Yesterday, Mitch Tyner — the attorney for the Chris McDaniel for U.S. Senate campaign — briefly updated reporters on the status of their challenge in the Mississippi GOP runoff election. Tyner responded to a question about the 6,700 vote margin between McDaniel and incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran and was confident of...

Who would have thought that the Mississippi GOP Senate Primary race would be more exciting and last longer than the World Cup soccer tournament? Well, it’s happening.

You may recall that allegations surfaced that incumbent U.S. Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS) supporters engaged in flagrant race-baiting tactics against Cochran’s June 24 runoff opponent...

The Daily Mail has obtained three racially-charged radio ads placed by organizations that worked to help incumbent U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) stage his come from behind run-off victory this week.

[The ads] claimed that supporters of conservative McDaniel had connections to the Ku Klux Klan and that McDaniel had a ‘racist...

The Clarion-Ledger reports:

Sources have confirmed that attorney Mark Mayfield has committed suicide.

Mayfield, vice chairman of the Mississippi Tea Party, and is one of the three men charged with conspiring with Clayton Kelly to photograph U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran’s bedridden wife in her nursing home and create a political video against Cochran.

The title sounds absurd, doesn’t it?

Absurd as in your Republican Party circa 2014, where winning at any cost is the operative strategy.

Not winning against Democrats at any cost — no that would be mean.

Winning at any cost in the Republican Party means winning against Tea Party and conservative challengers in...

Tomorrow Mississippi decides which Republican will face off against Democratic Challenger, Travis Childers, in the bid for a coveted U.S. Senate seat. Easily one of the most bizarre primary elections I’ve witnessed, the final campaign pushes have produced more oddities. Yes, more.

Maybe this would have worked had it been done early and often.

Chris McDaniel was a radio talk show host. As such, he said some things. When you hear them, it really isn’t that over the top for a radio talk show host.

Even Josh Marshall at TPM notes:

The Mississippi Republican Senate primary is just one bizarre event after another.

The nursing home photo shoot, the late night courthouse lock-in, and now two really, really bizarre statements by Thad Cochran.

First, he joked (or was it a joke?) about doing indecent acts to animals as a kid.  Mark Levin questioned whether...

In the ever bizarre Mississippi Republican Senate Primary, three people were locked into the Courthouse where the primary ballots had been counted after hours. The three claimed they had entered through an open side door. The ballots themselves were locked in an inaccessible vault, and never in danger.

The incident dominated the...

If it turns out that the campaign of Chris McDaniel was involved in the taping of Thad Cochran’s wife in a nursing home, then it really doesn’t matter who knew what when. The damage would be, and should be, a game changer.

I haven’t focused much on the Mississippi Republican Senate primary, in which Chris McDaniel is challenging Thad Cohran, except to have previously noted that NRSC race card play against challenger hurts us all.

But the latest intrigue makes what came before look like child’s play.  Ed Morrissey and Allahpundit at Hot Air have...

I don’t know much about Chris McDaniel, who is challenging Thad Cochran in the Mississippi Republican Senate primary. I also don’t know much about Thad Cochran.

I haven’t studied the race, or taken a position. I don’t back a challenger just for the sake of backing a challenger.
