Razor thin.  Apparently two counties have not reported yet, and in at least one county, Covington, the Election Commisioners who count and report the vote have already gone to bed!

Hangin’ chads ain’t got nuttin’ on us!  It will be a runoff, unless last minute mischief by the vote counters bring someone to the magic 50% + 1 vote.

  Mark your calendars for the runoff:   June 24, 2014

Update (7:55 pm)

lucky cigarThe polls are closed, the Primary Campaign is over!  Nothing left to do but count the votes.  WAPT in Jackson is doing a mighty fine job, and you can follow them >>HERE.<<  It looks like it’s going to be a long night.

Me?  I’m going to kick back on the Veranda, and enjoy the sunset with a fine Maduro from Lucky Cigars.  Do yourself a favor:  drop by their website and order a bundle.  These are some of the finest smokes I’ve had.  I put them right up there next to those Havana smokes by big brah gave me on his return from Saudi.   And, tell ’em Nuke sent you.

Update (4:20 pm)

Polls close in less than three hours.  Weather may be a factor, as the off and on rain storms continue to pound the state.  That bodes well for the candidate who has the most motivated voter support, McDaniel.

cochran-afp-mcdaniel-apIn the Senate race of Chris McDaniel vs. Thad Cochran, I have bad news and good news.

The bad news is that Thad Cochran is carrying his hometown with 99.99% of the voters.

The good news is that those Washington DC voters don’t get to vote in Mississippi elections.
