Sen. Thad Cochran campaigns Wednesday in Vicksburg, highlighting Mississippi River-based jobs

VICKSBURG, Mississippi — Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran toured Golding Barge Line today in Vicksburg, highlighting his work in helping sustain thousands of jobs supported by the Mississippi River according to a campaign news release.

“The recently-enacted Water Resources Reform and Development Act helps grow Mississippi’s economy by keeping our rivers navigable,” Cochran said. “Water infrastructure projects like port dredging, waterway improvements, and flood control are critical for good-paying, Mississippi jobs. I voted for this bill so that companies, just like Golding Barge, can conduct business and do more for Mississippi.”

“The choice in this election is clear: Thad Cochran can do more for Mississippi. He always puts Mississippi first,” said Cochran campaign spokesman Jordan Russell.
