JACKSON, Mississippi — NFL legend Brett Favre has endorsed the re-election of Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS), cutting a television ad for the six-term incumbent days ahead of a runoff election against Tea Party-backed state senator Chris McDaniel.“I’ve learned through football that strong leadership makes the difference between winning and losing. And when it comes to our state’s future, trust me: Mississippi can win — and win big with Thad Cochran as our strong voice in Washington,” Favre says in the ad. “Thad Cochran always delivers, just like he did during Katrina.”
But a drunk-driving accident involving Favre's brother and the death of one of their friends raises questions about whether the unusual endorsement is political payback to former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour, who is strongly backing Cochran.
“Here I am in my fairy-tale world playing football while Scott sits in prison, and I have done more bad things than he's ever dreamed of,” he told Playboy. “I would give up my ring in a heartbeat to trade places with my brother.”
In 2012, on his last day in office, former Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour pardoned Scott Favre—clearing his record entirely.
Now Brett Favre is endorsing Cochran at the last minute in the runoff campaign while Barbour's political machine works overtime to help Cochran win.
Sorry Brett, your sextin heart is not swayin me...to vote for Cochran that is...even if I could vote in this race. But hey, maybe the democrats can make up the difference and the status quo can continue on it's death march into the black hole that is made up of politicians, lobbysists, & bureaucrats.
Thanks for nothin sextin cheatin lyin Brett Farve...you should have quit while you were ahead.
