Mississippi Political Elites Can’t Believe Voters Turning Against ‘King of Pork’ Cochran

The New York Times has an interesting piece this morning on the runoff election between Sen. Thad Cochran and his Republican primary challenger, Chris McDaniel.

The piece reflects a general amazement at the way that citizens of Mississippi are voting for McDaniel in spite of all the federal spending that Cochran has brought to the district.

One liberal professor in particular is perplexed by the concept.

“It’s the strangest thing I’ve ever seen,” Professor Marty Wiseman tells the Times. “It defies logic or reason for somebody to not only run on cutting off the supply of federal money to Mississippi, but to actually be winning the race.”

Mississippi residents quoted in the story share a common theme: Washington, D.C. stinks and Cochran is part of the problem.
