Miss. GOP certifies Cochran victory over McDaniel
The Biloxi Sun-Herald / The Associated Press ^ | July 7, 2014 | Emily Wagster Pettus and Jeff Amy

Posted on 07/07/2014 7:51:34 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

JACKSON, Miss. — U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran won the state's Republican primary runoff over challenger Chris McDaniel by 7,667 votes, according to a certification made by the state Republican Party and submitted to the Secretary of State on Monday, the legal deadline.

The result was wider than the 6,800-vote win counted by The Associated Press after the June election. Tallies usually change as county parties examine provisional ballots and finalize results....

Now he takes the challenge to a judge (by the way, the jump of about 1000 votes is CLEARLY manufactured since McDaniel announced he had over 6900 fraud ballot today, enough to overturn the previous result).

Once the certification has been done by the party, a judge may issue any legal ruling 10 days from now. McDaniel just has to file it.

None. The communists machine which included the GOP has it wrapped up. Lawsuit? Forget it. America is the land of the criminals running it and get used to it.

This was expected. Now he takes it to state court and sues to overturn it based on massive voter fraud, enough to cast the outcome in doubt.

If the state court refuses to overturn or even hear, then he can appeal or he can go to federal court and file for a federal injunction to run as an independent or as a write-in.

The vote buying and scale of the fraud may also attract state and federal prosecutors. The specter of prosecution should be enough for Cochran to promptly resign to preserve his pension and retirement perks.

Merely a coincidence that the vote tally increased.

Has McDaniel gotten into the 19K absentee ballots yet?

Also there are FEC violations being investigated, but those probably would not result in an election being overturned.

MS voters are souring on Cochran (and his puppetmasters, inc. Barbour) big time. I think there’s a good chance that Cochran will lose in the general election even if he prevails in this run off. Democrats must love this side show.

Yes the tallies have been on the books for 2 weeks now and the math is pretty simple. The 1000 extra votes were likely a ploy to diminish the argument that enough ineligible votes were found to cast doubt on the outcome.

But then McDaniel is not yet done counting. He still has the 19,000+ absentee ballots to scrutinize and more of the vote fraud is thought to be in those ballots.

Key though is finding a judge who gets it and orders a new election immediately.

Mississippi law requires McDaniel to file a challenge with the MS Republican Executive Committee. If they reject his challenge, which they will, then he can file suit.

Yeah, sure.

I am no longer a republican. I don’t care if the democrat wins and Obama has free reign for the next few years. The Republican Party is to blame. They are just as bad as the democrats.

I know a lot of people that feel exactly the same way.

McDaniel is a Republican that the National GOP spent money trying to defeat. It's a shame that the GOP can't bring itself to put up that much effort to defeat Democrats instead.

McDaniel is a conservative. If this election has taught us anything, it's that there is a noticeable difference.

If there is a hint of prosecutor involvement, then Cochran risks being kicked out of Congress, losing his pension and perks of congressional retirement. He will likely come up with an excuse of health to resign.

Many here have speculated wisely that the game plan has always been to have Cochran step down and have the Governor appoint a younger Barbour to the Senate seat.

Cochran did not want to run for another term. Somebody told him to do it and likely once he was reelected they would let him step down and replace him with someone the establishment approved of.

It was a repeat of McCain’s campaign against Hayworth in Arizona. If McCain had fought half as hard against Obama as he did against Hayworth, he probably would have eeked out a win for the Presidency.

Yeah, that’s the spirit, put your tail between your legs and bitch about the situation. That’s really adult! You has better effing well care whether or not Obama has free reign for two more years, because if he does the “transformation” will be pretty much complete.

And that malevolent bastard might not have been any better than FUBO because the GOPe would have gone along with some of the same $hit because it was McLame doing it.

Vote and work for Reform Party Shawn O Hara if McDaniel or another conservative can’t be a write in.
The Republican nominee will face two candidates in the Nov. 4 general election: Democratic former U.S. Rep. Travis Childers and the Reform Party’s Shawn O’Hara, who has run unsuccessfully for several statewide offices over the past 23 years.

Isn't a special election required, unless the remaining term is quite short? Which would not be the case for Cochran elected to a new six-year term.

Yeah, get out there and support the GOP! Once the GOP wins the senate, the highly aggressive Boehner/McConnell leadership team will relentlessly pursue all avenues impeach Obama and shut down the ‘Rats! See how stupid that looks when you read it?

As far as I can tell, the results being certified is a good thing, because now proper legal challenges can be mounted against it.

Hopefully, they’ll continue to fight and fight and fight until the liberals who claim to be Rs are ground down to a stump, and the Mississippi GOP can be rebuilt by actual conservatives.

You aren’t defeated until you accept defeat.
