State Sen. Chris McDaniel (R) “said Monday he's ‘at peace’ and will make an announcement ‘in a matter of weeks’ about his political future. McDaniel has been considering both a primary challenge to U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker (R) next year and a run for lieutenant governor in 2019.”

"I've come to peace with one of those seats," he said. "Internally, I'm at peace. I will make an announcement one way or the other in a matter of weeks." (Jackson Clarion-Ledger)
