JACKSON, Miss. — The ghost of election’s past may be in the spotlight again during the upcoming legislative session.
If you paid any attention to elections last year then you know about State Senator Chris McDaniel challenging his election loss to incumbent U.S. Senator Thad Cochran in court.
McDaniel told the Clarion Ledger he plans to introduce legislation to stop Democrats from selecting Republican nominees during the election process. That should be easy for McDaniel to bring to the floor since McDaniel is Chairman of the Senate Election Committee.
Also, Attorney Mitch Tyner who was McDaniel’s lawyer during the election challenge, is running for office as the Central Public Service Commissioner. Tyner says he has a problem with Mississippi Power’s new experiment coal plant in Kemper County since it is the first time rate payers have paid for a power plant before it was even operational.
