(CNN) – GOP Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi had already commented about Eric Cantor's stunning primary loss earlier this week. So why did he appear unaware of the outcome when asked about it on Thursday?
"I don't know what you're talking about," the six-term senator said in an interview with Fox News, when asked about the race. "What happened in Virginia?"
A spokesman for Cochran said the senator "had been asked that question repeatedly and answered it repeatedly."
