McDaniel Says GOP Should Be Purged

Chris McDaniel (R) that other Republicans used "race-baiting" to hurt him in a U.S. Senate primary, and the GOP needs to be "purged" of people who use racially inflammatory campaign techniques against members of their own party, the Jackson Clarion Ledger reports.

Said McDaniel: "They hired Democratic operatives to go out into Democratic communities and call me a racist. That's despicable. It's the scarlet letter that they know works in society. It's the way Democrats campaign. It's the way liberals campaign."

He added: "It goes to show that there are elements within our own party that have to be purged. There are elements within our own party that have no business being Republicans. Republicans should not behave in that fashion."
