UPDATE 5/9: Our friend Mr. Turnbow reports that GOP officials are learning of internal polls from the Greg Davis campaign that shows him losing 5-10 points to Travis Childers IN THE LAST WEEK!
Please help Travis, this is an UNBELIEVABLE pick up opportunity, this is an R+10 DISTRICT!!!
The wonderful Matt Stoller at OpenLeft notes that MS-01, the CD immediately to our south, is an R+10 District. However, that didn't stop the voters of North Mississippi from voting by 49% for Democrat Travis Childers, who leads going into the May 13 runoff with Republican (and Southaven Mayor) Greg Davis.
Here are the results from MS-01:
MS-01 (Wicker-Open) Precincts Reporting - 99% 462 of 462
Greg Davis (R) - 46%
Travis Childers (D) - 49%
Steve Holland (D) - 1%
Glenn McCullough (R) - 1%
I love it, and want more.
Pennsylvania? Who cares? For a 10-point victory, she only won THREE more delegates at last count. You need only look below to see what it would take for her to win the nomination. Her campaign is deader than a week-old-fish, and smells about the same at this point.
Let's celebrate REAL victory tonight, and remember to help out Childers if you have time, he's already running runoff ads on the 10 PM local news here. Heh.
Oh, and one last thing; here's Matt's closing comment:
No one likes Republicans, even in R+10 districts.
