The U.S. Cham­ber of Com­merce has gone up with its first ad in the state slam­ming state Sen. Chris McDaniel (R) for his stance on a tort re­form pack­age. The spot says McDaniel “[used] the courts to seek an enorm­ous pay­day”¦ win­ning over $25 mil­lion in just one case.” The Cham­ber is pick­ing six-term Sen. Thad Co­chran, who has re­ceived an 88 per­cent life­time rat­ing from the group. No word on how long the spot will run, but the Cham­ber calls it a “size­able buy” that will run statewide.

QUOTED: BuzzFeed has com­piled more clips from McDaniel’s ra­dio show The Right Side in 2005 and an­oth­er pro­gram he co-hos­ted Right Talk. High­lights in­clude him call­ing Al Jaz­eera “the mouth­piece of al Qaeda,” sug­gest­ing an Al Jaz­eera home shop­ping net­work would sell bur­qas, swords and san­dals. (BuzzFeed)
