McDaniel has an excellent shot of retiring Cochran for good. Cannot wait for primary day.
Here’s the problem with Mississippi- despite the reputation they have for crazy, unorthodox politicians, Mississippi will generally only pick people properly trained and groomed to be politicians- Go to Ole Miss, pledge Sigma Chi, get elected to University Student Council or Cheerleader, go to Ole Miss Law School, join a Congressional Staff, build a network of donors, only run for office when a Congressman or Senator retires, play it safe, talk like a Country Boy in Mississippi, talk like a New York insider when you get to Washington.
Party means nothing any longer... Principles mean EVERYTHING!
Can you tell me a little about the MS primary voting?
Is it open or closed
Date of the primary
How many are in the GOP Senate primary
Is there any polling data out
Thanks for any guidance
Former Dem trying to beat current Dem...we lose either way
What hurts the most is the lack of knowledge of the people of MS, who for years voted for Eastland and Stennis without any reservation at all. And Cochran has been around nearly as long as Stennis, probably longer than Eastland. People in MS know nothing of Cochran’s real record.
Haley Barbour is a fat, twangy, s.o.b.
Without giving my age away...oh, let’s just put it this way.
I was in junior high school when Thad Cochran was elected to the Senate.
No one, regardless of whether they have a D or R after their name, should be holding office for that long.
