Travis Childers Defeats Divisive Republican Campaign in Mississippi! Travis Childers wins Mississippi 1st District House Seat in Congress. Mr. Childers defeated Greg Davis, who is the Mayor of Southaven, Mississippi who ran a shameless campaign based on negativity. Mayor Davis' campaign ads consisted of clips attacking Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Senator Barack Obama, instead of ads targeting the bread and butter issues that turbulent economic times should command!
This one may be bad news for the Republicans this year. Mayor Davis pulled out all of the shots in bringing in Vice President Cheyney in only hours before the election. Mayor Davis one has to run on issues, and not on divisive tactics these days! The Karl Rove Moves don't work as well in troubled times do they?
