    I’m not exactly sure what the reasoning is, here. It’s not because the race isn’t competitive. It is – or, more accurately, it could be. Jeanne Sheehan is ahead of Scott Brown by 6.5 points in the current RCP average, sure. But she’s also under 50% in the aggregate polling, which is the usual rule of thumb for an incumbent in trouble. This is the sort of situation where throwing some advertisting cash into the mix could really come in handy. Of course, it’s a little late for that now – back in May the Democrats blocked out about $1...

    Republicans are scrambling to save a seat that they thought was in the bag. Republican chances to win control of the Senate in the 2014 midterms, requiring a pickup of six seats, have taken a blow. Kansas, a state no one considered anything other than a safe hold for the party a few months ago, now appears to be slipping away. After a contentious primary resulting in a victory for the 78-year incumbent Pat Roberts over tea party challenger Milton Wolf, things have gone steadily south for Roberts. Wolf refused to close ranks and endorse Roberts. A self-funded independent, 45-year-old...

The case revolves around a contest to secure the Republican nomination to run for the US Senate from Mississippi. The history of this case...

Thad Cochran — on the grounds that McDaniel missed the deadline to even file his challenge.Judge Hollis McGehee agreed with the Cochran campaign's contention that under a 1959 state Supreme Court ruling, there is a 20-day deadline to file an election challenge. By contrast, McDaniel filed his challenge 41 days after after the June 24 Republican primary runoff, which Cochran won by about 7,000 votes.McDaniel's lawyer told the Jackson...

    Six weeks after the primary runoff election, Mississippi State Sen. Chris McDaniel is launching his formal legal challenge of the election results, saying the evidence is so conclusive that he will be calling for courts to recognize him as the true victor of the race rather than calling for a new election. “Chris McDaniel clearly, clearly won the Republican vote in the runoff,” McDaniel attorney Mitch Tyner said at a Monday press conference. “I say that very assuredly because that’s what the mathematics show. It’s not what I’m arguing. After the election, we did some post-election polling. We determined that...

McDaniel’s ultimate goal is to get a new election by showing that people who voted in the June 3 Democratic primary also voted in the June 24 Republican runoff. “This affects every voter in Mississippi,” said Mitchell Tyner, a member of McDaniel’s legal team, at a July 16 press conference from his Jackson office. “The...

    Sen. Thad Cochran's victory over state Sen. Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi GOP runoff can most likely be attributed to the African American and Democratic turnout, The New York Times reported. Cochran defeated McDaniel by 7,667 votes in a June 24 GOP runoff. About half of those votes came from heavily Democratic precincts. An analysis of 25 Mississippi precincts where President Barack Obama won at least 99 percent of the vote in 2012 showed that Cochran's vote total increased from 148 to 1,619. Obama voters who took part in the runoff backed Cochran 20 to 1. "The data strongly suggests...

He knew that the 1960 census had shown what he correctly considered a shift to the Right in the South that would make it difficult, if not impossible, for Democrats to win the White House in the future. Being the Machiavellian sneak that he was, Johnson probably looked back at his support for Operation Wetback which deported about 1.5 million Mexicans who were in the Southwest illegally as a lost opportunity to restock the Democrat voter pool.

    Sen. Thad Cochran may have won Mississippi’s GOP Senate run-off last week, but his tactics of courting normally Democratic voters, including high numbers of African Americans, has enraged tea party activists in Mississippi and that anger has rippled across the Republican landscape. The outrage among tea party supporters has spread to other states where conservatives are challenging establishment Republican candidates. Tea party activists perceive Cochran’s wooing as promising Democrats favors, as well as willing to do anything—even break with party principals—to win. “This wasn’t outreach. Outreach is promoting our values in other communities,” said FreedomWorks executive vice president Adam Brandon....

Thad Cochran emerged from the June 24 GOP senate primary run-off election against state senator Chris McDaniel with a margin of victory of about 6700 votes.

Now if any of those Democrats voted in the Democratic primary on June 3, they were ineligible to vote in the Cochran-McDaniel run-off. Thus, if the poll books indicate that somewhere in the neighborhood of 7000 votes were improperly and...

That 3,300 is, according to the McDaniel campaign, just from looking at voters who voted in the...

