Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre has been instrumental in trying to help Sen. Thad Cochran remain in Congress.

Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre has been instrumental in trying to help Sen. Thad Cochran remain in Congress. 

TheWire.com's Abby Olheiser reported on June 18 that Favre is featured in a U.S. Chamber of Commerce advertisement which endorses Cochran: 

"How worried are longtime Senator Thad Cochran's supporters about his re-election chances? Well, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce released a fourth-quarter ad on Wednesday featuring an endorsement of the incumbent from Brett Favre, as Politico reported. 

"Favre, a Mississippi native, tells viewers he believes 'Thad Cochran always delivers, just like he did during Katrina.'

"Cochran came in second earlier this month in the first round of GOP primaries for his Senate seat. His Tea Party challenger Chris McDaniel will have a second chance to take the nomination from the incumbent on Tuesday, during a run-off election for the seat.

"Although Mississippi has benefitted from Cochran's knack for bringing federal dollars into the state, McDaniel has been running a campaign that taps into generalized conservative outrage about the Obama presidency.

"The New York Times spoke to to Mississippi voters this week who believed McDaniel would do a better job representing their values, something they prioritized above federal money for major projects. In other news, bad news for Cochran. 

"If voters select McDaniel over Cochran next week, it would be a big change for the state, which has a long history of electing officials who know how to take money from D.C. and funnel it back home. 

"Favre's ad seems to be an attempt to remind voters of the benefits of that style of congressman: 'I've learned through football that strong leadership makes the difference between winning and losing,' the former Green Bay quarterback says, adding, 'when it comes to our state's future, trust me: Mississippi can win big and win big with Thad Cochran.'"

Six days earlier, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reported Favre has been touching base with Packers management on his Lambeau Field appearance sometime during the 2014 NFL season: 

"In the long-running saga of when Brett Favre will return to Green Bay for an appearance at Lambeau Field, the former Packers quarterback advanced the story incrementally on Thursday. 

"In an interview on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Favre confirmed what team president Mark Murphy said in April -- that he and the Packers tried to set up a date for which he would return for a game last season and hope that it actually takes place this season. 

"Favre said he has been in contact with Murphy and general manager Ted Thompson, the man who traded away Favre to the New York Jets in 2008 after Favre unretired.

"'We have had communciation,' Favre said. 'Not that it's really anybody else's business with all due respect. I have a tremendous amount of respect for Green Bay, and it's not about me. It's not necessarily about them.

"It's about the fans and respect. When the time is right. They're going to have things to do. They have a season to play. They have to get ready, and I don't want to be a distraction for them.'

 

"Favre, who played 16 seasons for the Packers before one with the Jets and two with the rival Minnesota Vikings, described his relationship with the Packers as 'much better.'" 

Favre played in the NFL from 1991-2010 for the Atlanta Falcons, Green Bay Packers, New York Jets and Minnesota Vikings. He amassed 71,838 passing yards, 508 touchdowns and 336 interceptions on an 86.0 passer rating, per ESPN stats
