    A conservative media consultant is accusing the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) of laundering money through a political consulting firm to a shadowy SuperPAC that ran racist negative ads attacking the Tea Party and Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi runoff election.

    The Daily Mail has obtained three racially-charged radio ads placed by organizations that worked to help incumbent U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) stage his come from behind run-off victory this week. [The ads] claimed that supporters of conservative McDaniel had connections to the Ku Klux Klan and that McDaniel had a ‘racist agenda.’ They also warned that black Democrats ‘could lose food stamps, housing assistance, student loans, early breakfast and lunch programs and disaster assistance’ if he were to become the Republican U.S. Senate nominee. ‘Vote against the tea party. Vote Thad Cochran,’ one ad said. ‘If the tea party,...

    It’s generally agreed that Thad Cochran squeaked out a win in Mississippi last night in part by getting Democrats, especially African Americans, to turn out. Here’s a flier that was distributed in heavily black precincts suggesting how he accomplished this:

    The New Republic ^ | June 25, 2014 | Alec MacGillis
    Chris McDaniel, the arch-conservative state senator who unexpectedly lost his primary runoff election yesterday to unseat Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran, is dead right: The race was decided by non-Republicans. And not just that, but a certain type of non-Republicans taking advantage of the state's open-primary system: African-Americans, or, as McDaniel referred to them in his defiant non-concession speech, “liberal Democrats,” which appears to be the de-racialized code word of choice for some conservative Republicans when talking about black voters. The evidence is in the maps and numbers. Turnout was up statewide compared with the June 3 primary in which McDaniel...

    Chris McDaniel May Fight Mississippi GOP Senate Primary Loss In Court Cochran's tea party challenger, Chris McDaniel, refused to concede and in a statement Wednesday afternoon did not rule out the possibility of taking his case to court. McDaniel and many of his supporters are incensed that Cochran achieved his victory in part by winning votes from Democrats, who were able to take part in the contest because of the state's open primary law. Tuesday's runoff was 67,000 votes higher than in the first round of voting earlier this month — a rare occurrence. Some of the biggest increases came...

    JACKSON, Miss. — For the first time since President Richard M. Nixon’s divisive “Southern strategy” that sent whites to the Republican Party and blacks to the Democrats, African-American voters have come out in force for a Republican in the Deep South. Now they are hoping to flex political muscles long atrophied after supporting Senator Thad Cochran on Tuesday in his runoff victory against a Tea Party challenger.

    You have to hand it to the GOP establishment. When their interests are threatened, they pull out all the stops. They demonstrated that in dragging GOP senator Thad Cochran across the finish line in tonight’s runoff in Mississippi. Imagine if a tea-party candidate in some state had openly appealed to registered Libertarians to help him win a close primary runoff. There would have been howls of outrage that people who didn’t agree with Republican values on social issues and foreign policy were being invited to decide a GOP race. Well, Thad Cochran’s allies performed a version of that ploy tonight...

    The Truth
    After the shameful and disgusting actions of the GOP Establishment in the Mississippi Republican U.S. Senate runoff, where they used Democrat tactics of screaming racism and promising big government to get the vote out to Democrat voters to cross over and help Thad Cochran win, is it time that conservatives realize that a GOPE can never be trusted? Time and time again, the ruling class aka Karl Rove, Boss Hogg Barbour, big donors, K Street lobbyists and RINO's continue to stab conservatives in the back and would rather risk losing an election to a Democrat than give up their power...

    The antitax Club for Growth on Wednesday called on Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) to end his campaign a day after a too-close-to-call primary against tea party-backed Chris McDaniel that could be headed to a runoff. “Yesterday’s historic vote makes it clear that Mississippians are ready to turn the page to a new generation of bold, conservative leadership. Senator Cochran has served honorably, but the rationale for his candidacy ended yesterday. He said he didn’t want to run again, but everyone asked him to. Well, a plurality of Mississippi Republican voters just proved that they don’t want him to,” said Club...

    Restless Democrats, anti-tax GOP may team up to challenge Naifeh By Paula Wade wade@gomemphis.com November 8, 2002 NASHVILLE - House Speaker Jimmy Naifeh (D-Covington) may be facing opposition from dissident Democrats and anti-tax Republicans in the first serious challenge to his position in 12 years. The challenge would be a political earthquake. Rep. Frank Buck (D-Dowelltown), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, confirmed that he has been talking to Democrats and Republicans about a possible bipartisan coalition that would elect him as House speaker, and essentially agree to share powerful committee chairmanships and officerships with GOP lawmakers.
