A Facebook post from Sen. Thad Cochran's daughter is the latest twist in what has been a remarkable campaign in Mississippi.

Kate Cochran, an associate professor at the University of Southern Mississippi, has put up a lengthy examination of the race. It is, in a word, stinging.

Robert Costa of the Washington Post said there was a brief retort from state Sen. Chris McDaniel on his Facebook page but it appears to have vanished. Costa saved it here.
