McDaniel campaign will delay filing election challenge
(from: Swing State Project @ July 25, 2014, 11:56 AM)

Tea Party candidate Chris McDaniel delivers a concession speech in Hattiesburg, Mississippi, June 24, 2014. U.S. Senator Thad Cochran of Mississippi narrowly defeated challenger McDaniel on Tuesday in a high-profile runoff election that pitted the Republi
What are they waiting for?
Last week, tea party senate candidate Chris McDaniel's election lawyer said the campaign would file a legal challenge to the results of his primary runoff against incumbent Republican Thad Cochran in Mississippi within 10 days. Well, it's been 10 days, but still no lawsuit.
Mitch Tyner, attorney for Chris McDaniel, says an expected legal challenge by McDaniel of the June 24 GOP primary runoff won't be filed today.
So, have they given up? Is it time to finally put the popcorn away? No, they say:
Tyner said in an email this morning: "We've been slightly delayed in getting some of the data that we want to include in the challenge and expect to file it next week."
For a month now, these guys have said they have evidence the election should be overturned, yet with the clock running out, they still haven't filed a challenge, and they keep on missing deadline after deadline. Either they don't actually have any evidence for their claims, or they are the stupidest sack of idiots that side of the Mississippi. Actually, probably both.

8:40 AM PT: KS-Gov: Let's not beat around the bush: A new SurveyUSA poll finds Republican Gov. Sam Brownback trailing Democratic state House Minority Leader Paul David by a brutal 48-40, with a Libertarian taking five. SurveyUSA found similar numbers a month ago, when they found Davis up by six points. Brownback has posted some bad numbers before, but never quite this bad.

There are many reasons why Brownback has become so toxic in this very red state. In short, the governor and his conservative allies in the legislature have made brutal service cuts, especially to education. Brownback cut taxes without any idea of how to make up for the lost revenue, and Kansans are feeling the effects. It takes a lot to go from a 63-32 victory to a deficit in the polls in only four years, but Brownback has more than earned the dubious distinction of being the country's most vulnerable red state governor.

One small good piece of news for Brownback is that he doesn't appear to be in any primary danger. SurveyUSA finds him leading unheralded primary challenger Jennifer Winn 60-30. Not an impressive result, but it does indicate that at least some people can still stand Sam Brownback.
