Thad Cochran trails Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel by less than 1,000 votes with most of the votes counted. Neither hit the magic 50 percent marker.
Mississippi GOP Nailbiter Senate Race Heads For Runoff
June 3, 2014

Despite the scandal involving Chris McDaniel's supporters and Thad Cochran's ill wife, neither candidate has been able to secure 50 percent of the vote, with more than 97 percent of the precincts reporting.

If one or the other doesn't break the 50 percent barrier, they will head for a runoff in three weeks.

The spoiler is Republican candidate Thomas Carey, who siphoned off over 4,000 votes from the other two candidates.

There's still a chance McDaniel could edge out Cochran in the final count and hit 50 percent. If so, this post will be updated.
