The Steven Palazzo camp is up with their first campaign spot of the general election. The main theme centers on Rep. Gene Taylor, as he hits the incumbent pretty hard in a number of areas. What will be more interesting is Taylor’s response. I am sure there will be something, just don’t know what form it will be in.

Nunnelee calls for extending 01 and 03 tax cuts. Alan Nunnelee sent out a press release today where he, once again, called for an extension of the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts. But the presser also went after Rep. Travis Childers with some of the sharpest rhetoric we have seen from the Nunnelee camp:

“In his time in Congress, Congressman Travis Childers has voted for 14 tax increases that account for $654 billion over the next five years,” said Nunnelee. “He’s voted for over $2.5 trillion in new federal spending. North Mississippi voters want to know why our economy isn’t growing and why unemployment rates are so stubborn. The answer? People like Congressman Childers.”

North Mississippi has lost 22,000 jobs since Congressman Childers took office. “Congressman Childers continually tells us how much he supports job growth when he’s in Washington. With that kind of track record, North Mississippians would be better off if he came home,” added Nunnelee. “North Mississippians would gladly eliminate Congressman Childers’ job to save 22,000.”

Macry claims Palin coming to MS-02. In a WLBT story on a Tea Party event from last weekend in Byram, Second District Republican hopeful Bill Marcy said this about the former Alaska governor and Vice-Presidential candidate: “We have a 95%, maybe 96% chance of getting Sarah Palin here with us. We’re picking up support all over.”

That would be quite a coup if that actually happened, although I am not sure how popular Palin is in the Second District where her ticket (with John McCain) won about 34 percent of the vote.
