FreedomWorks for America President: The NRSC Should Focus on Defeating Democrats

In response to the National Republican Senatorial Committee’s (NRSC) pledge to “continue to fully support Thad Cochran” in the Mississippi GOP runoff, FreedomWorks for America President Matt Kibbe called on the national party organization to encourage Senator Thad Cochran to concede.

Kibbe commented:

“If the NRSC’s mission is for the Republican Party to win in November, they should encourage Thad Cochran to concede. Last night’s primary numbers proved that Mississippians want new leadership in the Senate. Why don’t we all focus our resources on defeating Democrats in November?”

In a tweet last November, NRSC strategist Brad Dayspring assured his followers that “Our job is to win a GOP majority.” It is now a possibility that Thad Cochran could put the Republican-held Senate seat at risk come November.
