Incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran faces a runoff with challenger state Sen. Chris McDaniel, after neither garnered more than 50 percent of the vote on June 3. McDaniel led by less than 1,500 of the 319,000 votes cast.

The past couple of days, Cochran’s campaign has gotten belligerent .
All State wide Republicans in Mississippi have endorsed Thad Cochran in his run for re-election. At the time of this publication, said Republicans leaders haven’t distanced themselves from this illegal desperate act.
Here is a video audio of the robocall to many democrats across the state and remember, this is a struggling Republican candidate trying to garner votes against a Conservative Tea-Party backed Chris McDaniel.
