This Could Get Weird

Remember, the McDaniel camp and the Tea Party have spent the last week claiming that African-American Democrats were going to essentially steal the race for Cochran or that Cochran was going to steal the race with African-American votes. Mix that in with the prospective vote fraud. I'd expect a three alarm Birth of a Nation style freakout.

On the other hand, now we're at 46% and the margin has narrowed and some key counties have come in for McDaniel.
