They’re still counting the votes Mississippi’s $12 million Republican Senate primary, but it looks like there’s going to be a runoff election between Cochran and McDaniel. Here’s what’s at stake:
“They really want a McDaniel win because they want a head on the mantel,” party strategist Ford O’Connell said. Tea party groups “need to be able to raise money” to stay afloat, he added, “and to raise money, you have to show results.”
Here’s hoping for a McDaniel win to keep those grifters in the green.
