The problem is the primary system there. I wish they would nullify it as what that POS Cochran did was despicable.
I am hoping he runs as a write in candidate because according to what I read, he lost by around 5k votes with 35,000 Democrats voting in it. I would rather him run and have the Democrat win than have Cochran serve another day in office.
My question though is this.. if some of those Democrats (more than 5k) voted in the Democrat primary already, then their votes should not count as that is illegal.
This is interesting.. (from your link)
No state Republican Party rule or state
law shall be observed that allows persons who have
participated or are participating in the selection of any
nominee of a party other than the Republican Party,
including, but not limited to, through the use of a
multi-party primary or similar type ballot, to
participate in the selection of a nominee of the
Republican Party for that general election. No person
nominated in violation of this rule shall be recognized
by the Republican National Committee as the nominee
of the Republican Party from that state.
From that reading.. it does sound like he 'may' have a case
