Cochran says he will appear at the Fair

Sen. Thad Cochran will appear at the Neshoba County Fair on Thursday unless the U.S. Senate is still in session, Jordan Russell, his campaign communications director, said on Monday.

Cochran, fresh off a heated primary campaign, is scheduled to speak at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 31 under the pavilion on Founders Square.

“Unless Senate business keeps him away or something else changes, he will be there,” said Russell. “We are looking forward to the Fair.”

Cochran’s challenger, U.S. Rep. Travis Childers, the Democratic nominee for U. S. Senate, will speak before Cochran at 10:20 a.m. Childers is a former First District Congressman.
