Cochran Seeks Black Voters in Runoff

Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) is asking black voters to rescue him in his GOP Senate runoff with Chris McDaniel (R), the New York Times reports.

"It is a remarkable political science experiment, and it also may be the only path to victory left to Mr. Cochran. But after being narrowly edged out by Mr. McDaniel, 41, in the Republican primary earlier this month, Mr. Cochran, 76, needs to expand the number of voters who will show up for the runoff, which is open to any Mississippi resident who did not vote in the Democratic primary. The winner on Tuesday will face former Representative Travis Childers, a conservative Democrat, in November."
