The McDaniel campaign keeps kicking! First, campaign staffers returned to the Hinds County Courthouse to search for voting “irregularities”—i.e. Democrats who backed Cochran in the runoff. Loyal readers might remember as the site of the courthouse caper, which resulted in one campaign staffer and two other McDaniel supporters getting locked in the courthouse at 2 a.m. alongside ballots on June 3.
Then, the McDaniel campaign called on the state GOP chair to order elections clerks to open their books so that the staff can comb over them for voting “irregularities.” But does the GOP chair have such authority? Nope!
