My Turn: U. S. Senate Race

Posted: Updated:

Republican Senator Thad Cochran has served three terms in the United States House of Representatives and 35 years in the Senate. 

In past elections it would be unthinkable that Cochran would be challenged by anyone within his own party.  All that may be changing with recent polls showing that 85% of Americans disapprove of the job Congress is doing and almost 50% say that everyone in Congress should be replaced. 

State Senator Chris McDaniel announced he is running for the Senate against Cochran.  McDaniel is a TEA Party favorite and has received endorsements from other conservative groups. 

This could be a very interesting Senatorial race if Cochran decides to run and if he retires it most certainly will be a hotly contested election. Stay tuned!
