ELLISVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) - State Senator Chris McDaniel says he will make an announcement early next week about his political future.
The Republican from Ellisville posted on Facebook Saturday night that he will make that announcement live on Facebook at 6 p.m. Monday.
"Next week should be interesting," McDaniel said at the end of his Facebook post.
McDaniel has said he has been looking at a run for the United States Senate in the GOP primary against incumbent Senator Roger Wicker of Tupelo. Qualifying for that primary ends March 1 at 5 p.m.
There has been speculation he could run for Senator Thad Cochran's seat if the senior senator decides to step down or run for lieutenant governor next year. McDaniel tried to unseat Cochran in 2014 but lost.
