BIPAC Action Fund Endorsed Winner
Senator Thad Cochran won his re-election campaign against Travis W. Childers in the General Election.
Sen. Cochran was challenged in the primary by state Senator Chris McDaniel (R).
Senator Cochran scored 100% on BIPAC’s 112th Congress voting record and has a long history as a champion of free markets and working towards a pro-growth economic climate.
McDaniel was a Tea Party candidate backed by conservative groups such as Club for Growth and scored second lowest amongst State Senate Republicans on BIPEC’s legislative scorecard (the leading business coalition in Mississippi). BIPAC’s Mississippi state partner BIPEC, and several of our national association members supported BIPAC’s endorsement of Senator Cochran.
T. Cochran (i) 60.4% 370,208
