    runoff votes.  I thought I had read that in Mississippi the law was that in order to vote in the run-off, you had to have not voted in the Democratic primary AND you intended to support the winner of the runoff.  By that standard, the tea party votes were invalid.  Ordinarily, it would be hard to determine intent.  But these public statements are self-incriminating and their votes should be removed from any final tally if votes are re-counted.

      They "intended" to go for the republican winner. So long as it was their guy, you know, the guy who actually won the only votes that "really" count (republican votes).

      But now that this is not to be, they reevaluated. Perfectly acceptable; they voted with true intent on the day of the election, and have since reassessed the situation. I'm all for letting them change their mind.
