The Republican Party primary election for the next US Senator from Mississippi (a contest between the incumbent Thad Cochran and his challenger Chris McDaniel) took a very strange turn this year.

From Wonkette:

Team McDaniel is pretty darn sure Cochran only won because he received more votes, which is usually how elections are decided unless those votes come from black people, in which case, it’s VERY suspicious and suggests that Democrats voter-frauded the election by voting.

And now, after all this time, Team McDaniel claims it has “evidence” to justify being a sore loser whiny crybaby, and it will see you in Elections Are For White People Court:

Enjoy Lauren's take on the primary contest(s).
