On CNN, McDaniel vows to 'stand and fight'

(CNN) - The tea party-backed challenger who narrowly lost a Republican primary runoff in Mississippi to longtime Sen. Thad Cochran says he plans to file a legal challenge contesting those results "any day now."

State Sen. Chris McDaniel said Friday on CNN's "New Day" that "the integrity of the process matters. We believe on that night of June 24 there were thousands of irregularities and we've already found thousands of irregularities in the process."

    The McDaniel camp's claim of voting fraud is yet another example of tea-chuggers reaching a conclusion that is desperately in need of an evidence-based rationalization.

    If there are provable cases of people voting illegally (Democrats that already voted in the Democrat primary) then he has every right to challenge the results. Of course, none of this would be happening if the Democrats didn't play their dirty election games as mess with elections. It is just too much to expect them to act honestly.

    Good for him! It's about time the illegal votes from the left are exposed – they also helped get Obama elected – and it will keep happening until someone exposes it.

    @freedom: "Good for him! It's about time the illegal votes from the left are exposed – they also helped get Obama elected – and it will keep happening until someone exposes it."

    They weren't illegal votes – and when are you going to accept the reality that President Obama was elected TWICE by a majority of Americans?

    Pathetic how you claim "freedom" but are imprisoned by the RWNJ lies.

    So you're saying that it should be illegal to switch parties? Sounds like you don't like representative democracy, Bub.
