Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) is planning to headline a National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) fundraiser for Sen. Thad Cochran (R-Miss.), the committee confirmed.
The fundraiser asks attendees to contribute $1,000 to $2,500 for individuals and $2,000 to $5,000 for PACs. And it’s certain to be a welcome development for Cochran as he enters into what’s expected to be an expensive three-week campaign before a runoff election against primary challenger Chris McDaniel.
The senator, however, looks to be getting a boost from his colleagues in Washington, many of whom have said they plan to again donate the maximum amount to his campaign. His fellow Mississippian, Sen. Roger Wicker (R), said he’s already making fundraising calls for the incumbent.
And that help will be pivotal to his chances of holding on to the seat.
While national conservative groups have offered their support for McDaniel’s bid, establishment Republicans have been somewhat more lukewarm about supporting Cochran, who enters the race the underdog. At least one major establishment spending group, American Crossroads, is sitting the race out.
