JACKSON, Mississippi — The Mississippi Supreme Court will hear oral arguments Oct. 2 as a candidate tries to revive a lawsuit that challenged his Republican primary loss to Sen. Thad Cochran.
The high court released a schedule Tuesday for the appeal by state Sen. Chris McDaniel.
Justices gave McDaniel's attorneys until Friday to file legal arguments in his appeal. They gave Cochran's attorneys a Sept. 24 deadline to file arguments.
Judge Hollis McGehee dismissed McDaniel's lawsuit Aug. 29, saying the candidate had waited too long to file it.
The tea party-supported state senator claims the June 24 runoff was spoiled by voting irregularities.
