Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Monday, June 23, 2014

Democrats have said they have a virtually once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to win a U.S. Senate seat in Mississippi but only if tea party darling and Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel (R) beats incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) for the Republican nomination. So it's easy to imagine the response when news broke that a Democratic operative has actually been helping Cochran's re-election efforts. Renick Taylor, a Democratic activist and chairman of the Harrison County Democrats, said of the effort, "It's despicable and Democrats should vote for Democrats. When a white conservative plays a black leader to convince black people to vote for the white conservative, as soon as that game is exposed, there's fallout on both sides. The African-American community is not going to appreciate being sold like that and the McDaniel supporters are going to be rabid at Cochran for trying to bring Democrats in the Republican party. So there's no winning there. It was a stupid, dumb move."

I hate to say it but even if Cochran wins Democrats are going to destroy him in the general election.
