Cochran's winning speech: This is your victory

JACKSON, MS (WDAM) -

After winning the GOP Republican primary runoff, Cochran thanked his supporters from his campaign party in Rankin County.

Cochran maintained the lead in the runoff a majority of the night with 51 percent of the vote. McDaniel fell short by 6,395 votes. 

Cochran will face Travis Childers in the general election in November. 

If Cochran wins the general election, he will serve his seventh consecutive term in the Senate.
