The 2014 U.S. Senate GOP primary in Mississippi will go down as one of the most bitter, mudslinging-est, bizarre political hootenannies in state history. Incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran faces a runoff with challenger state Sen. Chris McDaniel, after neither garnered more than 50% of the vote June 3. McDaniel led by less than 1,500 of the 319,000 votes cast and has tea party support and a base fired up by anti-Washington sentiment.
