August 4, 2014: State Senator Chris McDaniel, in bitter fight with incumbent Thad Cochran for the GOP nomination for U.S. Senate, files a formal challenge of the primary runoff results.

McDaniel took issue in particular with the Cochran campaign's welcoming of Democrats into the primary to support Cochran, who won the runoff. The courts ultimately disagreed with McDaniel, and Cochran was certified as the nominee and won the general election in November.

Cochran is still in the U.S. Senate, and McDaniel continues to serve in the state senate.
