Travis Childers On Tea Parties
In a Commercial Appeal article preceding the various Tea Party events that took place throughout the state on April 15, Tea Party organizer Bill Ford said that Rep. Travis Childers is routinely invited to the events but his office never responds.
Dana Edelstein, his communications director, did speak with the Commercial Appeal and said this about those who are active in the Tea Party movement in some way, shape or form: “Congressman Childers welcomes the voices of the Tea Party and its members. He hopes they have a chance to look at his record, because they would see that he has been a fierce advocate of tax cuts for hard-working Mississippians.”
Pretty savvy response, in my opinion. Childers decided not to take a shot at the group (who probably doesn’t think to high of the Congressman), but rather continue the tax cuts strategy you will probably hear a lot more of.
