Chris McDaniel is heading to court in contested election

WASHINGTON (AP) - The Republican who lost a primary runoff election to Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran says he plans to challenge the results in court "any day now."

Chris McDaniel says he believes there were thousands of irregularities.

In an interview with CNN Friday, McDaniel said what matters is that fraud be uncovered where it exists and many Mississippi residents are "very angry" because they think their votes in the June 24 primary were nullified by fraud.

McDaniel says his campaign found at least 5,000 irregularities in voting.

He says most involved people who apparently voted in the June 3 Democratic primary and the Republican runoff.

Mississippi does not register voters by party, but state law bans a person from voting in one party's primary and another party's runoff in the same cycle.

Investigate and find him wrong or perhaps right. Stop the name calling and stick with the principle of law and order and get to the bottom of it right or wrong. This isn't about tea or bags, it's about principles, you know those things that made this country strong. Those things that seem to interfere with what folks want to do these days!

Fraud comes as no surprise to me, especially when it stems from those on the left. I have personally seen fraud with my own eyes at a polling station, however I was not able to confirm it until later. This black woman in front of me in line to vote was yelling that she wanted her vote to count, and that she was being held back from voting. Apparently she didn't have adequate paperwork to substantiate herself. I looked down at her paperwork, and her listed address was the exact same apartment building I was living in, right above me on the next floor. However, I hadn't seen (nor heard, she used to yell like crazy all day long) from her in over 6 months prior to the voting day, and I never saw her again on the premises. Obviously she was living someplace else, and she was going to different polling places to vote over and over again. Very sad. We need strict identification standards so these scumbag Obama supporters can't double up their votes.

He got 5% of the vote. He lost and can't stand it. Sore loser. At least Romney showed a little class when he lost!

He should contest the results but what I find amazing is some of the comments ! Democrats are saying face it you lost move on ? Well I clearly remember when a Democrat lost by a slim margin and was declared the loser then he contested it and suddenly out of the blue he was declared the winner . There was fraud in that case as the democrat votes were sent from who knows where ? In this case we have a pastor who has claimed that people were paid 15 dollars a vote ! And there is documented cases of even more proof how this election was stolen . Democrats and the rhino Republicans elite stole the election pure and simple .
