Chris McDaniel to Challenge Election Results
Breitbart ^ | June 24, 2014 | Matthew Boyle

Posted on 06/25/2014 4:25:37 AM PDT by don-o

snip

There were 24,889 votes cast in Hinds County in the runoff—17,927 were for Cochran and 6,962 were for McDaniel—but only 20,567 Republican voters are listed in Hinds County, according to the well-known Labels and Lists Voter Data Base. The extraordinarily high turnout in Hinds County is much more than what happened in Hinds County in the primary just a few weeks ago, when 16,640 total votes were cast—10,928 for Cochran and 5,621 for McDaniel.

When asked if that seems a bit off, Cole responded: “Right.”

“I noticed in his speech, McDaniel said ‘dozens of irregularities,’” Cole said. “So I suspect he’ll look into some of the bigger counties like Hinds, Madison, maybe Bolivar up in the north delta—they had a big turnout. Forrest is always a place—that’s where the contested mayor’s race was last year. They went to court and it had to be done over because of irregularities. So, Forrest could be a place to look—but I don’t know where all these irregularities could be.”

Thad called upon his Democrat friends to vote for him.

If they also voted in the Democrat primary, their votes will be thrown out!

Its a bizarre and foolish law that invites crossovers to disrupt races.

If I understand correctly democrats can vote in the GOP runoff if they didn’t vote in the democrat primary.

“In an interview by phone with Breitbart News late Tuesday evening after the McDaniel headquarters cleared out, state Democratic Party chairman Rickey Cole said McDaniel should challenge the election results. “Clearly there was some sloppiness to say the least, and probably some failures to comply with the law,” Cole told Breitbart News.”

Cole (Dem state chairman) said the most likely error in favor of Cochran could be where Democrats who voted in the June 3 Democratic primary were allowed to vote in the GOP primary runoff on Tuesday. “That’d be the very first thing I’d look for,” Cole said

Wow , there's hope.

Sound advise from the head of the Democratic Party? Just saw a flying pig outside my bedroom window.

If Conservatives in Mississippi have any convictions, let there be a Democrat elected in November. Better a liberal than a senile old POS.

Good.

Cochran/GOPE cannot be handed this seat without a fight.

Cochran asked for and got help from Dems. Cochran cheated too [see the irregularities.] They don’t follow laws... and I assert that we should expect that and fight back - good job McDaniel!

This HAS to be made very painful to the GOPE. Very painful. Vote for the Dem in the general. But Cochran must not survive.

This is war and we’d better start fighting it - we’ve just been living it and getting thrashed. Time to fight it.

This MS election shows how it’s a war between the gov’t [lib dems plus GOPE] vs America.

The root of the problem is open primaries (no registration by party.)

I have heard people in Tennessee say, “I am a registered Republican (or Democrat.)” This is untrue in an open state.

I thought McDaniel had a comfortable margin in the pre-election polling?

What happened?

Meanwhile, I hope that Cochroach loses in the general election. I’d rather have a filthy DemonRAT than a backstabbing, filthy thug like Cochroach.

The ruling coalition is united around several things that the people are against. They are skilled at setting up phony issues (or issues that don’t concern the Federal government) to break up the formation of any possible other coalition.

Republicans and Democrats agree that the purpose of the State is redistribution. How much, and to whom, and under what circumstances, there are disagreements. But no elected officials of either Party believe that it is wrong to take from you and give to another of their own choosing, for reasons that make sense to them.

Republicans and Democrats agree that you have “rights” - lots of them. They also agree that any question ABOUT your “rights”, or whether or not something IS a “right”, should not be decided by a political process because that is “divisive”. So, they both agree that the voice of “the People” as contemplated in Articles IX and X can only be voiced by nine unelected life tenure judges, and that five of them, at any time or for any reason, can give new “rights” and take away old ones, particularly if those old ones arise out of majority voting.

Republicans and Democrats all believe in “diversity”. They, ignoring completely the results of all social science research on this subject, and contrary to millennia of human experience and wisdom, believe that the more “diverse” our country, its institutions, and any private entities within her become, the more cohesive and productive we will become.

Republicans and Democrats almost all believe in “free trade” and “immigration”. These things are good for various constituencies of both parties while they wreck the economy and the nation.

Many of the People, perhaps a majority, do not believe in any of these things. But in our existing system, captive as it is to the MSM-mandated “process” for choosing two candidates for POTUS neither of whom will change a thing, leaves the People with no voice.

