Keeping their Silence

Democratic tsunami heading to Mississippi

By Bobby Moak, Chairman, Mississippi Democratic Party

Yesterday, we asked for Senator Cochran's position on the accusations against Roy Moore. This morning we read his response joining 13 other Republican senators calling for Moore to drop out of the race.  Cochran went on to say "his (Moore's) candidacy may not be in the best interest of his state or the U. S. Senate." 

We thank Senator Cochran for listening, standing with his leadership and having the political courage to condemn sexual assault.

Our other Senator Roger Wicker, continues to stand by his earlier comments, after joining Roy Moore at a fundraiser in Washington, DC by saying, "these sexual charges against Moore were from a long time ago...."
