The nastiest primary fight in the nation is headed for a vicious finale as Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.) and state Sen. Chris McDaniel begin a runoff that could have major repercussions on the battle for the Senate.
McDaniel’s team believes it has a strong shot at toppling Cochran, who failed to top 50 percent support in Tuesday’s primary despite strong support from the party establishment a number of controversies for McDaniel’s campaign.
Cochran’s team said Wednesday they have no plans to change up their message, and think focusing on the turnout game could lead them to victory. They’ve been touting Cochran’s seniority and what it brings to Mississippi, as well as knocking McDaniel for his out-of-state support.
“We kinda like to fight in Mississippi. When people from out of state start telling people from Mississippi what to do, it just never works out really well,” one Cochran strategist told The Hill.
