Seeing as Sen McConnell said he was “all-in” for Thad and organized a big fundraiser for him, it would be pretty surprising if he said Thad did something wrong.
Still mildly interesting that he has finally commented after the election.
And Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) told reporters at his weekly press conference on Tuesday that “anybody’s entitled” to contest the election.
“It’d be up to the people in Mississippi to determine the outcome,” he said. “I think it’s pretty clear who won. Senator Cochran ran a very successful runoff campaign and got the most votes. But anybody’s entitled to contest the outcome and that may well happen in Mississippi.”
No comment on whether or not he supports the race-baiting or the poor accounting. Don’t be afraid to reach out and ask his Press Secretary for answers.
And ask every GOP official #whyThad
“Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is putting the weight of his political organization behind embattled Sen. Thad Cochran.”
“senior staff told a packed room of more than 50 in-house and contract lobbyists that McConnell is “all-in” on the race,”
“Our friend Thad is in a battle in the coming weeks that will have a very real impact on our fight for the Majority. You have helped all of us in the past, and we need your help for him now,” the email signed by McConnell said. “It is critical that he has financial resources now, and we are going to make sure he has them.”
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a potential 2016 presidential contender, declined to support tea party critics of Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran’s efforts to mobilize non-GOP voters to win the Republican nomination.
