(Reuters) – Chris McDaniel, the Tea Party-backed U.S. Senate candidate who lost the Mississippi Republican primary runoff, filed a legal challenge to the result on Monday, alleging that he fell short in the June 24 vote because of election fraud. McDaniel submitted a 28-page legal challenge and supporting documentation with the state’s Republican Party, outlining what he claims are thousands of instances of voter fraud. Joe Nosef, the state Republican Party chairman, said shortly after the filing that he had not yet reviewed the challenge and could not comment on what the committee intends to do.  If the committee fails to act, McDaniel would seek a judicial review in one of the state’s chancery courts, said his attorney, Mitch Tyner. McDaniel lost the runoff to incumbent U.S. Senator Thad Cochran by more than 7,667 votes.
