Thad Cochran

This May 14, 2014, file photo shows Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss., arriving for a vote at the Senate chamber on Capitol Hill in Washington. Six-term Republican Sen. Thad Cochran is trying to survive an intense tea party challenge in Mississippi by reaching out to union members and black voters _ two groups that traditionally support Democrats. But he risks a backlash from conservatives ready to support his opponent, state Sen. Chris McDaniel. (AP Photo, File)
