Dudes and dudettes…after last nights results in Mississippi were finalized, it left me filled with nothing but disgust, disappointment and pure anger. And I’m still hotter than a pepper sprout today too, it will take a long time for me to get over my anger about what’s taken place. Nevertheless, thought I’d try to try get a few sentences together to share with all of you regarding this important matter.
The republican establishment, the US Chamber of Commerce, the unions (paid black voters), the race card and the votes from liberal democrats, resulted in nothing put pure corruption and filthy tactics…Haley Barbour leading the way from the get-go to defeat Chris McDaniel and ensure Thad Cochran’s win.
We also can’t forget the robocall tactics either disparaging McDaniel and the Tea Party. This particular robocall also used the race card for Dear Leader, as well as stating the Tea Party was racist. – You can read about it here and listen below:
Here’s one of many reports about last nights results:
76-year-old GOP establishment-backed Senator Thad Cochran managed to hold onto the seat he’s held for 36 years, holding off Tea Party-backed challenger Chris McDaniel by less than 2%.
Latest numbers from Mississippi show Cochran, who was first elected to Congress in 1972, leading 50.8% to 49.2%, receiving roughly 6,000 more votes than McDaniel in Tuesday’s runoff election. Three weeks ago, McDaniel narrowly defeated Cochran, forcing the runoff, but failed to receive the necessary 50% of the vote to avoid a runoff.
Cochran, often referred to as the “King of Pork,” mounted a last-minute campaign to court Democrat voters which appears to have pushed him over the top as recent polls showed McDaniel ahead by 8%-12%.
As TPNN reported, Democrat voters were flooded with robocalls, smearing McDaniel and the pro-freedom, pro-Constitution Tea Party movement as racist, encouraging them to vote for Cochran.
The robocall asks voters to say ‘no’ to the Tea Party, ‘no’ to their obstruction, ‘no’ to their disrespectful treatment of the first African-American president.”
The call also urges,” If we do nothing, Tea Party candidate Chris McDaniel wins and causes even more problems for President Obama.”
However, under Mississippi law, voters in one party’s primary must intend to support that party’s nominee in the general election.
Last night, McDaniel told his packed crowd of supporters, “We are not prone to surrender, we Mississippians,” insinuating the fight for Cochran’s entrenched seat may be legally challenged. “Before this race is over, we have to be absolutely certain the Republican primary was won by Republican voters,” he said, referring to Cochran’s dirty tricks.
One county, Hinds County, drew specific suspicion from the McDaniel campaign. In the June 3 primary, Cochran won the county by 5,300 votes, however, he won there by almost 11,000 votes in the runoff election on Tuesday.
“So much for bold colors. So much for principle,” McDaniel said last night.
He continued to shame the GOP establishment for supporting Cochran’s desperate use of dirty tricks to stay in power, saying “This is not the party of Reagan,” but told the audience that it would be by the time he’s done:
“I guess they can take some consolation in the fact that they did something tonight by once again compromising, by once again reaching across the aisle, by once again abandoning the conservative movement. I would like to know which part of that strategy today our Republican friends endorse. I would like to know which part of that strategy today our statewide officials endorse. This is not the party of Reagan, but we’re not done fighting and when we’re done it will be.”
Now, read this suggestion about the possibilty of a write-in vote come Nov:
Tea party leader: Chris McDaniel should run as write-in candidate in November election
So, what say you? – What do you suggest Chris McDaniel do…concede, challenge or go the write-in route?
