In 2016, the Republican Party had overwhelming control of the U.S. House of Representatives and a Republican majority in the U.S. Senate. President Barack Obama, however, was able to thwart the Republican Congress. On Nov. 4, 2016, the voters shocked Democrats and their mainstream media allies by electing billionaire businessman and reality TV star, Donald Trump, a Republican, to succeed Barack Obama.

Republicans across the country expected to see a unified Republican-controlled government that would repeal Obamacare, cut taxes, grow the military, downsize the federal government, build a border wall, enforce America’s immigration laws and take in fewer Muslim refugees.

On Thursday, August 7, the Mississippi Republican Party has refused to hear a challenge from State Senator Chris McDaniel (R) of the results of its June Republican Party U.S. Senate runoff, which McDaniel lost by just over 7,000 votes to Mississippi’s longtime Senator Thad Cochran (R).

Alabama resident and conservative activist, Shaun McCutcheon who is supporting McDaniel’s efforts called the Mississippi election results a sham. McCutcheon said in a written statement to his supporters, “The Mississippi GOP has refused to overturn the sham runoff election that handed Thad Cochran an illegitimate victory.  Yes, this is a setback for Chris McDaniel and for us, but the fight is far from over.”

Birmingham area engineer, Shaun McCutcheon, is nationally known for his recent victory before the Supreme Court of the United States, where he successfully challenged limits on an individual’s political giving as unconstitutional limits on political speech.

McCutcheon is now deeply involved in Mississippi State Senator Chris McDaniel’s lawsuit challenging the outcome of the recent Republican Primary Runoff in Mississippi.

McCutcheon wrote on Wednesday, July 16, “I filed an official complaint against Thad Cochran’s illegitimate victory in the Mississippi Senate runoff. We are on the front lines fighting to right this grave injustice and ensure that Chris McDaniel – the candidate with the most Republican votes in the run-off – is the Republican nominee!…This official complaint – which clearly lays out the legal remedy of ordering a new election – is a major step forward, but we cannot rest until Cochran’s illegitimate victory is thrown out and a new, fair election is held.  Now, we need to put as much pressure on the Mississippi Secretary of State to ensure Chris McDaniel has the opportunity to defeat Thad Cochran in a FAIR election.”
