Skip to comments.GOP Establishment's 'Save Cochran' Campaign Fizzling
Posted on 02/07/2014 11:21:53 AM PST by cotton1706
Is this the best the Establishment has got on Chris McDaniel?
A super PAC associated with former Mississippi Gov. and current lobbyist Haley Barbour has resorted to attacking McDaniel for voting for bills that Barbour supported and signed into law.
And in one instance, the group accuses McDaniel of voting for a bill he didn't vote for. Barbour, incidentally, also signed that one into law.
McDaniel has secured endorsements from the conservative groups like the Club for Growth, the Senate Conservatives Fund, Heritage Action, and Freedomworks. The Washington establishment appears to be deeply concerned that Cochran is in trouble before the June 3 primary.
In fact, Barbour's nephew Henry, who is also a lobbyist and advising the group, conceded to the New York Times that Cochran is "vulnerable" in what will be a low-turnout primary in an anti-Washington and anti-establishment environment.
Time magazine described Cochran as a "seasoned appropriator" who is a "spitting image of the Republican establishment," which is rushing to his aid. Haley Barbour will reportedly raise money for the pro-Cochran super PAC in Washington and Mississippi.
After the pro-Cochran group, Mississippi Conservatives, started to run statewide television ads attacking McDaniel last week, it created a website that implies that McDaniel is not fiscally conservative because he supported 23 different bills in the Mississippi legislature that added to the state's debt. The super PAC cites McDaniel's votes to fund watershed repair, mental health programs, local bridge repairs, passenger rail infrastructure and state agencies, community colleges, and economic development. Barbour signed into law 13 of the 23 bills the super PAC cites to attack McDaniel. Three other bills were signed by current Gov. Phil Bryant, who has endorsed Cochran but criticized the super PAC for attacking McDaniel on the airwaves.

I used to like Haley Barbour. Now he’s just another establishment-type who needs to sit down & shut up.
With hindsight, I think he always was. It is safe to come out now after so many masks fell like leaves in the past few years.
haley is as bad as any rat and he was my governor.
Like backing a scared dog into a corner, there comes a point when it realizes it has no way out and will take aggressive measures in response. Maybe I’m wrong but it appears the American ruling elite are beginning to realize that the citizens of the US have had enough of the ruling elite’s lawlessness at the expense of the nation’s liberty and like a scared dog, there is no doubt the ruling elite will take aggressive measures in order to maintain control and wealth.
Barbour was always establishment from the start of his career.
I sense desperation in the air.
Haley Barbour is a lobbyist for MEXICO...he is no conservative
Cochran is gonna get thumped
Can you imagine how the establishment of both parties will feel if we get more than half these RINOs out? If we get more help for Cruz, there will be much wailing and gnashing of teeth.
MS ping sorta
I’m completely disgusted with the Barbour’s and Cochran.
Me too. If anyone gets the ID channel. Watch out for a show called “Fatal Vows” episode “Black Pearl”. It is about one of Haley’s pardons. David Gatlin shot and killed his ex wife with their 3 month old child laying in the bed with her.
We have DirecTV.
Off hand, I don’t recognize that channel.
I’d like to see that episode.
I’m so sorry I ever liked Haley Barbour.
That episode isn’t on Amazon Prime but it’s $1.99
I have THAD enough!
haley barbour would be at home in james carville’s family and in the clinton household. POS to the tenth power!
Wipe their dust from your feet and never look back!
