The intense months of political campaigning and poll preparation have all come down to this day: primary election day. One of the most intense races for the primary nominations in Mississippi has been for the Republican seat in the U.S. Senate.

State Senator Chris McDaniel is challenging incumbent, Thad Cochran, who is now going for his seventh term in the U.S. Senate. McDaniel cast his vote with his family Tuesday morning, teaching his young son how to use the voting machine. McDaniel says throughout the campaign, he has been keeping a close eye on survey data from potential voters and says most of them have shown him in the lead.

McDaniel says, “You know, I say all the time, when he went there in 1973, Richard Nixon was President. This is a different time, different era, different concerns, different worries. Right now, one of the crushing things we have to worry about is the debt, deficit spending. Senator Cochran has no sort of inclination to address that issue at all. He voted to fund Obamacare. He’s voted to increase my income taxes, the gas taxes, the internet taxes. He’s voted to increase the debt ceiling on multiple occasions.” McDaniel wanted to thank the thousands of volunteers, from Mississippi and other states, who helped him run a competitive campaign.
