    I think McDaniel would have won handily (barring some really, really in(s)ane revelations), this way there might be a real civil war in tge GOP, and Childers might make an ebd run and win. But even with a McDaniel write-in campaign, it's still a very long shot.

      and any "independent" run is past its signup date.

      It's vote for Childers or don't vote in the Senate race in MS with the Tea Party to teach the GOP establishment (mainly Cochran, Barbour and McConnell) that they will no longer be their pawns and they're livid that these "establishment elite" called them racists.

        I knew about the sign up date, but not the write-ins don't count (unless someone on the ballot dies). I'm still not sure TPers would let that fact get in their way though. They might still write-in McDaniel, and his campaign says they haven't ruled out a write-in campaign.

          one less vote for Cochran. I spent some time reading rightwing blogs last week and was amazed with their hatred for their establishment leaders and their determination to get rid of them all.
