McDaniel moves toward runoff challenge

Mississippi state Sen. Chris McDaniel (R) will file a challenge to the results of his primary battle with Sen. Thad Cochran (R) with the Mississippi Republican Executive Committee on Monday.

McDaniel will unveil the challenge during a Monday afternoon press conference, his campaign confirmed to The Hill, which was announced to reporters last week and teased as an opportunity for McDaniel “to announce a major development regarding the results of the June 24 runoff election.”
