The Dems have won another one, y'allThe newest Democratic Congressman, Travis Childers of Mississippi: Dark Lord Cheney will be unhappy
This one was the special election in Mississippi's 1st Congressional District, which has been Republican, won in a landslide by Democrat Travis Childers! The Jackson Clarion-Ledger reports in Democrat wins congressional race by Natalie Chandler 05/14/08:
With 100 percent of precincts reporting, Childers had 57,276 votes to Davis' 49,314, based on unofficial returns. [Childers 54%, Davis 46%]This is a good reminder of why the Dems need to be seriously contesting every Senate and Congressional race in "red" states like Mississippi. Because not everyone is "red" there. At the very least, it forces the Republicans to spend money there rather than elsewhere. And it builds the party for moments like this.
And an added sweetner: "GOP Vice President Dick Cheney visited the county Monday in support of Davis." Good on Natalie Chandler for that construction: "GOP Vice President".
