JACKSON — The Democratic nominee for Senate, former U.S. Rep. Travis Childers, says Mississippi voters should get to make a side-by-side comparison of him and the man he’s trying to unseat.
Childers is holding a news conference today to challenge six-term Republican Sen. Thad Cochran to a series of debates before the Nov. 4 election.
Cochran did not debate his Republican primary challenger and has said voters can compare candidates’ records without seeing them on the same stage.
Meanwhile, it remained unclear when state Sen. Chris McDaniel would announce whether he will try to revive his lawsuit that sought to overturn Cochran’s Republican primary victory. McDaniel’s camp had said he would announce yesterday whether he will ask the Mississippi Supreme Court to reverse a judge’s dismissal of the case. He did not.
