    Not necessarily. The far right, who think that Cochran is a traitor and is the same as a Democrat, may say home. Moreover, McD might run as a write-in and reduce Cochran by a few p%.

    The group I'm with do like medicare and social security there's no doubt about that. They see these as beneficial for everyone and do want to preserve them. They do not however like wasteful spending, but also do not mind the government spending tax dollars wisely on things that may benefit others. I myself am probably more anti-government than most in the Tea Party as I can see 50% of government organizations going away without a problem. I doubt many in the Tea Party would agree with me.

    I have been told Cochran is a big spending Republican - ie., liberal lite. He's not someone I would vote for if I had the choice.

    The comedy just gets funnier.

    McDaniel Voted as Democrat

    McDaniel Voted as Democrat

    RINO – Republican In Name Only – is a term used to describe people who are not truly Republican, they just run as a Republican on the ballot to get elected. Is Chris McDaniel a RINO?

    He claims he is a lifelong Republican, but…

    He voted in the Democratic Primary

    “Records show conservative Republican U.S. Senate candidate Chris McDaniel voted as a Democrat in the 2003 state primary.” –Associated Press 11/13/2013

    Chris McDaniel denied it. But, “McDaniel’s campaign spokesman Keith Plunkett said it is possible McDaniel voted in the 2003 Democratic primary.”

    Mississippi’s Secretary of State Delbert Hosemann confirms it: “I looked at [the records], and they show he voted Democrat when Haley Barbour, Amy Tuck, Tate Reeves and Stacey Pickering were running in the Republican Primary. They also show he didn’t vote in the presidential election in 2004 — when Bush was running — and didn’t vote in the Republican Primary in 2008.”

    Thank goodness. Aside form Cantor this primary season has been a series of defeats for the Tea Party and I couldn't be more pleased for our party.

    I acknowledge all of that is true. They still aren't Mississippi, however. If they were, they would never have sent Richard Lugar, a moderate Republican, to the Senate. Can you honestly imagine a moderate Republican ever being elected to anything in Mississippi? I can't.

    Only in the bizarre world of Far Right politics would Thad Cochran be described as a liberal anything.

    Big spending GOP members who never saw an ear mark they didn't like is what I call a Republican acting like a liberal.

    Apparently a lot of people from all political persuasions think Sen. Cochran is a moderate Republican.
    We've heard him called much worse by McDaniel's people, who could care less about the Gov't largesse Cochran brings home.

    And let's not forget Sen. Trent Lott, who was certainly no TEA-partier.
