McDaniel Says Cochran Stole Election

In a fundraising email to supporters, Chris McDaniel (R) says Sen. Thad Cochran (R) "stole last week's runoff election" and is asking for money to wage a legal battle, the Jackson Clarion Ledger reports.

Writes McDaniel: "Thanks to illegal voting from liberal Democrats, my opponent stole last week's runoff election, but I'm not going down without a fight. I have not given up on sending my conservative values to Washington."

Meanwhile, a source on the Cochran campaign told Business Insider that McDaniel is a "clinically diagnosable narcissist" and a scam artist.

Dave Weigel: "There's no recent precedent for a challenge like this. For the moment, there are just the poll books, and the rumors, and the trading of insults."
