Hillary Clinton On Mississippi Senate Race: Lesson Is Expand Your Base


Hillary Clinton’s read on the Mississippi Senate race is this: “expand your base.”

The former secretary of State on Monday reportedly weighed in on the outcome of the bloody Republican primary for U.S. Senate in Mississippi where incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) defeated state Sen. Chris McDaniel (R) in a runoff election. Cochran, after the primary went to a runoff, sought out the support of Democratic and black voters.

McDaniel has yet to concede the race and has claimed that Cochran won due to “illegal” votes.
