Thad Cochran wins Democratic primary in Mississippi

25 Jun

JACKSON–building on his years of progressive leadership and sterling civil-rights track record, Thad Cochran (D–MS) today won a come-from-behind victory in the Democratic Mississippi Senate primary.

“Today is a victory for everyone who believes in social justice,” said Cochran in his victory speech. “I will never rest until I have delivered progressive taxation, environmental justice, and universal health care to the people of Mississippi, and to all Americans.”

Cochran’s challenger, Chris McDaniel, gave a gracious concession speech in which he alleged massive fraud and urged his followers to hide in the hills and dynamite government buildings.
