Post-Election and Primary Runoff Information

Delbert Hosemann
Secretary of State

Process for Certifying Election Results in a Party Primary: 

All primary elections in the State of Mississippi are run by the respective state parties. State law requires the transmittal of certified election results to the State Party Executive Committees of the Democratic and Republican Parties.  The State Party Executive Committees compile the certified results from each county and certify their election results.  The Mississippi Secretary of State’s Office does not certify the results of a Primary Election.  The certification is performed by the State Party Executive Committees.  The State Executive Committees have ten (10) days from the date of the election (June 13, 2014) to submit certified results to the Secretary of State’s Office.  The Secretary of State’s Office accepts the certified results by the State Executive Committees on behalf of the State of Mississippi.  (Miss. Code Ann §23-15-599)

Onward to victory. My prediction is Cochran refuses to debate as media calls grow louder. He loses credibility, and then loses the runoff by 8 points.

Wow! It sure is a good thing Santorum showed up to give McDaniels that little extra oomph over Cochran!

Looks like Boss Hogg(Haley Barbour) and his clan could not gin up
enough votes in Hinds County to overtake McDaniel. Even a 3 hour delay
in reporting the final 25% of Hinds County, which gave them plenty of time
to gin up votes, wasn’t enough.

We will soon find out by the type of ads Boss Hogg runs against McDaniel
in the runoff if the GOP really wants a majority in the senate or has been
lying all along.

If McConnell is lagging in Kentucky, the powers may way to husband funds for McConnell. However, with Obama's coal regulations, Grimes has been sacrificed on the alter of Obama.

I agree with your script but I'll double your margin to 16 pts. Cochran's lost the national GOPe. His base will lose heart and enthusiasm is all on McDaniels' side. This is the dynamic we've seen repeatedly in TX runoffs and it has resulted in blowouts more often than not [of course, Cochran is no Dewhurst - to his credit].

Phooey.

Cochran ran in the primary as the GOPe guy. McDaniel ran as the Tea Party fave, without GOPe support.

Some pundit said GOPe would be pulling support from Cochran from here, presumably as they were not hopeful as McDaniel forced the runoff.

McDaniel has done fine without GOPe support so far

Hey Viennacon!

You and Hoodat did a lot of hard work last night on the tread.
And your predictions were very accurate.

McDaniel beats Cochroach in votes. Even the crossover RAT votes
and ginned up ballots in Hinds County wasn’t enough.

Last nights thread was as great as the Texas thread!

“Well the GOP should at least be happy there is a tea party republican in the senate instead of a democrat.”

The truth is the GOP elite always prefers a democrat to a tea party republican.

For this runoff (as for any other future federal office runoffs), Mississippi is using “ranked choice ballots” for overseas and out-of-state military voters to use. See details in the linked article. Our military voters need to clearly understand that they received those “if needed” runoff ballots at the same time they got their primary ballot.

If they have not completed and returned that “2nd (if needed runoff) ballot” it along with their primary ballot they need to complete it and mail it back NOW.

Be sure to remind all your military and overseas constitutional conservative Mississippians about this. THESE MILITARY AND OVERSEAS VOTERS WILL NOT BE RECEIVING ANOTHER “RUN OFF” BALLOT - THEY MUST USE THE 2ND BALLOT (RANKED VOTING) THEY RECEIVED IN THE SAME MAILING AS THEIR PRIMARY BALLOT. I don’t know for sure but even if they didn’t mail their primary ballot back, they likely could still return their 2nd “ranked voting” ballot and it would count in the runoff.

Well, I was pessimistic to begin with. We started ahead then dropped back to that familiar 47% territory... but over time, Cochran dropped and McDaniel rose. Very happy to have a victory under our belt. I just wish Cochran would drop out now. He didn’t even show up yesterday to thank his supporters for crying out loud.

He knows he doesn’t stand a chance. He got at least 20,000 Democrat crossover votes. There is no reason for them to go to the polls twice. McDaniel starts ahead by 5-10% points.

I am beginning to think there is a “Health Reason” Cochran is not showing
up at his victory party or willing to debate or willing to sit down with media
for a question and answer session.
Something is going on with Cochran and his campaign is hiding him.

Even today, Cochran did not announce in a press conference that is
is going to fight for Mississippi. His campaign released a “press statement”.
His campaign is hiding him.

Only those who voted in yesterday's Republican primary can vote in the run-off.

To Mississippians:

Would the Carey voters tend to go for Cochran or or McDaniel in the run-off?

It looks like McDaniel only needed 1702 more votes to attain the magic 50%+1.

I think more than 8, but less than 16. If I understand the process, the Democrats that voted in the primary can still vote the run-off. Cochran will hold them or they’ll stay home. Once Cochran’s personal life gets a bigger story and he refuses to debate or debates and gets creamed the vote total will drop like a stone.

The general pattern in Texas for runoffs is that a strong tea party candidate has a better chance of winning because the tea party voters are more tenacious in showing up to vote. Runoffs typically have low voter turnout. Texas had only about 3.5 percent turnout. If Senator John Cornyn had a viable opponent and had been forced into a runoff, he would have lost.

Check this out. Article says Cochran was being interviewed by a reporter
and after 30 minutes Cochran could not remember the reporters name.
AND, Cochran extended his hand for a handshake and re-introduced
himself again.

With these results so very close, could votes get thrown out that were ‘provisional’ and those voters do NOT supply the affidavit needed as described above?

IF Cochran voters did this type of voting & they don’t do the necessary follow-up, could it swing the results to McDaniel before the run-off is required???

Just asking.........There is only a 1386 vote difference, and how many ‘provisional’ votes did Cochran get???

“...the tea partier is just a troublesome bloke who keeps talking about Founding principles and that archaic document from a bygone age all the Constitution.”

Plus the tea party actually tracks voting records and expects those pesky politicians to keep their promises. Accountability is such a burden.
