Chris McDaniel addresses supporters after falling behind in a heated GOP runoff election against U.S. Senator Thad Cochran on Tuesday (AP).

KTTH hosts Michael Medved and David Boze shared their thoughts on the U.S. Senate runoff election in Mississippi on Tuesday, where incumbent Thad Cochran beat Tea Party challenger and former conservative talk radio host Chris McDaniel.

Medved said that a Chris McDaniel win would’ve been a disaster for the Republicans, opening up the Mississippi seat to competition from a Democrat, and driving potential moderates away from the Republican brand.

“Thank god McDaniel lost,” Medved said. “It would’ve made it much harder for Republicans to win the Senate; Republicans would have to spend the time and money defending the seat.

A ghost from McDaniel’s past appeared during the campaign in the form of a clip from his radio show where he commented that he would allow “mamacitas” to immigrate to America because of their physical appearance.
