Doesn't he mean larger? Or am I confused?
The paragraph describing what happened in Hattiesburg describes it better.....if there are more questionable ballots than the margin of victory...then election can be redone
Which means McDaniel has a good chance of getting a new election...if MS GOP-DNC doesn’t burn ballots first
“Doesn’t he mean larger? Or am I confused?”
He must have meant larger here.
Anyway, good to know there is already a precedent in Mississippi. I hope McDaniel holds tight.
Doesn’t he mean larger? Or am I confused?
No it does not mean larger.
If McDaniels can demonstrate that widespread fraud or irregularities that violate election laws were present, he can demonstrate the election was fundamentally tainted.
It will be a mess and even larger numbers of crossover votes in the second election may well cause him to lose again.
The Democrats are having a wonderful time with this and the first thing that his Democrat opponent , Rep Childers did was call for a series of public debates with the mentally failing Sen Cochran
Anyway, this election was the bomb that destroyed the Democrat Party's hold on the Governor's mansion. Prior to that election, Republicans had to change parties to Democrats for any hope of winning. After that election, there has been only one elected Democrat governor in Alabama.
McDaniel needs to tread carefully here. The paper trails are much better today, and he has legal precedence.
But the question is the same right now for both Cochran and McDaniel.
Can Cochran beat Democrat Travis Childers without the support of McDaniel's supporters? Probably not, because now that the Democrats have exercised their GOTV effort in the Republican runoff, they are no doubt salivating at what they might be able to accomplish in November.
Can McDaniel beat Childers without the support of Cochran's supporters? No way, because the same Democrat GOTV effort which carried Cochran over the line will be used to get Childers elected.
If McDaniel wins the election in court, and loses the general election to Childers, it will put back the TEA party movement. If Cochran loses to Childers, it will actually strengthen the TEA party movement.
I say McDaniel should gently pursue efforts to ensure the election was valid, but ultimately, let Cochran stew in his own juices.
