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.
