Obviously Cochran is not going to resign. The governor should appoint McDaniel to his seat the GOP can be unified. Wicker is more open to amnesty than Cochran as well. Wicker only voted against the final cloture after he got hundreds of angry calls.
Good luck on that. Wicker plans to be there as long as Cockring. Time for a third party. Perhaps a hostile takeover of the Constitution Party
Thad won by roughly 7,000 votes tonight. Hinds county is roughly 75% Dem. A robo call went out stating “say no to the tea party. They hate the first black president... say no to the tea party by voting for Thad”
The call was placed mainly to african americans in MS
Here are the number from the main targeted county.. Hinds:
On June 3rd
T. Cochran (i)
T. Cochran (i)
Total vote count with 99.8% reporting:
I fully expect that, after reading this vanity post, Roger Wicker will resign his US Senate seat.
Bryant would only appoint a RINO, probably Haley Barbour, if Wicker did that.
You can bet that the MS politicians who supported Cochran
and the way he won this primary by begging for RAT votes
will come back to bite them.
Conservatives in MS will not easily forget the dirty trick the GOPe’s
played on them.
And unlike Cochran, the democrat voters who supported Cochran
will NOT turn out for them in district and statewide primary races
in the next election.
It is also possible that McDaniel supporters will not show up in November
or show up and write in a candidate as payback to the GOPe’s.
Payback is coming in one form or another.
McDaniel should pull a Lisa Murkowski, remember in 2010 Joe Miller won the Primary and then Lisa went to the Dems and the Libertarians in Alaska to ask for their ballot line, when they wouldn’t give it. She went write in.
Haley Barbour doesn’t want to have to deal with dissent on the Senate floor. Neither does Hilary, Biden, Michelle Obama, Chuck Hagel or John Kerry. None of these people would want to deal with any pushback at all.
Barbour ran for the Senate way back in 1982, which featured one of the widest disparities in age between incumbent and challenger (even more so than McDaniel-Cochran). This time as the GOP challenger to a still-sharp John Stennis, then 81, Stennis told the people of Mississippi not to send a boy (Barbour, who just turned 35 about 2 weeks before the election) to do a man’s job. It would be 21 years before Barbour recovered from that humiliation to run for office again there.
Honestly, the things people come up with.
Shades of “You’re no Jack Kennedy”, I would have went hard negative on Stennis’ decrepit old posterior.
No win scenario. If Barbour had tried a snarky reply, it would’ve made him look like he was beating up on an old man.
John Stennis.....Democrat or not was more a man than our GOP clowns
