McDaniel must include broader voter audience
I used to dismiss claims that the Tea Party was racist and extremist, and I still believe the majority of its members are good people who simply want the country to do better.
However, many of the candidates backed by the group portray an image of extremism and intolerance.
Former U.S. Senate front-runner Chris McDaniel is no exception. His statements following his loss last week damaged the Tea Party and only offered more fodder for those who accuse the group of being an exclusive, whites-only club.
