Dems Pick up Republican Seat in Mississippi

In a special election, Democratic Travis Childers won over Republican Greg Davis in MS-1. Looks like Vice President Dick Cheney's visit to the Magnolia State did little for Davis.

Now here's some food for thought: When Congress passed bankruptcy reform, Howling Latina predicted GOPers would soon start losing elections in the South.

At the time, data revealed states in the South led the Union in bankruptcies; and sure enough, recent Dem pick-ups in Texas, Mississippi, North Carolina and Florida might be directly attributable to this onerous consumer bill; hopefully, the next Congress will amend it.
