McDaniel Issues Statement on Clayton Kelly Arrest
Laurel, MS – Republican Chris McDaniel today issued a statement on the arrest of Clayton Kelly, of Pearl, MS, for illegally obtaining a video of a vulnerable adult resident at St. Catherine’s Village in Madison, MS.
“I’ve reached out to Senator Cochran directly to express my abhorrence for the reprehensible actions of this individual. This criminal act is deeply offensive and my team and I categorically reject such appalling behavior. My thoughts and prayers are with Senator Cochran and his family,” McDaniel said. “Politics is about the exchange of ideas and this type of action has no place in politics whatsoever and will not be tolerated.”
The campaign has no relationship with Mr. Clayton Kelly in either a volunteer or official capacity
