Roger Wicker (R-MS) – Nothing from this meeting, but here is a different report on the issue.

Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) – Refused to explain why she was financially supporting Cochran. Contact her here or here and ask #whyThad

Rob Portman (R-OH) – “I am [supporting Cochran]. I’m the vice chair of the NRSC. We are supporting all our incumbents, including Sen. Cochran.”

When asked if he agrees with Cochran’s claim that McDaniel is an “extremist” who would be “dangerous” if elected, Portman demurred. “I didn’t see what he said, so I don’t want to comment on it,” Portman said. “But Thad’s a friend and he’s a colleague and he’s a good conservative and he’s been great for Mississippi.”

Lamar Alexander (R-TN) – “Because he’s one of the finest senators we have in the United States Senate.”

Orrin Hatch (R-UT) – No comment available for this but has commented in other forums.
