The results for the Mississippi First District Special Election:
This is Northern Mississippi. The seat was vacated when Congressman Wicker became Senator Wicker when Trent Lott resigned.
This is a SOLID REPUBLICAN SEAT.
93% of Precincts Reporting
Travis W. Childers (D): 53% (54029)
Greg Davis (R): 47% (47361)
YES, this is one of those seats where they tried to Swiftboat the candidate by tying him to Obama and Rev. Wright.
First, Hastert's seat.
Then, the Louisiana seat a couple of weeks back.
This was it. The last ' argument' Hillpatine had against Obama to the SuperDelegates - his potential to be a ' drag' on downticket Democrats.
Childers WON a solid GOP seat in MISSISSIPPI.
Biggest election of the night.
