The Chris McDaniel campaign identified multiple Mississippi counties in which enough improper ballots were cast that a legal challenge to the outcome of the election is warranted.
This comes after Thad Cochran reportedly relied on 25,000-35,000 Democrat votes to pull him to victory in the June 24 runoff.
“Tuesday evening the Republican primary in Mississippi was not decided by Republican voters. It was decided by 35,000 to 40,000 Democrats. That’s unprecedented and extraordinarily unusual… We’re looking into whether Democrats who voted in the June 3rd primary crossed over into the Republican primary this Tuesday night. We’ve already found 1,000 examples of that in one county alone.“
Tonight Chris McDaniel told Sean Hannity that his campaign has found evidence that nearly 1,000 voters crossed over in Tuesday’s runoff election that should not have been allowed to vote Republican.
The Mississippi Tea Party President said earlier at least 800 Hinds County Voters crossed over illegally.
MS News Now reported:
The Mississippi Tea Party President says they’ve found evidence that nearly 800 voters crossed over in Tuesday’s runoff election that should not have been allowed to vote Republican.
However, Hinds County GOP Chairman Pete Perry says there are some precincts where he knows workers marked the wrong column and that could account for at least 200 of those being cited by the Tea Party.
Members of McDaniel’s campaign staff and some supporters began sorting through voter books on Thursday morning at the Hinds County courthouse.
They were looking for any “irregularities”.
In Hinds County, poll workers used the Democratic primary books for the GOP runoff in an attempt to prevent crossover voters.
However, the group from McDaniel’s camp is still searching those records to try to find anyone who voted as a Democrat on June 3rd and with the GOP on the 24th (the runoff.)
