The Fox and the Rabbit in Mississippi

The Fox and the Rabbit in Mississippi

As CHQ Chairman Richard Viguerie has often said, every day there are millions of races between foxes and rabbits – sometimes a fox will win, otherwise there would be no foxes, but most of the time the rabbit wins because while the fox is running for his lunch the rabbit is running for his life.  

In yesterday’s Mississippi Senate runoff the rabbits of the Republican establishment and the Haley Barbour political machine were running for their lives and, in a remarkable turnaround from the primary, where he came in second, Mississippi’s 36-year establishment incumbent Senator Thad Cochran won the runoff against Tea Party backed state Senator Chris McDaniel by some 6,400 votes.

Or did he?

Our friend Matthew Boyle of Breitbart reports that, “There were 24,889 votes cast in Hinds County in the runoff–17,927 were for Cochran and 6,962 were for McDaniel–but only 20,567 Republican voters are listed in Hinds County, according to the well-known Labels and Lists Voter Data Base. The extraordinarily high turnout in Hinds County is much more than what happened in Hinds County in the primary just a few weeks ago, when 16,640 total votes were cast–10,928 for Cochran and 5,621 for McDaniel.”
