Senate 2014 Field Looks to Favor GOP

Democratic Sen. Mark Warner (above) might face off against Gov. Bob McDonnell in 2014, which would be the third straight Virginia Senate race featuring two former governors.

On the Republican side, there is extensive chatter among Mississippi insiders that Sen. Thad Cochran could be considering retirement. He raised just $18,000 in the fourth quarter and had $326,000 on hand, though money is unlikely to be an issue should the Appropriations ranking member decide to run.

“There are a whole lot of Mississippians from both parties who put their heads on the pillow at night hoping Thad Cochran runs again in 2014,” John Keast, a former chief of staff to Sen. Roger Wicker (R-Miss.), said of the powerful appropriator.
