    •  Huge turnout spikes in black-majority counties (9+ / 0-)

      Almost monolithic in favoring Sen. Cochran, too.

        I came in late... Wow! Well, I can't blame them considering the odds would still be against Childers had McDaniels won. The risk of a tree neo - confederate was not worth it. I THEY probably also wanted to stick it to McDaniels. I can also understand why the right is are pissed. We didn't like them messing around with our presidential primary in 2008. Dems really shouldn't be voting in a GOP primary, but they invited that themselves by trying to nominate such a racist ass.
