McDaniel says he'll announce his decision on an appeal Friday or Monday

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

State Senator Chris McDaniel announced on his Facebook page Thursday night that he'll announce Friday or Monday if he'll appeal the dismissal of this election challenge.

McDaniel lost to Senator Thad Cochran in a June 24 runoff election by more than seven thousand votes, but cited election irregularities when he filed his legal challenge.

Special judge Hollis McGenee dismissed that challenge August 28.

McDaniel said it wouldn't have been proper to issue a statement of intent about a possible appeal without Judge McGenee's written order.  The Judge's order was signed and entered into the Jones County Circuit Clerk's office late Thursday afternoon.

McDaniel thanked his friends and supporter in the post, and told them he's committed as ever to fighting for their voices and values.
