MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- Two contests took new twists this week.

The most obvious is the renewed enthusiasm among supporters of Chris McDaniel for U.S. Senate in Mississippi.

On Tuesday a tea party candidate in Virginia unseated the number two Republican in Congress, bolstering McDaniel voters who think they can unseat incumbent Thad Cochran.

Also this week, Congressman Steve Cohen filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission against his democratic challenger, Ricky Wilkins.


  • Just saying

    HATE CRIME a crime motivated by racial, sexual, or other prejudice, typically one involving violence.

  • Hard Truths

    I believe David Kustoff and the reporter from The Atlantic.

    Sounds like Senator Cochran belongs in that nursing home with his wife; what he did with the reporter was a clear-cut sign of Alzheimer’s.

    Of course other states want Mississippi to lose their 3rd highest ranking senator. Other states would benefit from Cochran losing. I hope Mississippi is wise enough not to let that happen!

  • Hard Truths

    Speaking as a Democrat and a progressive, I do think the esteemed Senator Cochran is senile. The episode with the reporter that Mr Kustoff recounts is clear evidence of Alzheimer’s.

    It’s moot. The neo-K lansman is going to win in a landslide.
