JACKSON, Miss. - Longtime U.S. Senator Thad Cochran has defeated State Senator Chris McDaniel in the June 24, 2014 runoff election.

Cochran is seeking a seventh term as a U.S. Senator.

Cochran was supported by the state's GOP establishment and McDaniel was backed by tea party groups.

The June 3rd primary election was pushed to a runoff after the race was too close to call. Cochran will have to run against Democratic nominee Travis Childers.

The general election is Nov. 4
