MS Senator Thad Cochran to Seek Re-Election

Six-term Senator is being challenged within own party.
Jackson -- Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran says he'll be running for re-election in 2014.

Cochran has been in the Senate since 1978.

He's the top GOP lawmaker on the Agriculture Committee and a senior member of the Appropriations panel.

Cochran is facing a challenger within his own party.

A tea party-backed candidate, state Sen. Chris McDaniel, announced in October that he'd seek the seat, regardless of what Cochran does.

The Republican Primary will be in June.
