The Mississippi congressional race deserves another look. Travis Childers, the Democratic candidate there, won a stunning victory. This was the third straight win in a so-called Republican district, and it was most impressive. There is no way for the GOP to spin this loss into anything other than a total rejection of the Bush-Cheney-Rove Administration. The Republicans brought the big guns, including Vice-President Dick Cheney and their shadow groups, into the Magnolia State. The results there speak for themselves. Even Cheney, with all of his Halliburton-backed Big Oil money, is no match for the nationwide grassroots movement for change that is sweeping the nation.
The Mississippi victory followed the big win in the race mentioned above for Louisiana’s Sixth District, a seat that the Republicans have held for the past three decades. There had been an earlier race in Illinois’ Fourteenth District for the seat held by the former Republican House Speaker Dennis Hastert for more than 20 years. It was won by Democratic Congressman Bill Foster. I believe the tide has turned and that there will be a clean sweep in the Fall for Democrats.
