Thad Cochran’s team is desperate. They’ll do anything to dismiss my election challenge.
Their latest argument? They’re claiming we did not file the challenge on time.
Last week we hit a small bump in the road when a judge granted Cochran’s motion to dismiss based on timeliness.
But there’s one big problem for Cochran and his lawyers: Cochran’s claim is not supported by law or by the state’s top election official.
Secretary of State Hosemann twice told the Clarion-Ledger “there is no deadline under state law for a candidate to file a statewide primary election challenge.” This is yet another false claim from the Cochran team. But we’re used to those.
So we’re appealing the decision to the Mississippi State Supreme Court.
This is an uphill battle, and we’ll incur substantial legal costs, but we can do it with your support. Can you chip in $25, $50, or $75 today to help us continue the fight?
It’s important to note that this issue cuts both ways: it is in the interest of both Democrats and conservative Republicans in Mississippi that party raiding be stopped.
We fully anticipate having our day in court soon.
Our opponents have the entire establishment behind them. They have entrenched corporate interests, massive lobbying firms and law firms with hordes of attorneys billing hundreds of hours to try to subvert the will of Republican primary voters.
So we need your help. Fighting the entire establishment is not cheap. So chip in $75 or whatever you’re able to help us in our fight for liberty.
Our day in court is coming very, very soon. That day will be a momentous day for conservatives around the country.
We’re thankful for your continued support. We could not have gotten to this point without you.
