Washington, DC - Congressman Steven Palazzo (MS-4) issued the following statement on Mississippi Senator Thad Cochran after he announced his resignation.

"I am thankful that I have been able to work alongside Senator Cochran over the last eight years. The state of Mississippi is fortunate to have a devoted leader like Thad Cochran serving as our Senator. His dedication to making a difference, not only for the state of Mississippi, but the entire nation will be remembered forever. He is someone that has made a permanent impact on our country. 

"Through his service in the Navy and as a leader in Congress over the last 40 years, he has served as an expert decision maker who accomplished major victories during his tenure. I will certainly miss working with Senator Cochran, but I know that serving in Congress is only a chapter in our lives. While Senator Cochran will return to Mississippi, his legacy will reign in the halls of Congress forever. I wish my friend good health and a relaxing retirement with your family. Thank you, Senator Cochran for your leadership for Mississippi and the United States."
