McDaniel filing challenge with state Republican party
JACKSON, Miss. — Chris McDaniel will announce today he is filing a challenge with the Mississippi Republican Party Executive Committee.
“They asked us to put up or shut up. Here we are. Here we are with the evidence,” McDaniel said at an afternoon news conference.
McDaniel is challenging the run-off election results from June 24.
Certified results show incumbent U.S. Senator Thad Cochran with a 7,667 vote margin of victory largely attributed to Democrat voters.
