Thad Cochran Endorses Mitt Romney

Not too long ago, it was announced that Sen. Thad Cochran will be supporting former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, as he did in 2008:

MITT ROMNEY ANNOUNCES SUPPORT OF SENATOR THAD COCHRAN

Boston, MA – Mitt Romney today announced the support of Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran.

“I am pleased to have the support of Thad Cochran,” said Mitt Romney. “He understands that Mississippi voters are looking for someone who will bring jobs back to this country. He is a committed public servant, and I am grateful to have him stand with me in my campaign.”

Announcing his support, Senator Thad Cochran said, “Our country cannot afford another four years of President Obama’s policies. Mitt Romney has the pro-growth message and the unmatched experience that will be required to improve our economy. I am proud to support him.”

According to polling from several months ago, Romney simply isn’t very popular in Mississippi. That polling included Haley Barbour and/ or Mike Huckabee, who were the top choices, but this was before Rick Perry. Should his campaign still be active by the time the Mississippi primary comes along, I imagine the Texas governor will carry the state unless something dramatic happens.
