Thad Cochran's latest ad in Mississippi's GOP runoff is just brutal

Thad Cochran's latest ad in Mississippi's GOP runoff is just brutal

Mississippi's Republican runoff election is ending in a very ugly way. On one hand, you have Sen. Thad Cochran, who is airing this brutal ad hitting Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel:

Meanwhile, having heard that Cochran would attempt to bring Democrats to the polls, some prominent McDaniel backers have announced they would deploy poll watchers in Mississippi — a move that predictably led some observers to cite Mississippi's history of voter intimidation. It's going to be an interesting 24 hours or so.

Stay classy, Mississippi.
