FLOWOOD, Miss. (AP) - Challenger Chris McDaniel is pushing to mobilize his core supporters in the closing hours of the runoff campaign for Mississippi's Republican nomination for Senate.

This comes after U.S. Sen. John McCain was in Jackson to praise incumbent Thad Cochran's record on military issues.

McDaniel rallied about 70 volunteers Monday evening along a busy suburban highway in the key Republican battleground of Rankin County.

The state senator from Ellisville is assuring supporters that their intensity and disgust for Washington will prevail Tuesday over the parade of state and national Republican officials aiding the six-term incumbent. McDaniel is bashing Cochran as "liberal" for seeking runoff votes from independents and Democrats.
