Race Analysis

10/27/10 -- Travis Childers shocked the political world with his special election victory in this heavily Republican district, and managed to hold on in November of 2008.  But this is a very different year, and even though Childers is one of the most conservative Democrats in the House, in this year it might not be enough to hold on.
