Senator Chris McDaniel Statement on MS Ed. Sec. Carey Wright’s Reversal On Transgender Bathroom Policy

Senator Chris McDaniel released the following statement regarding Mississippi Superintendent of Education Carey Wright changing her position on implementing a transgender bathroom policy in Mississippi schools

“State Superintendent Dr. Carey Wright switched positions on Obama’s transgender bathroom mandate. She the announcement Wednesday morning in a brief statement, “Pending a discussion with the Mississippi State Board of Education, I am instructing the Mississippi Department of Education to follow the lead of state leadership and take no action at this time regarding the non-regulatory guidance from the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Education.”

While her reversal is welcome, her willingness to embrace the unlawful order and a liberal social agenda makes her unfit for the position she holds, especially in Mississippi.

Qualifying her statement with the phrase “at this time” is concerning. Obama’s order is NOT appropriate at any time.

She’s changed her mind, if only for a moment. But it’s time we change her position permanently.”
