Senate Conservatives Fund not backing down from Chris McDaniel/Thad Cochran fight

Ken Cuccinelli, the former Virginia attorney general who’s now president of the Senate Conservatives Fund, said his organization isn’t backing down over the Mississippi runoff election results from June.

Cuccinelli, in an interview with the Washington Examiner following his speech at the Young America’s Foundation conference, said he didn’t regret sending $70,000 to help Chris McDaniel — who lost by 7,600 votes — because the tactics used by incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran were “lamentable.”

“No, we don’t regret [the donation]. We find it lamentable the tactics used. I mean, our candidate won among Republicans in both rounds of the primary — and nobody disputes that, including Thad Cochran,” Cuccinelli said.

Cuccinelli is clearly no fan of Cochran, or those who supported the incumbent, even though that’s kind of their job.
