In a Monday afternoon press conference, Chris McDaniel's U.S. Senate campaign announced that it expects to file a challenge to last month's primary runoff with Sen. Thad Cochran for the Mississippi GOP's Senate nomination and that it will seek a new election.
Mitch Tyner, McDaniel's lead counsel on the election challenge, said the campaign is currently "looking to see how many ineligible voters voted in the runoff," but anticipated they would claim at at least 6,700 such voters. "It is imperative that an ineligible voter be excluded from this, so we want to weed out all the ineligible votes," Tyner said. His proposed remedy? "A new election."
Tyner said that the McDaniel challenge will first be filed with the Mississippi Republican Party and will 10 days later be filed in the state court system.
Or, to make a long story short: Don't put away the popcorn just yet.
