Unlikely runoff means three more weeks of politics
Now that the Cochran-McDaniel race has gone to a runoff, I feel regretfully compelled to write again on the subject.
As I said in my previous column, this is a choice of ideology or money. McDaniel is the purist and would refuse federal bucks on principle. Sen. Cochran has power and clout galore that will directly benefit Mississippi.
The race has gotten many people riled up and of course the negative campaigning is at a crescendo. No matter what I write, someone will be offended.
