McDaniel Questions Results of Runoff Race

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, Miss. - Longtime U.S. Senator Thad Cochran has defeated State Senator Chris McDaniel in the June 24, 2014 runoff election.

McDaniel is now questioning some of the election results from the runoff race.

"Dozes of irregularities were reported all over the state," he said in his speech on Tuesday night, referring to Democrats who voted in the Republican primary.

McDaniel said it's important to make sure the that Republican primary was decided by Republicans.

According to the Secretary of State's office, if you were eligible to vote in the Primary Election, you are eligible to vote in the Primary Election Runoff. However, if you voted in the Republican Primary Election, you must vote in the Republican Primary Election Runoff. If you voted in the Democratic Primary Election, you must vote in the Democratic Primary Runoff. However, if you did not vote in the Primary Election, but were eligible, you may vote in either party primary.

"We fought, we had a dream, and the dream is still with us," McDaniel said.
