Austin Barbour of Cochran campaign  started the conference call, after a few minutes of talking about working with McDaniel volunteers in the Hinds County(Jackson) courthouse reviewing ballots The call then continued  as various people engaged  about whether the man who interrupted the call was a Cochran plant or “maybe Obama” .  Then a caller referred to African American voter as "cotton pickers for Cochran, They darkly noted that whoever asked the question “wasn’t doing McDaniel no favors” and suggested that it was part of a plot to get the national media to say that McDaniel supporters think African Americans are “cotton-pickers.” Another woman on the call was confused about the harvesting cotton reference, after all she was a 36-year-old white female who had harvested cotton too.
