Political Analysts Say McDaniel Needs Hard Evidence To Win Election Challenge

“The clock is ticking on whether there will be a challenge filed or not.” says Nosef. “There’s a 12 day deadline. I’m hoping that that process will finish sooner rather then later. If there is going to be a contest, I want it and get it over with as fast as we can so we can focus on the general election.”…

…”At some point we are going to have to see if the McDaniel campaign comes forward with credible evidence to show that there are a large number of ballots that are in doubt.” says Hasen. ” I think he will first be taking a challenge to the party and then if he fails that, going in to court. So were going to have to wait to see if he has the evidence to back up the rhetoric.”…

…..”The only thing that is potentially illegal is if somebody voted in the Democratic Primary and then voted in the Republican Runoff.” says Bruce. “The notion of voting in the runoff if you don’t intend to support the eventual nominee is un-testable and unenforceable. I think the hill that has to be climbed by the McDaniel campaign is a very steep hill, and I don’t think they have what it takes to do it.”
