Cochran Baits Primary Hook With Catfish Fight

Bill Clark/CQ Roll Call File Photo
Cochran, who is facing a primary challenger this year, is using his seniority as a political tool, especially on a stalled farm bill that some believe he is holding up largely on his own.

He released a statement Tuesday urging Cochran to vote against the “disastrous” bipartisan omnibus bill crafted by the House and Senate Appropriations committees. Of course, if Cochran wins and the GOP takes back the majority, he would be in line for the Appropriations Committee chairmanship.
