FreedomWorks for America Responds to the GOP Mississippi Senate Runoff Results

Originally Published in FreedomWorks For America on 6/24/14.

Following news that 41-year incumbent Thad Cochran defeated small-government challenger Chris McDaniel in an incredibly narrow primary runoff, FreedomWorks for America President Matt Kibbe released the following statement:

"It's disgraceful that self-described GOP leaders like Mitch McConnell, John McCain, the Chamber of Commerce and the NRSC would champion a campaign platform of pork barrel spending and insider deal-making, while recruiting Democrats to show up at the polls. If the only way the K Street wing of the GOP establishment can win is by courting Democrats to vote in GOP primaries, then we've already won. Tonight is proof that the K Street establishment is intellectually bankrupt, and we are going to have to clean it up."

FreedomWorks for America is a grassroots service center to a community of over 6.6 million activists supporting candidates who believe in individual liberty and constitutionally-limited government.

Is the McDaniel campaign challenging these votes. I hope he fights unlike what R's did in 2012 and other elections. There was corruption and I hope they prove it

Can someone list all the GOP Senators that backed Thad Cochran in MS? Bloomberg donated $250K. But I only have part of them Thune, Hatch, McCain, Ayotte, Portman, McConnell, Cornyn, can someone list all of them?

Hinds County, Mississippi voted 3-1 for Obama over Romney in 2012. Cochran won Hinds County by 5,000 votes in the primary but 10,000 votes in the runoff. Cochran's 5,000 vote improvement matched his margin of victory.
