GOPe Senator Thad Chochran out April 1

Postby bignflnut » Tue Mar 06, 2018 11:13 am

U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran announced Monday he is resigning effective April 1 because of health reasons, ending one of the longest and most storied political careers in Mississippi history.


Cochran's announcement could have a direct impact on U.S. Sen. Roger Wicker's re-election bid. The state's junior senator faces a Republican primary challenge from state Sen. Chris McDaniel, who unsuccessfully challenged Cochran in 2014. McDaniel said last week that he would consider dropping his challenge to Wicker and running in a special election if Cochran were to resign. McDaniel's decision will likely hinge on whom Gov. Phil Bryant appoints to replace Cochran.
