Will Cochran Survive His Primary Challenge?

"What Chris McDaniel is trying to do Tuesday - defeat an incumbent U.S. senator from Mississippi - would be almost unheard of in the state's history," the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports.

"If McDaniel prevails against long-serving Sen. Thad Cochran in Tuesday's Republican primary, it would mark the first time since 1942 an incumbent from Mississippi lost a U.S. Senate race. That year Jim Eastland defeated incumbent Wall Doxey, who had won a special election in 1941 after the death of Sen. Pat Harrison."

Clarion Ledger: "Voters say contentious races are not new to Mississippi, but they can't remember a Senate race that has been so nasty."
