Watson said that the campaign's lawyers are still reviewing poll books and will not file a formal challenge unless they have enough evidence.

After Watson spoke, Mitch Tyner, one of McDaniel's lawyers, said that they expect to file a formal challenge within the next 10 days.

He said that 60 clerks had cooperated and let them review election books, and that they have produced "tens of thousands of pages" during their review.

The campaign has yet to file substantial legal action. McDaniel's lawyers have filed lawsuits to demand access to poll records.

Tyner addressed issues of race in the primary election — the McDaniel campaign has said that Cochran won the runoff with votes from African-Americans and Democrats.

McDaniel did not appear at the press conference.
