I'M Very thank because your visit in the my website with title Thad Cochran. Happy reading

Mississippi (WKRG) - A Mississippi Senate candidate wants to know if Confederate General Robert E. Lee is a hero or a villain.

State Senator Chris McDaniel is running to fill the remaining term of Senator Thad Cochran. McDaniel posted this poll on his Facebook page this week: "In light of all the political correctness and leftist hysteria, I'm curious about what you think: How should Robert E. Lee be remembered?"  The options given were: Hero. Or Villain.

Nearly 150 thousand people voted and 91% call General Lee a villain. McDaniel is running against Sen. Cindy Hyde-Smith.  She was appointed to fill Cochran’s seat after he retired earlier this year.  The winner of the primary could face Democrat Mike Espy, a former U.S. House member who served as President Bill Clinton’s agriculture secretary.

In light of all the political correctness and leftist hysteria, I’m curious about what you think: How should Robert E. Lee be remembered?

— Sen. Chris McDaniel (@senatormcdaniel) August 16, 2018 Prior to McDaniel's poll, he tweeted in defense of the Confederate General.  He wrote:

Here's the irony: Robert E. Lee was the most decorated soldier in the U.S. Army.  He was a man of unimpeachable integrity.  Lincoln offered him command of the Union Army, but Lee refused only because his loyalty was to Virginia.  Lee opposed both secession and slavery.  And yet to the historically illiterate left, a man who opposed both slavery and secession has come to symbolize both secession and slavery.

According to a poll, McDaniel is in third place in the race for US Senate to be decided in November.
