Former Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour released the following statement regarding his work to re-elect U.S. Senator Thad Cochran:

“In this election, the only jobs I care about are at Ingalls Shipyard, Meridian Naval Air Station, Stennis Space Center, Army Corps of Engineers at Vicksburg, Columbus Air Force Base, Ole Miss, State, USM, JSU, and every other job in Mississippi education threatened by Chris McDaniel’s goal of eliminating federal funding for education.”
