Mississippi Senate election challenge appealed to state's top court

A combination photo shows Republican U.S. Senator Thad Cochran and Tea Party candidate Chris McDanielSenate candidate in Mississippi on Friday appealed a judge’s decision to dismiss an election challenge over his Republican primary loss in June. The appeal, filed in the Mississippi Supreme Court, keeps alive a bitter dispute over a race once seen as a key test of Tea Party clout. Chris McDaniel, a state senator, lost the Republican nomination in a June 24 runoff by roughly 7,700 votes to Thad Cochran, a six-term incumbent. McDaniel refused to concede, saying that thousands of ballots had been improperly cast by Democrats – most of them African-American – or mishandled by county election officials.
