Chris McDaniel, who lost Mississippi's Republican U.S. Senate primary last week, on Wednesday blamed his defeat on illegal voting by Democrats and asked supporters for money to mount a legal challenge to the runoff election results. McDaniel, a state senator backed by the Tea Party, said in an email to supporters that his loss to U.S. Senator Thad Cochran last week was caused by a large number of ineligible Democrats who voted for the six-term incumbent Cochran.
