Still refusing to concede his runoff primary defeat to Sen. Thad Cochran, Mississippi state senator Chris McDaniel took his case today to “Focal Point” with Bryan Fischer, the American Family Association spokesman who campaigned with and endorsed him.
McDaniel has challenged the results of the runoff and demanded the state GOP declare him to be the nominee.
While speaking with Fischer, McDaniel cited a completely unenforceable state law stipulating that “[n]o person shall be eligible to participate in any primary election unless he intends to support the nominations made in which he participates.”
McDaniel said his campaign commissioned a poll of Mississippi Democrats and found that around 71 percent of those who voted in the GOP primary for Cochran did not intend to vote for him in the general election. Therefore, McDaniel says, people’s actual votes should be “invalidated” due to what his campaign’s poll says about their imaginary, future votes.
