Supreme court rejects McDaniel's election challenge appeal

JACKSON, MS (WDAM) - The Mississippi Supreme Court has rejected Chris McDaniel's appeal to a judge's decision that said the former United States Senate candidate did not file an election challenge in a timely manner.

On September 4, special appointed Judge Hollis McGehee dismissed McDaniel's challenge of the Republican primary runoff loss to Sen. Thad Cochran because McDaniel missed the deadline to file suit.

A full copy of Friday's Supreme Court decision can be found here.

The court ruled 4-2 against McDaniel, but presiding Justice Jess H. Dickinson, Justice David A. Chandler and Justice Randy G. Pierce did not participate in the case.

Incumbent Senator Thad Cochran will face Democrat Travis Childers in the general election on November 4.
