Brett Favre Endorses Thad Cochran in US Chamber Ad
Breitbart TV ^ | 6-19-14 | Jeff Poor

Posted on 06/19/2014 8:56:00 AM PDT by afraidfortherepublic

In an ad posted on the U.S. Chamber of Commerce's YouTube page on Wednesday, former NFL quarterback Brett Favre, a product of the coastal town of Kiln, MS that played college ball at the University of Southern Mississippi, came out to support incumbent Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS).

“I’ve learned through football that strong leadership makes the difference between winning and losing. And when it comes to our state’s future, trust me: Mississippi can win and win big with Thad Cochran,” Favre said. “Thad Cochran always delivers, just like he did during Katrina."

Cochran is locked into a runoff battle with Tea Party hopeful State Sen. Chris McDaniel that is set for a vote on June 24. The two first faced off in the Mississippi Republican Primary on June 3, with McDaniel having a slight edge in the results. However, without a candidate earning more than 50 percent, the contest is headed to a runoff.

Even the tough guys are turning pansy.

Yesterday Terry Bradshaw was mewling about how the “R******s” need to change their offensive name.

How nice of Brett to pay Haley Barbour back for his pardon of Brett’s sexual deviance legal problem. (Barbour is a Cochran supporter, what a coincidence).

The Cochran camp responded:
“We are not currently looking for quarterback to shore-up our faltering offense. Although Mr. Favre is an accomplished player who is still available to run a preofessiona-level offense, we feel that his open pandering for a large contract within our organization should not be entertained at this time.”

Well, I was trying to remain neutral...;^)

In Bret's defense, I have to say that his family was severely affected by Katrina -- held hostage by the weather and destruction for weeks. I think his SIL was expecting a baby at the time, and Bret sent a lot of help to them. Mountains of food and generators, etc. If Thad Cochran helped the Favre family, I can see where Bret would offer his thanks in return.

Favre ought to get a lot of Packer fans ....in Wisconsin ....to push Cochran over the edge and on to VICTORY...

The Chris McDaniel campaign released a polling memo today boasting an 8-point lead over incumbent U.S. Sen. Thad Cocrhan among likely runoff voters.

The poll, conducted by WPA Opinion Research, has McDaniel at 49 percent and Cochran at 41 percent. The poll of 500 likely GOP primary runoff voters has a margin of error of 4.4 percent and was conducted June 9-10.

It looks like a mash up of Brett & his brother. Brett was sued for sexual harassment; and his brother was pardoned by Barbour.

Earnest Scott Favre "had his record cleared in the 1996 death of his best friend, Mark Haverty," the AP reports. "Favre had driven in front of a train in Pass Christian while drunk, pleaded guilty in 1997, and was sentenced to a year of house arrest followed by two years' probation."

Thad Cochran always delivers, just like he did during Katrina."

That is Cochran's argument in a nutshell. He brings federal money to the state. Thank God some state residents realize that electing a "King of Pork" to the Senate is not in the long term interests of the country or state.

Ah. Clearly this is just a favor return then.

On the one hand, I’m surprised he would associate his name with any non- democrat ( read: America hating leftist). On the other hand, he’s dead to me.

I always thought he was a cut above

Nah. Got the correct info here:

“Earnest Scott Favre “had his record cleared in the 1996 death of his best friend, Mark Haverty,” the AP reports. “Favre had driven in front of a train in Pass Christian while drunk, pleaded guilty in 1997, and was sentenced to a year of house arrest followed by two years’ probation.” “

Barbour pardoned his brother.

As I recall, the Farve family had less than a stellar reputation in my home state. I don’t think dragging out that name is helping Cockrun much ...which is ok by me :)

Not much time left and IMO it is what it is at this point. I can’t see much being changed
in the last four days. But all these ploys show the desperation the Cochran campaign
believes their situation is.

For those of you who will not be voting in Mississippi, which is most of the posters when it comes to this race, Bret Farve is still very popular here.

I really don’t think any Ole Miss fans or Mis’sippi State fans are going to be swayed by some guy who played football at Hattiesburg High. Bring up someone from Millsaps, then we can talk.

I guess my “bias” is that I think even an idiot ought to know by now that Obama’s a disaster and that “half measures”, or less, like the kinds of things Thad Cochran supports are a joke and that he needs to be thrown out for the good of the country, to the extent that it’s still savable. So how can Bret Favre not know this?

Anyway, what a luck-out for Green Bay that they get an Aaron Rodgers to replace someone as good as Bret Favre was.
