Skip to comments.Brett Favre Endorses Thad Cochran in US Chamber Ad
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).
Ive learned through football that strong leadership makes the difference between winning and losing. And when it comes to our states 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.

Brett Favre steps into politics
FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wisconsin interest ping list.
Even the tough guys are turning pansy.
Yesterday Terry Bradshaw was mewling about how the “R******s” need to change their offensive name.
Thad Cochran always deliversPork and Graft, just like he did during Katrina and Sandy, and the Banker Bailout, and the GM Bailout, and Obama Care, and (insert liberal spending cause here) ."
Brett Favre steps into politics
Another way of saying that he “steps into it”...
They’re the same age.
Concussion/brain damage BUMP!
Just another Boehn-head cry baby.
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).
Favre favors Pub-E old fart who did indecent things with farm fauna.
“How nice of Brett to pay Haley Barbour back for his pardon of Bretts sexual deviance legal problem.”
Elaborate please. I haven’t heard this particular one.
Neither know when it’s time to retire..
“Ive learned through football that strong leadership makes the difference between winning and losing...”, obviously not.
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.
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.
Has America not grown tired of sleazy politicians and their famous lackeys yet? Have we not learned these folks cannot and do not speak to our benefit?
Wonder how much they paid him to sell the Cochran brand, now that he’s not hawking Wranglers.
Head injury happens
Well, he is really dumb.
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."
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.
Wonder how many other strings Barbour plans to pull in the next week.
Did John Kerry make that flyer for Lambert Field?
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
Maybe it’s just throw it out there and see if it sticks.
Confirmed! ... NFL caused Brain damage!!
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 :)
never for his brain!...
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.
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.
You don’t mean Sarah Palin, or Rick Santorum surely.
SapMillians are more likely to vote for the dim.
Bradshaw is a democrat, so essentially a pansy.
Why would anyone care what that clown thinks?
...and I used to like Bret Favre.
Is he really kind of a goofball?
More of a wild child...(And that comes directly from one of the hostesses who used to work for him at his Steakhouse in Milwaukee.)
FArve is a moron..
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.
Watch out Thad, Brett could retire on you any time, and then unretire with somebody else.
