Senator Thad Cochran is a true champion for MSU, and Bully Bloc is pleased to endorse him for re- election. Senator Cochran’s support has propelled MSU into a globally significant research institution from agriculture and wildlife research to automotive and defense research. Mississippi State is one of the elite agricultural research institutions in the world, largely thanks to Senator Thad Cochran.
Particularly, in the defense sector, Cochran’s support of the Raspet Flight Research lab has enabled MSU to attract the aerospace industry in the Golden Triangle, providing over 600 highly skilled jobs.
Senator Cochran said, “National defense is the number one priority of the federal government and Mississippi State is making significant contributions to ensuring we remain the world’s military superpower. Part of my job in Washington is to ensure Mississippi is treated fairly. We have a rich heritage in our state and have made tremendous progress in growing and modernizing our economy. With your support, I will continue to use my role in the Senate to help build Mississippi.”
Take a drive past the Thad Cochran Research, Technology, and Economic Development Park which currently houses 1,550 jobs. Simply put, Thad Cochran = job creation in Mississippi. We are pleased that MSU’s work with Senator Cochran provides high skilled high waged jobs for Mississippi which will benefit generations to come.
