Democrat Travis Childers wins a U.S. House seat in Mississippi's deeply Republican 1st Congressional District. I believe they voted by over 60% for Bush in 2000 and 2004.

Childers defeated Republican Greg Davis in a special election to fill the final few months of a two-year term in Congress. The seat was vacated when Roger Wicker was appointed to the U.S. Senate after Trent Lott resigned. The win is notable because like the recent special election in Louisiana, Republicans tried to link the Democratic candidate Childers to Obama, once again it failed.

I wouldn't want to be a Republican this Nov.
