WASHINGTON (July 4, 2014) Chris McDaniel, the Republican who lost a primary runoff election to Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran says he plans to challenge the results in court "any day now."

McDaniel says he believes there were thousands of irregularities.

In an interview with CNN Friday, McDaniel said what matters is that fraud be uncovered where it exists.

He said many Mississippi residents are "very angry" because they think their votes in the June 24 primary were nullified by fraud.

McDaniel says his campaign found at least 5,000 irregularities in voting, most of which involving people who evidently voted in the June 3 Democratic primary and then the Republican runoff.

Mississippi does not register voters by party, but state law bans a person from voting in one party's primary and another party's runoff in the same cycle.
