WASHINGTON (CNN) – Presidential candidate Fred Thompson, R-Tennessee, picked up an endorsement Thursday from Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Mississippi.
Sen. Cochran’s endorsement comes a little over a week after Thompson formally announced his candidacy for president.
“Thompson is the candidate best able to win the general election in 2008 and carry our conservative values all the way to the White House,” said Cochran in a statement released by the Thompson campaign.
Cochran is serving his fifth term in the U.S. Senate.
