Chris McDaniel Will Challenge Election Results
Breitbart News Reports:
State Sen. Chris McDaniel will challenge the results of the Tuesday runoff election where 41-year incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran won by about 6,400 votes, he announced to a room of supporters here at his victory party at the Hattiesburg Convention Center late Tuesday evening.
"I want to be very, very clear: There is nothing dangerous or extreme about wanting to balance a budget," McDaniel said in a fiery speech to supporters. There is nothing dangerous or extreme about defending the Constitution or the civil liberties therein. There is nothing strange at all about standing as people of faith for a country that we built, that we believe in. But there is something a bit strange, there is something a bit unusual, about a Republican primary that's decided by liberal Democrats."
McDaniel said that Cochran's actions mean the "conservative movement took a backseat to liberal Democrats" in Mississippi on Tuesday, something he argued can't be allowed to stand as precedent. "In the most conservative state in the republic this happened and if it can happen here, it can happen anywhere-and that's why we will never stop fighting," McDaniel said.
After noting how Cochran and his allies spent "millions of dollars to character assassinate one of their own, or so it seemed," McDaniel said "I'm still standing," adding "we were right tonight."
