Sen. John McCain is going to hit the campaign trail with embattled Sen. Thad Cochran, as the six-term Mississippi senator hits the homestretch of his GOP primary runoff with state Sen. Chris McDaniel. McCain is the latest prominent Republican figure to lend his support to Cochran, who has been attacked by McDaniel as out of touch and not sufficiently conservative. McDaniel is also a strong supporter of term limits, and the image of a sitting U.S. senator vying for a seventh term getting help from a senator who is in his fifth term probably won’t be lost on McDaniel supporters.
