Cochran comments on fall primaries

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - It was a busy week in politics last week, with a couple of upsets taking place in primaries across the country. Senator Thad Cochran believes a common theme is emerging in the fall elections...dissatisfaction with lawmakers in Washington.

"This is an exciting election year and I think you can see already in some of the early primaries, upsets occurring, people want something new and different and a lot of folks are disenchanted with Washington and I think that's the message that's going to resonate with a lot of people," Cochran said.

Senator Cochran spoke during the grand opening Friday of "The Accelerator," a new business incubator at the University of Southern Mississippi.
