Democrats Land Top Recruit In Mississippi

Former Rep. Travis Childers (D-MS) "will be announcing he's running for the Senate, according to two sources familiar with his decision, giving Democrats a chance to capitalize on the Republican division within the state," National Journal reports.

"Childers, a Blue Dog Democrat, held a solidly-Republican House seat from 2008 to 2010, proving his ability to win over conservative voters despite his Democratic affiliation. Democrats are hoping that conservative state senator Chris McDaniel topples longtime Sen. Thad Cochran (R-MS) in a June primary - a development they believe will make the race highly competitive."
