Mitch Tyner, lead counsel for the Chris McDaniel campaign
By Gary P Jackson
In a press conference on Monday, Mitch Tyner, lead counsel for the McDaniel campaign, announced their intentions to challenge the outcome of the June 24 run-off election against 6 term incumbent Senator Thad Cochran, who McDaniel defeated on June 3, but did not meet the required 50% +1 thresh-hold, setting the stage for the run-off, and all of the race baiting, illegal vote buying, and more by the Cochran campaign.

Tyner is confident they will find enough votes to surpass the amount Cochran won the election by. We’re hearing they have already identified over 5000, with more counties to canvas, and all of the absentee votes to check. An election adviser in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, told UK’s MailOnline, [the law] wouldn’t require McDaniel to find 6,700 fraudulent votes cast for his opponent. Any 6,700 ineligible votes would suffice.
“Most of them,” he said, “are going to be absentee ballots. It’s too easy to scam, and nobody ever checks unless the margin is this close or the result this unexpected.“
As we reported last week, democrat officials in Hinds County alleged that County Republican Party chairman, and Cochran sycophant Pete Perry not only sought to stop the traditional swapping of voter rolls, to facilitate voter fraud, by making it impossible to check for illegal double voting, but also tampered with absentee ballots. Claude McInnis,the Hinds County Democrats’ top official, alleged Perry approached him and outright asked the democrat party to help facilitate voter fraud by withholding those voter books for inspection during the run-off election.
Tyner and others also note that, under Mississippi law, it’s not necessary to find enough irregularities to overturn the election results, but simply find enough to call the integrity of the election into account. If the 5000 plus number holds true, one would think that thresh-hold has been more than met.
Tyner says the remedy the McDaniel campaign seeks is a brand new election.
It’s interesting that while most county clerks were open and honest, others have resisted the McDaniel campaign’s attempt to check ballots.
Tyner cited a Mississippi Supreme Court ruling: Sartin v. Barlow  which says: “It’s not only a candidate’s right to get into that ballot box, but it’s a candidate’s responsibility.“. Tyner passed out copies of the ruling to local media. We’ve searched online and haven’t found it to share with readers.
We’re no legal scholars here, but it seems Mississippi law, while sometimes vague, is at the same time pretty clear.
We don’t expect the Republican Party to overturn the election, or call for a new one, on it’s own. We fully expect for this to end up in the courts.
For his part, Cochran has taken to social media, and denies any wrong doing whatsoever, despite mounting evidence.
If Thad Cochran were a good and decent man, he would, if a successful challenge to the election is met, concede defeat to McDaniel, and spare the good people of Mississippi, and America a THIRD election. With all of the bad blood among Mississippians, I don’t see how Cochran has a pathway to victory in November. Before all of the shenanigans from the Cochran campaign, polling showed McDaniel would have defeated the democrat party nominee rather handily. It’s unclear how all of this has effected that predicted outcome.
