Could we have an upset brewing in North Mississippi??

Brownsox at Daily Kos says it could happen, even though he also says Southaven Mayor Greg Davis should be favored, Democrat Travis Childers is moving up:

Frankly, given the area's Republican nature, I think it's highly impressive that we're competitive in this district at all. The fact that this race is competitive speaks to Childers' strengths as a candidate, as well as to the popularity-or lack thereof-of his rather controversial opponent Greg Davis, who apparently has a somewhat unpleasant history with racist groups:


In Mississippi's Second District, Southaven Mayor Greg Davis
agreed in 2001 to accept a plaque as a gift from the Council of Conservative Citizens, thanking the town for flying the state flag in the midst of a controversy over the flag's Confederate emblems, according to press reports at the time.

There was a brief public outcry, during which Davis initially
defended accepting the gift from the CCC, which is well-known for espousing doctrines of "racial integrity." In the end though, Davis declined the gift. The episode involving the CCC hasn't emerged as an issue in the current campaign -- yet. But Davis won a seriously contested primary, and might just be vulnerable against Prentiss County clerk Travis Childers, the Dem challenger.

Stay tuned!

I have been saying this all along. Not that I'm an expert, but I grew up spending time with my relatives all across what is now District 1, from the Delta to the Hill Country.

The best thing that could have happened for the Democrats is Davis winning the Repub nomination narrowly, after a bitter campaign (which happened) and a non Desoto Democrat who is culturally traditional but economically populist (which Childer is).

His task is to unify the rural counties, which are not necessarily lockstep Republican, running against the guy from the well to do Memphis suburbs.

Childer's TV ads look good but I noticed this morning how the Republican attack machine is going after him, talking about how he supposedly ran a horrible nursing home, taking advantage of the poor old folks.

If he called me asking advice, I would tell Travis to run ads making Davis the issue, that Davis is busy slinging mud while Childers is talking issues. Then run an ad with the old folks at his nursing home talking about how great is is there and shaming Greg for bad mouthing poor Travis.

Not that I expect my phone to ring. However, I am delighted at the possibility of a Democratic victory.
