McDaniel has apparently refused to concede.
“There’s something strange about a Republican primary that’s decided by liberal Democrats,” McDaniel said…(C’mon, pay attention! It’s not strange at all, it’s been their M.O. V)
“It’s our job to make sure the sanctity of the vote is upheld.” (And theirs to make sure it isn’t V)
The possible next steps for the McDaniel campaign are unclear, but spokesman for McDaniel said to “stay tuned.”
McDaniel said in his speech there were “dozens of irregularities” reported at polls.
Interesting. I figure he’s going to try to figure out which Democrats voted in the Democratic Primary and then voted in the GOP runoff Primary.
At least, I hope that’s what he does.
Mississippi has an idiotic law that states,
No registration by party affiliation. However, in order to participate in the primary, a voter must support the nominations made in that primary.
How do you enforce that?
How can that be Constitutional?
You cannot force someone to vote for a certain party in the general election.
If McDaniel goes that route, I think he’ll be acting like an asshole. Yeah it’s the law, but don’t be an Al Gore.
If he goes the “These Democrats already voted in the Dem primary so they can’t vote in the GOP Primary” route, he’ll be acting much better.
Of course, Minitrue and Foxnews will attack him either way.
I look forward to Campaign Carl Cameron salivating as figures out how many ways to fit “Far Right” and “Hard Right” when talking about the Tea Party.
UPDATE 6/25, Campaign Carl was magnanimous in victory, he only got in one “rabble rouser” for McDaniel and I don’t think managed to say his name.
If McDaniel does fight this, expect him to get worse.
