Bill Scher (Real Clear Politics, Politico) and Matt K. Lewis (The Daily Beast, MattLewis.org)

On The DMZ, Bill and Matt discuss the GOP Senate primary in Mississippi, where Thad Cochran pulled out a surprising win over Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel. Bill talks about some of the quirks of politics in the South that might have tipped the race in Cochran’s favor, and Matt wonders whether Cochran’s victory means that populist, big-government conservatism is making a comeback. They move on to the Supreme Court’s rulings on presidential recess appointments and abortion-clinic buffer zones. Is Bernie Sanders the liberal to give Hillary Clinton a run for her money in 2016? Plus: The agony and the ecstasy of the World Cup.
