised to launch a conservative movement to challenge the Mississippi Republican establishment. However, campaign finance reports show the UCF PAC has barely raised any money and has not supported any candidates.
The UCF website states:
The initial filing at the Secretary of State's office states the UCF is "dedicated to funding and supporting conservative candidates to office."
MISSISSIPPI’S CHRIS MCDANIEL LAUNCHES NEW PAC DESIGNED TO CRACK GOP ESTABLISHMENT
On Friday, McDaniel will be announcing—he told Breitbart News exclusively—a new Political Action Committee (PAC) designed to help conservatives across Mississippi, and the nation, get elected to political office, replacing GOP establishment politicians.
The PAC, titled the United Conservatives Fund will focus on “electing conservatives and holding Republicans accountable while messaging conservatism in a way that secures conservatives get a chance to be elected even over some of those in the establishment,” McDaniel tells Breitbart....
Instead of coasting back into their jobs, however, the new effort McDaniel is officially leading is aimed at wreaking havoc on the good-old-boys in Mississippi’s GOP establishment: They’re going to face well-funded and trained primary challengers, with a serious counter-narrative being put forward for the first time in the state from an official entity outside that of either the Republican or Democratic parties. .....
