'We are not going to concede': Mississippi Senate candidate Chris McDaniel talks about Tuesday's runoff result

On radio this morning, Mississippi State Senator (R) joined Glenn for the first time since his loss to incumbent Senator Thad Cochran (R-MS) in Tuesday’s runoff. McDaniel explained why he is “disturbed” by Tuesday’s election results and why he has thus far refused to concede.

A day removed the surprising results, McDaniel admitted he “doesn’t feel much better” about how things turned out. McDaniel believes that Republican primaries should be decided by Republican voters, but, unfortunately, those are not the election rules in Mississippi.

“I thought Republican primaries were about Republicans,” McDaniel said. “I'm not pleased about the fact liberal Democrats decided the U.S. Senate nominee for the state of Mississippi. I think it's disturbing.”

As Glenn has reported, the GOP establishment and Cochran campaign stopped at nothing to ensure the balance of power was maintained. McDaniel was all too familiar with the questionable tactics.

“They did every dirty trick in the book, behaving just like liberal Democrats do. That was one of the things that was so disturbing. Here's a party I have fought for my entire life. I have been fighting for these guys… I have been out there doing everything the way they always wanted me to do it,” McDaniel said. “I find that strange, the very ideology that they are going to be proclaiming to fight against was the very one they embraced to put a conservative out of the race. That's wrong, under anybody's level.”

McDaniel has decided not to concede the race and is currently considering legal action because of “irregularities” in the voting.

“We are not going to concede because there were so many irregularities. We know if someone did vote in the earlier June 3rd primary on the Democrat side, it is illegal for them to cross over and vote. But we also know that if you have no intention of supporting the candidate, you should not vote for him in the primary,” McDaniel explained. “So where do we go from here? That's a great question. We are talking to lawyers now, trying to move forward the best way we know how. And we'll make some tough decisions here the next five or six days.”

Ultimately, McDaniel, much like many Americans, is disappointed with the direction of this country and the direction of the Republican Party. He hopes this race will light a fire under conservatives everywhere to speak out against the GOP.

“If you were to ask me if I'm pleased with the direction of this party, I will tell you absolutely not. I think conservatives all across the country have reason to be outraged with what happened in Mississippi,” McDaniel said. “The Mississippians hearing this, you can't be pleased with the direction of this party. You may take some consolation that Senator Cochran won, but how he won is absolutely improper from our standpoint.”

“Best of luck, Chris, and don't harden your heart,” Glenn concluded. “I was so angry, and a lot of America was really angry. But we win in the end, if we remain decent and good and righteous people.”

Sen. Ted Cruz: NOBODY should be afraid of Trump's Supreme Court justice pick

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to weigh in on President Donald Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees and talk about his timely new book, "One Vote Away: How a Single Supreme Court Seat Can Change History."

Sen. Cruz argued that, while Congressional Democrats are outraged over President Trump's chance at a third court appointment, no one on either side should be afraid of a Supreme Court justice being appointed if it's done according to the founding documents. That's why it's crucial that the GOP fills the vacant seat with a true constitutionalist.

Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Wednesday to talk about why he believes President Donald Trump will nominate Judge Amy Coney Barrett to fill the Supreme Court vacancy created by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's death.

Lee, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee that will consider and vote on the nominee, also weighed in on another Supreme Court contender: Judge Barbara Lagoa. Lee said he would not be comfortable confirming Lagoa without learning more about her history as it pertains to upholding the U.S. Constitution.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.
