Republican primary challenger Chris McDaniel laughs after criticizing longtime U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss., by calling him a liberal and "one of the biggest spenders in Washington," while accusing him of being out of touch with Mississippi and its conservative roots, Thursday, May 15, 2014, at the Capitol in Jackson, Miss. McDaniel, a state senator from Ellisville, again challenged the incumbent to a debate. Cochran's campaign spokesman, Jordan Russell, says McDaniel's statements are "a sign of a desperate campaign," as both sides hunker down for a June 3 primary. (AP Photo/Rogelio V. Solis) less
