MS GOP leaders congratulate the winners

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

U.S. Senator Roger Wicker congratulated his fellow Republicans after electoral victories were declared for Senator Thad Cochran, and Representatives Gregg Harper, Alan Nunnelee, and Steven Palazzo.

“I congratulate Senator Cochran and Congressmen Harper, Nunnelee, and Palazzo on their wins tonight," said Wicker. "It was a spirited campaign season, and I commend all those involved for participating in the democratic process, regardless of party or outcome.

“In the end, the people of Mississippi have elected a seasoned team to fight on their behalf in Washington," added Wicker. "There is much work to do. Our country faces a number of serious challenges at home and abroad. Americans recognize that President Obama and his allies in Congress have done little to stem the tide of joblessness or bolster the United States' standing in the world. They want leadership and solutions."

“Only two years remain of the President's final term in office and our congressional delegation will work to hold the President and his Administration accountable. We are well positioned to do the job that Mississippians sent us here to do.”

Governor Phil Bryant also congratulated the winners.

"I want to congratulate Sen. Cochran and Reps. Harper, Palazzo and Nunnelee on their re-election victories tonight," said Gov. Bryant said. "I know they'll continue to represent the people of Mississippi and their conservative values in Congress while fighting the liberal agenda of President Obama. This is a great night for the Republican Party in Mississippi."
