Establishment Throws In Towel? Crossroads Pulls Out of Mississippi

American Crossroads will be staying out of the Republican primary race for U.S. Senate in Mississippi and will not be spending money on the runoff between incumbent Thad Cochran and challenger Chris McDaniel. The Republican-affiliated super PAC, who once employed former Mississippi governor and Cochran supporter Haley Barbour, will not spend resources on behalf of either candidate.
McDaniel appears to have won slightly more votes against Cochran in Tuesday's primary, though he did not win at least 50 percent of the vote and both will face off for the GOP nomination on June 24.
Update: American Crossroads spokesman Paul Lindsay emails to say that the group was never involved in the primary. This post has been updated to reflect that.
