Democrats win ANOTHER special election

We are 3 for 3 baby. Tonight we won in the reddest of red states, Mississippi - in a district that voted for Bush in '04 by more than 60%.

And yes, Hillary had a blow out today in West Virginia. However Obama will still be our nominee.

Update: DCCC Chairman Chris Van Hollen:

For the first time in more than 30 years the Democratic Party has picked up three Republican seats in special elections in one cycle. Republicans and their outside groups pulled out all the stops in an attempt to nationalize a congressional race and distract voters away from their own candidates' failure to stand up for middle class families. The NRCC broke the bank and spent nearly 20 percent of their cash on hand on a ruby red district. Travis's victory proves that a Democrat who puts the economy, health care, and homegrown values front and center can win anywhere in America. After three consecutive Special Election defeats in districts President Bush twice won easily, it is abundantly clear the American people have turned their back and shut the door on the special interest driven agenda of the Republican Party. There is no district that is safe for Republican candidates because President Bush's failed policies have hurt every community in America.
