The owner of a Mississippi comic book store was pretty ticked off that Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel’s (R) campaign bus took up five parking spaces in his lot Wednesday morning.
Barry Herring, owner of Southern Fried Comics in Hattiesburg, Miss., told the Clarion-Ledger that he arrived to his store to see the bus there for no apparent reason. He tweeted out a picture:

“We have issues sometimes with people not understanding the parking,” Herring told the Clarion-Ledger. “It’s an open space, but it’s five spaces we can’t use. It’s frustrating. It really is.”
Herring was particularly frustrated because the bus arrived on one of the busiest days of the year for his store, “Batman Day.” On Wednesday the store celebrated the 75th anniversary of the superhero with an event for kids.
McDaniel is currently on a “Truth and Justice Tour” throughout Mississippi. His campaign has been looking for voting irregularities in the primary runoff election for the Mississippi U.S. Senate seat. McDaniel claims that Sen. Thad Cochran (R) only won due to crossover votes form African-Americans and Democrats, but McDaniel has yet to formally challenge the election results.
