With longtime Mississippi Sen. Thad Cochran facing what is arguably the fiercest primary challenge of his career in the form of tea party-backed state Sen. Chris McDaniel, Republican Party chairman Joe Nosef is playing a balancing act at the podium.
In an appearance at the McComb Exchange Club Thursday, Nosef spoke no ill words about Cochran or McDaniel in the hotly contested race.
The election is being billed in the national press as one of several contests pitting upstart tea party candidates against incumbents who have long sat comfortably in the ranks of the Republican establishment.

Chairman Joe Nosef Responds to the President’s State of the Union Address
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
January 28, 2014
MSGOP Chairman Joe Nosef:
“Tonight, Americans heard a clear vision from this President – a vision that is based on the following three Democrat party beliefs: 1) taxes are too low 2) government is too small and 3) our country can’t do any better than we are doing right now.
This shows just how out of touch the President and the Democrat Party are with the country and Mississippi. President Obama’s administration has hurt hardworking Americans. The President fails to recognize that the federal government cannot solve every problem this country faces. The Republican Party remains committed to building a stronger, more competitive economy that puts this country back on the right track. We will do that without government centered approaches but instead policies that rely on the resolve and exceptionalism of the American people.”
