Embattled GOP Sen. Cochran says he was unaware of Cantor’s loss
Just another log on the pile of evidence that this guy is out of touch and needs to be sent home.
Check it out:
Two days after Eric Cantor’s primary loss received national attention, Mississippi GOP Sen. Thad Cochran — who’s caught in a tight primary race of his own — claimed he had no idea what happened in Virginia.
The 36-year incumbent senator is about to face off against Tea Party-backed Chris McDaniel in a run-off election on June 24.
In a sit-down interview with Fox News on Thursday, Cochran was asked if the Virginia race concerns him, considering his own contest.
“I don’t know what you’re talking about — what happened in Virginia?” the senator said.
After being told Cantor had just lost his seat, he said: “Well, I haven’t really followed that campaign very closely at all.”
The incumbent senator, apparently without trace of sarcasm, continued to insist he hadn’t followed that race and had no comment.
