Update #3 – Primary Tuesday – Cochran VS McDaniel Runoff Election TODAY ! *UPDATE* Race Tightens But Still Appears Dem Turnout Will Retain Cochran…

thad cochran - chris mcdaniel

Bumped and sticky as the election results come in.

However, some alarming news first – This is pathetic. CNN is reporting that establishment Republicans have been pushing Democrats to vote for Cochran today in order to defeat the Tea Party….

…. And sure enough, CNN’s Dana Bash interviewed several Democrats who have voted today for Thad Cochran:

VERY TROUBLING EARLY REPORTS OF MASSIVE INFLUENCE BY DEMOCRAT OPERATIVES in GOP Primary. 

Update #3 With 90% of votes in the Dem participation looks to be an issue:

miss results 3

miss results 2

With 20% of precincts reporting It looks like the Establishment GOP has been successful in using Democrats to retain their grasp on power.   Some minority area polling locations reflecting large turnout with 90% support for McConnell’s chosen Decepticon Thad Cochran.

We await the first results.

Initial Results with less than 5% reportingNot starting out GOOD

miss results 1

 

(MISSISSIPPI Via Politico) A specter is haunting Tuesday’s Senate primary in Mississippi and many other midterm races around the country: BRAC.

The intraparty showdown between the Magnolia State’s long-serving Republican Sen. Thad Cochran and his tea party challenger, Chris McDaniel, not only pits the old guard against the new and the Republican establishment against the tea party. It has also become the latest test zone for the politics of the base realignment and closure process.

Cochran is betting BRAC can help turn his stature in the Senate as a longtime appropriator into an advantage.  (read more)

        Well, if it had been a “closed” primary we win. The establishment could not get the democrats to help them. Also it is going to make a lot of con-cons really mad. Blame Mitch!!! That is the only good thing I can see here. Beat Mitch in Kentucky.

    Can someone tell me why I should ever vote Republican again? As long as we keep voting for them they’re never going to change. Conservatives have no choice the way I look at it but to cut ties with the GOP.

      It is really confusing. Maybe vote for democrats? Why not? At least you could get some of the Loot before it runs out. Sit it out? Vote for some tiny party? Political vacation? Maybe if choice is RINO or democrat abstain? Ahhh Dunno.

        As Sharon points out all the time, we have no rule of law, the Constitution is now nothing more than a historical document.
        People claim it’s because Republicans only control one branch, but they control the branch that controls the purse strings and could bring it all to a screeching halt, they choose not to.

      That’s what I’m feeling tonight too. After this underhanded deal I refuse to vote for a rhino. I still believe we need a third party. The rhinos will never let a tea party candidate win. There needs to be a recount and all democratic votes checked to see if they voted earlier. This is so disgusting on so many levels.

        It isn’t just tonight, tonight is just another big neon flashing sign that is inviting the GOP, Chamber and Democrats under the tent, while conservatives are standing out in the rain.

        The future looks like the Republicans could take back over the Senate, but it will be filled with liberals, I’m not going to call them RINOS anymore, because we are the RINOS now. The Republican party is not the conservative party. Then they will do nothing, the country’s debt will continue to grow, more Americans will lose their job, more Americans and the new legalized criminal aliens will be on welfare and come 2016 we’ll get another Democrat President and Democrat congress, when they blame the faux conservative Republicans.

        I’m beginning to think we’d be better off to quit electing liberals with a little L and just elect the true thing and speed up the total collapse.

    McDaniel not conceding?

    Instead of conceding, McDaniel implied that this wasn’t the end of his run. “We are not prone to surrender, we Mississippians,” he said, mention reports of “irregularities” at the polls. “Before this race is over we have to make absolutely certain the republican primary was won by republican voters … There were literally dozens of irregularities reported all across this state.” He didn’t mention Cochran.

        This is Mississippi, right next to Louisiana, right below Arkansas. The crooked political gravity is so strong due to the closeness of these states that the unusual would be not to have an issue with absentee ballots. In Louisiana the absentee ballots and those who are allowed to vote early (and often) is an every-election-day issue. Let’s see if McDaniels gets, or even decides to cancel, his recount. I see the elections as less of a joust by Galahad against the Chevalier Noir and more one of two tom cats fighting over who gets to eat the dying mouse.
        The Tea Party’s spending as many millions as the special interests on the other side of the aisle are -and no one gives that kind of cash for nothing, it ain’t human…correct that to ‘political’…nature. OI stopped believing in Santa, the Easter Bunny, vegan sharks and honest politicians a long time ago.

            I agree that there may be an honest, non-corrupt to some degree, selfless pol out there who has some $20-million in spare cash whose soul doesn’t belong to those who’d finance him/her. Problem is that person hasn’t appeared yet. Think about the incredible access to cash and power even a Representative has, never mind a Senator or a President. Until the Second Coming I’ll keep a jaundiced eye on anyone who has my and my family’s lives in his/her back pocket.

            I’m just betting that we’ll be hearing about absentee ballot fraud from the aggrieved. To those of us in the Gulf Coast Greater Banana Republic the losing side of each election talking about absentee ballot fraud’s second only to people talking about the humidity. Back to my original point – who spends $10-to $20 MILLION to win a job that pays less than $200,000 a year? Doesn’t matter who wins, we dance to someone else’s tune.
            Remember, those of us in the South,never mind the rural South, are the ones the Hollyork portray as racist, ignorant, political uncultured and largely Republican.

                Friend I have from the city bought a huge blueberry farm up here some years ago, people from the city just think these nice rows of neatly planted bushes are public property. If they’d just ask he’s let ’em pick a few buckets – out of 180 acres of berries what a bush or two? Nope – gotta justify flat out stealin’. There I go, minds free associating again – time for a drink.

    One would think that McDaniel’s refusal to concede the loss would be the leading headline in this story, but all MSM reports simply tout Cochran as winning a close but decisive battle over Tea Party conservatives. To hear them tell it, the TP movement is dead. Little do they know….
