Cochran defeats McDaniel

Posted: Updated:
JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Associated Press has just called the GOP Senate Runoff in favor of Thad Cochran.

Cochran took the early lead and held it all evening in beating Tea Party Challenger Chris McDaniel. The margin was slim at times, but Cochran never lost the lead.

There are still absentee ballots to count, but with 99% of today's vote counted, Cochran has a 6,700 vote lead. The latest vote totals are here.

Only 1300 votes separated incumbent Thad Cochran and challenger Chris McDaniel in the June 3rd primary, but that time, McDaniel was on top.
