What Happened to Thad Cochran?

May 21, 2014

The Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund (TPPCF) announced its first electronic advertising buy for Mississippi. A 30-second TV spot titled “What Happened to Thad Cochran?” will run statewide on broadcast and cable TV between now and the June 3 primary election, and a 60-second radio version of the spot will also run statewide between now and the June 3 Republican primary election. 

“Mississippi voters have a choice in this election – between, on the one hand, a dynamic young Constitutional conservative in Chris McDaniel, or, on the other hand, a man who’s lost his Mississippi values in Thad Cochran,” TPPCF Chairman Jenny Beth Martin said. “Let the voters of Mississippi decide: Does a politician who runs up the debt, accepts an exemption from ObamaCare for himself and his staff, and votes with Harry Reid to make amnesty for illegal immigrants possible really represent Mississippi values?”

In the ads, viewers learn that Thad Cochran:

    *Voted to raise the debt ceiling no fewer than 24 times, putting every man, woman, and child in Mississippi in debt to the tune of $58,000;

    *Agreed to exempt himself and his Congressional staff from Obamacare; and

    *Voted with Harry Reid to make amnesty for illegal immigrants easier.

An exclusive sneak peek at the buy can be seen here.
