The candidate who lost a Mississippi Republican primary for U.S. Senate two months ago says he's not giving up before a judge considers his lawsuit challenging the race.
State Sen. Chris McDaniel went a few miles into Tennessee Monday night to talk about the Mississippi contest.
WMC-TV reported about 100 people attended a meeting McDaniel held at a Memphis deli, many coming from DeSoto County, Miss.
Certified results show six-term Sen. Thad Cochran defeated McDaniel by 7,667 votes in the June 24 Republican primary runoff.
A Mississippi judge is scheduled to hear pretrial arguments Thursday in Jones County in McDaniel's lawsuit, which asks the judge to declare him the winner over Cochran or to order a new election.
McDaniel said in Memphis that he will respect the court's decision.
