No one knows if Thad Cochran would have won if Democrats didn't vote for him, but isn't that the point, the uncertainty of the election because of this fact.
Because something is legal doesn't make it right and just.
I have heard all the excuses and it is disgusting that some people will put aside integrity and honor and try to throw an election. I have seen quotes from some who have said they have no intentions of voting Republican in November or they voted for Chris McDaniel because they think that the Democrat could have beaten McDaniel.
It is sad that in Mississippi and in America some people have the "win at all cost" mentality, even if it is at the expense of their own honor and integrity.
