Mississippi's state Republican Party is refusing to hear challenger Chris McDaniel's effort to overturn his June 24 GOP runoff loss to U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran. The party says McDaniel would do better taking his challenge to court.
In a Wednesday letter to McDaniel's lawyer, state Republican Party Chairman Joe Nosef said a court is needed to ensure a "prudent" review of the challenge.
Mississippi US Senate Candidate Chris McDaniel - "I beat Thad Cochran by 25,000 votes" launches formal legal challengeSubmitted by joeinmo on Mon, 08/04/2014 - 22:10
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.
In an interview with Dr. Ron Paul, Mississippi Sen. Chris McDaniel discusses the controversy over the June 24 runoff election and checking voter irregularities.
The Chris McDaniel campaign’s effort to pore through ballot books in Mississippi’s 84 counties in an effort to find some 6,900 voters who cast ballots illegally in the June 24 GOP primary runoff – an illegal vote would be from someone who had voted in the Democrat primary on the June 3 election date and then crossed over to vote in the Republican runoff on the 24th – has apparently been successful. At least, that’s what a tweet from GotNews.com’s Charles Johnson says…

During the run-up to the June 24 run-off election in Mississippi, between Thad Cochran and Chris McDaniel, Cole commented on what the Cochran campaign was labeling a “get out the vote” outreach. Cole’s perspective is radically different. According to The Clarion-Ledger, Cole used his Facebook page to send this message to a reporter from the Wall Street Journal: “Large sums of cash are being passed around. These guys are old-school ‘walking around money’ vote buyers.” (Emphasis mine.)

McDaniel knew exactly what to expect. The Cochran campaign told him. Yet he remained a spectator through it all. His counter strategy was no counter strategy and just continue what he was already doing. Appealing just to Mississippi’s conservative white electorate.
Sitting in the White House today is the most left-wing president in the nation’s history, elected twice without winning the white vote. I have written about the demographic changes taking place in the country and the need for Republicans to talk about limited government and traditional values to non-white Americans.
Thad Cochran Awaits Election Results After Close Run-Off ElectionAn audio interview has surfaced in which the interviewee claims that he was to be paid by the Cochran camp to grease voters in the Mississippi GOP Senate runoff election.

Breaking – The Chris McDaniel campaign identified multiple Mississippi counties in which enough improper ballots were cast that a legal challenge to the outcome of the election is warranted.
This comes after 25,000-35,000 Democrat votes helped push Thad Cochran to victory over Chris McDaniel (by 6,880 votes) in the June 24 runoff.

According to the Democrat Chairman of Mississippi, he has email evidence of the Cochran campaign asking him to break the law. In addition, evidence is mounting that thousands voted illegally in the GOP primary.
Breaking - Hundreds of Democrat voters in Hinds County that already voted in the Democrat Primary have been found to have also voted in the GOP Runoff primary -this is against state law and illegal and it already appears to be enough illegal votes to invalidate that county's election because its tainted with too many illegal votes.