    True the Vote, the citizens initiative pursuing “free and fair elections for all Americans,” and 13 other plaintiffs have filed a lawsuit in federal court against the Mississippi Secretary of State and the Republican Party of Mississippi over the June 24 primary election runoff in which Sen. Thad Cochran edged tea-party challenger Chris McDaniel. The lawsuit asks the court to grant immediate access to voting records to inspect for possible illegal voting. It asserts that “defendants failed to properly abide by federal election record maintenance and open records provisions codified in the National Voter Registration Act of 1993 (NVRA). Records...
  • Allegations Of Vote Buying In Mississippi … (DAILY CALLER SHILLS FOR THAD COCHRAN!!!)

    If you read conservative outlets like RedState or Breitbart — or even if you just get Chris McDaniel’s email alerts — you’re aware of allegations of vote buying in Mississippi. If the allegations are true, it’s reprehensible. But the problem is that they’re coming from a less than reputable source. The African-American pastor alleging that he was offered money to buy votes for Thad Cochran was also paid by the reporter for the story. This is both ironic and problematic: If you’re the kind of person who is willing to participate in a vote-buying scheme, isn’t it possible you’d also...

    Reverend Steve Fielder, a pastor at the First Union Missionary Baptist Church in Meridian, Mississippi, has accused Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran’s campaign of engaging in an illegal and criminal campaign scheme to purchase the votes of black community members. The suspect votes were cast during Cochran’s successful effort to defeat Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel in the Mississippi Republican primary run-off held last week. If true, such an action would be clearly illegal under both federal law and Mississippi statutes, specifically MS Code 97-13-1; MS Code 97-13-3 (2013) (Federal Code 18 U.S.C. 597, U.S.C. 1973i(c)), each punishable by a prison...

    Things have just turned very sour for the GOPe and Thad Cochran. Angered by the fact that Thad Cochran’s camp stiffed him after he helped them commit a massive voter fraud in the GOP primary, a Black Mississippi minister, the Reverend Stevie Fielder of the First Union Missionary Baptist Church, has come forward to admit his part in the crimes and he is naming names. Fielder says that acting in concert with Saleem Baird of the Cochran camp he agreed to pay $15.00 to Black Democrats who crossed over to vote for Cochran in last month’s runoff against Chris McDaniel....

    Chris McDaniel should mount a write-in campaign to be elected to the Senate from Mississippi, here’ why. The first thing to consider in the aftermath of the underhanded stunt the GOPe pulled to keep their hands on power in Mississippi is that right now the candidacy of Chris McDaniel is dead. It cannot be killed because it is dead. That said, McDaniel has nothing at all to lose and everything to gain by pursuing every legal and political option available to him and even those “not” available to him. After the votes were counted, Thad Cochran had 6693 votes more...

    Via Breitbart, a little casual racial demagoguery towards Chris McDaniel’s tea-party base from ol’ Maverick. “Obviously, I claim credit for [Cochran's victory], but, actually, the reason why he won was that he had a really excellent get-out-the-vote campaign,” McCain told The Arizona Republic. “There are some people who are complaining that African-American voters voted. I thought one of the major priorities of the Republican Party was to get all minority and ethnic voters out to vote for Republicans.”…McCain has not yet announced whether he will seek a sixth Senate term in 2016. But McCain has acknowledged that he would...

    Americans have no more faith in the presidency under President Obama than they did under George W. Bush, a new Gallup Poll finds. After just his first year in office, the number of Americans who said they felt either a "great deal" or "quite a lot" of confidence in the presidency began to drop under Obama, and it hasn't turned around since. Confidence in the presidency did start off at a relatively high 51 percent in Obama's first year. But it didn't take long for confidence to dive. Although there was a similar decline in presidential confidence under both Obama...

    Democrat black reverend, who brought “hundreds” to the polls for promise of payment, exposes alleged massive voter fraud, vote buying operation by Cochran campaign. A black reverend stiffed by the Cochran campaign has exposed an alleged criminal conspiracy by Cochran staffers to commit massive voter fraud ahead of Tuesday’s controversial U.S. Senate Republican runoff election in Mississippi. Reverend Stevie Fielder, associate pastor at historic First Union Missionary Baptist Church and former official at Meridian’s redevelopment agency, says he delivered “hundreds or even thousands,” of blacks to the polls after being offered money and being assured by a Cochran campaign operative...
