It would appear that the GOP establishment -- Mitch McConnell, Haley Barbour, and the Chamber of Crony Capitalism in particular -- stooped to the lowest of low campaign tactics to convince Democrats (and blacks in particular) to vote in the Republican primary.
Consider the following flyer sent out on behalf of Cochran to African-American communities after it was determined that the incumbent had virtually no chance of winning the primary.

Rush Limbaugh today pilloried the GOP establishment for its complicity with these tactics.
“The Republican establishment sought victory via Democrat voters in the runoff, and they got them. Without the African-American vote from Democrat-leaning counties, Thad Cochrane would have lost by eight or nine percent last night,” Limbaugh said, calling the tactic “reprehensible.” ... Limbaugh cited a flyer, posted by journalist Charles Johnson that suggested McDaniel and the tea party wanted to prevent blacks from voting in the Mississippi runoff election on Tuesday. Cochran’s critics allege the longtime senator’s campaign was behind the flyers.
McDaniel is fighting back, as well he should.
We haven’t conceded and we’re not going to concede right now. We’re going to investigate.
Naturally sometimes it’s difficult to contest an election, obviously, but we do know that 35,000 Democrats crossed over. And we know many of those Democrats did vote in the Democratic primary just three weeks ago which makes it illegal.
We likewise know that we have a statute, a law in our state that says you cannot participate in a primary unless you intend to support that candidate. And we know good and well that these 35,000 democrats have no intention to do that. They’ll be voting for Travis Childers in November. We know that. They know that. And so that makes their actions illegal.
So we’re going to be fighting this.
We need fighters. We need warriors who will fight the entrenched, doddering, senile, Jabba-the-Hut-like GOP establishment just as hard as they fight Obama and the rest of the Marxist left.
Chris McDaniel is our kind of fighter. You can support him here.
