The Hinds County GOP Chairman speaks out about the Tea Party checking the votes cast in the Primary Runoff between Thad Cochran and Chris McDaniel.

In a press conference Friday, Hinds County GOP Chairman Pete Perry calls the Mississippi Tea Party's allegations of nearly 700 illegally votes cast in the Republican Primary runoff false.

McDaniel staffers and supporters went to the Hinds County Courthouse comparing the June 3 Democratic poll books to the Republican runoff poll books.

The McDaniel camp claims there are several irregularities from the June 24 election.

Perry, says the allegation of 700 illegal votes is false. 

"I don't call it illegal voting, he said. "Have I seen evidence of possible mistakes? We haven't gotten there yet, I'm sure there were mistakes, I don't deny that there might be, but I don't say that's illegal voting."

In the press conference Perry went over the rules and procedures for election day laws. 

News Channel 12 has reached out to Cochran's camp for a statement about McDaniel's review of the books, we were told no comment.
