Childers Helped Himself Greatly with Healthcare Vote

The Desoto Times Tribune has an editorial saying that Childers’ vote against the Democrats healthcare reform bill just made the race to topple him a little more difficult. I agree. At this time, there is no reason to think that Childers is not the front-runner. If I was one of those groups in DC that rates Congressional races, I would probably say this is a lean Democrat (or slight lean). That certainly doesn’t mean Childers is a lock. Alan Nunnelee has done a lot of things behind-the-scene, but the real race hasn’t started.

And more than Childers vote on Saturday night, I think things like this help keep him above the fray and play in his favor. I am not sure if this is some sort of reverse psychology MoveOn is attempting, but they clearly don’t have a clue about MS-01. They knock Childers for his vote in support of the abortion restriction and his opposition to the final bill. They say conservatives were wrong for splitting the race is NY-23 and the media used that to portray a division in the GOP; how about we look at these kooks first?
