    This open/closed primary system will surely raise its head again in the Presidential primaries.
    Not to mention each state's parties trying to rewrite their own primary rules after this term.

    That does make sense as well. My dad used to tell about when he was growing up in W. Tennessee they often didn't have local general elections, because there was no one running on the GOP side.

    What ever the states decide or what ever the parties within any state decide.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I', glad that Cochran won, but I sure think that the idea of open primaries is nuts.

    Don't confuse the title given to the video by another with anything I haven't said. Duh!

    I have been at the Hinds County Court house this morning.
    Here's a page from Hinds County voter roll book.
    The column on the left is where the voter voted in Democrat primary on June 3rd 2014.
    The column on the right is where that same voter voted in the Republican run off on June 24th 2014.
    This is patently illegal!

    The problem is the Hinds County Republican Party in my opinion is dragging its feet in allowing access to "all" the voter information in a timely fashion to complete the audit.
    It appears they are trying to run the clock out and certify the election results on Monday of next week preventing Chris McDaniel from completing an audit of the vote.

    McDaniel's people have already uncovered 700 illegal votes in Hinds county alone, and they aren't done counting there.

    If McDaniel pushes this hard enough, then the evidence will show that McDaniel himself committed voter fraud. From Mississippi Code:

    "§ 23-15-575. Participation in primary election

    No person shall be eligible to participate in any primary election unless he intends to support the nominations made in the primary in which he participates
    ."

    Since McDaniel has no intention of supporting the nominee, then he committed voter fraud when he cast his vote.

    He actually said he would pray about it.
