Miss. high court seeks more info from McDaniel

Posted: Updated:

JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - The Mississippi Supreme Court is seeking more information about state Sen. Chris McDaniel's request for voting records as he prepares a possible challenge of his loss to Sen. Thad Cochran in a Republican primary runoff.

Three justices Tuesday asked McDaniel to tell them what laws address the disclosure of voters' personal information. They're also asking Attorney General Jim Hood and Harrison County Circuit Clerk Gayle Parker to respond to McDaniel's request for voting records that include birthdates.

McDaniel on Tuesday also sued Rankin County Circuit Clerk Rebecca Boyd for access to voter rolls.

A Jackson County circuit judge ordered Circuit Clerk Joe Martin to give McDaniel access to voter rolls there.

Texas-based U.S. District Judge Nancy Atlas was assigned to hear a federal lawsuit involving access to Mississippi voting records.