Something’s gonna blow.

I haven’t rad too much about it recently, but there was a time that Cochran was known for his allegiance to the trial lawyers. I guess there are a whole lot of rats in his camp.

A write in campaign CAN win.

Look at the June 3 results here:
http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-tran/elections/2014-primaries-june3

(Mississippi results are down the page)

Notice the top vote getter that night was McDaniel. The ENTIRE Democrat slate didn’t get HALF the votes of EITHER Republican.

I don’t think Cochran will get DEMOCRAT votes in the general election, do you?

McDaniel could repeat what he did on June 3 and be the next Senator from Mississippi.

Probably they polled Republican voters, Democrats were allowed to vote in the run off. Cochran stampeded blacks to the polls with robocalls about the “racist Tea Party” candidate.

people need to see exactly what was done here.

We are assuming that there is still enough basic comprehension of both the political process and basic math for the bare facts to make an impression on the sheeple.

It takes more that three sentences and a picture to lay out the story, as the length of the article demonstrates.

Perhaps, if the lede refers to Cochran's confessed barnyard bestiality, it can get some traction.

You know, I’m not even mad at this result, as it hurts the GOPEs far more to “win”. Either they lose the election fair and square (which is what would have happened), or they destroy themselves in the minds of the still identified GOP base. Like who would actually feel great about knowing that the “leadership” used race-baiting and Democrats to win a run-off to keep some old fart in office?

We should get every elected Republican on record as to what they think of this level of sleaze.

The GOP has apparently decided to destroy their own senate candidate here in Michigan. Terri Land is an establishment candidate but has a reputation for integrity and has been friendly to the tea party and conservatives. The GOP wanted full on RINO Dave Camp to run but he declined.

Just this morning Frank the Liberal Luntz was calling her ad from a couple months ago the worst of the season. It was an OK ad that was for a very specific situation. Luntz failed to mention her other issue oriented ads that are currently running.

"Cochran outperformed his vote totals from the primary election three weeks ago in many parts of Mississippi and he held a lead throughout the night. With 99 percent of precincts reporting, Cochran beat McDaniel 50.9 percent to 49.1 percent. They were separated by about 6,600 votes out of more than 372,000 cast.

Cochran relied heavily on boosting voter turnout in the runoff among not only mainstream Republicans but also black Democrats, whom his campaign and its allies aggressively courted in the final days of the campaign."


RECOUNT!!!!

I kind of agree about the challenge being successful. But I totally agree with the fight.

This has to be apocalipse-type painful for the GOPE.

Also important - any voters found to have voted improperly must be taken to court and made to spend a bunch of money defending themselves. This HAS to be made too costly to do again.

NOW is the time to fight this illegal voting tsunami. Its time to get voter ID in EVERY state and county.

I agree - except - probably the only way universal voter ID gets passed is by a national ID card for all legal citizens. Illegal residents of all sorts would still be illegal, same as now.

But, even considering that, I'm for it because as it is now we already have national ID via SS numbers or tax ID number. So go ahead and tighten the voting requirements.

While I agree that the lack of a closed primary is part of the problem, we can’t discount the politics of envy. Mike Church stated on his program a couple months ago that our situation will likely not change because the Fed. government has the “candy” and there are too many people on both sides of the political aisle with their hands open. I wonder if we will ever have a UKIP type event until there is a real financial collapse(?). If the recount shows that Cochran won “fair and square” with his Dem votes what will we do then? I pray I am wrong.

A recount won’t work in this case.

The assumption isn’t that ballot boxes were stuffed, it’s that Dems who voted in the Dem primary crossed over to give Cochrane his winning margin.

If that’s proved, the only possible recourse is another election. Because of the secret ballot, you can’t just throw out Cochrane votes. That would mean you not only knew that Dem double-dip votes went for him, but could also quantfy them.

Cochrane’s done, tho. Conservatives wont just come home to him after this, and the Blacks who crossed over yesterday WILL run home to the Dems in the November general election.

Party only primaries, otherwise known as “closed” primaries, should be (and should have been) one of our main priorities. Time and time again we have allowed Democrats to pick our candidates and suddenly people have having meltdowns over it? Only membership of a party should be able to determine the party candidate, that is simple common sense. Further there has to be rules in place for changing party affiliation quickly, because Dems used to play that trick too.

It wouldn’t be hard, but the Republicans don’t want to. Tehy want to make sure the Republican candidate is a RINO.
