Cochran Makes Comeback to Win Republican Nomination

Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) made a strong comeback to win the Republican Senate nomination in Mississippi. Cochran was forced into a run-off after failing to win 50 percent of the vote in the earlier primary. He was a major target of the Tea Party. Cochran is the Ranking Member of the Senate agriculture committee and former chairman of the Senate agriculture committee and appropriations committee.

He played a key role in the Senate in getting this year’s farm bill passed.
