Hey, Mississippi: Brett Favre wants you to vote for Sen. Thad Cochran

When he's not hawking Wrangler jeans or Remington rifles, Brett Favre is reminiscing about his professional football days, which taught him that whether a team wins or loses depends on its leader.

Hey, that's kind of like politics. And a new fourth-quarter ad from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce features Brett Favre endorsing Sen. Thad Cochran accordingly as the best leader in Mississippi's Senate race.

"When it comes to our state's future, trust me," the Mississippi native says. "Mississippi can win and win big with Thad Cochran."

Cochran faces Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel in the June 24 election, but you can watch the Gunslinger try to sway your vote in the video below. --Sarah Eberspacher
