I guess Dems will shove all those voter suppression charges in the wake of black surge for Cochran!
Sen. Thad Cochran, who won the Mississippi runoff for the GOP senate nomination did so with black votes despite having an "F" rating from the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. But allies of his campaign put out fliers wrongfully accusing Tea Party candidate Chris McDaniel of wanting to keep blacks from voting.
The big black turnout for Cochran saved him from certain defeat. Jeff Jacoby writing at the Boston Globe points out that this must mean voting rights for blacks are safe and secure. If one of the most Southern states, in a GOP primary, can let blacks who aren't even Democrats vote then what was all that crying about voter suppression? This election was the first test of Mississippi's photo ID for voters law. Seems it worked pretty well.
Will this stop the Democrats from repeating the phony charge of voter suppression? No, of course not. They won't drop that old chestnut any more than they will drop the GOP war on women despite how many GOP women candidates are getting savaged by Dem opponents. Just like Harry Reid and the phony billionaires, it isn't the truth that is important. It's how many low information voters they can trick into believing a lie!
