Saving a Seat for You, Travis

No scoop here, this was already posted over on both Swing State Project and Cotton Mouth, but I wanted to take a minute to chime in too.

According to The Politico, the Democratic House leadership have a seat waiting for Travis Childers on the Agriculture Committee when he wins the MS-01 seat this coming Tuesday. That's great news for Mississippians - who most definitely need a voice in that Committee - and for Childers, of course.

On the other side of that coin, not so much. It's just more bad news for Greg Davis.

Should Davis somehow overcome his soaring negatives (and from what I can tell, there's a whole lot of folks who are just sick to death of him at this point...even more than than there were before Travis beat him the last time, in fact) and pull out a win on Tuesday, he'll be at the bottom of the seniority ladder of a minority party.

That means no committee seats for him.

Or for us. Which would suck.

If anyone needed another reason to choose the good guy over the puppet, I'd say this should seal the deal. Especially the many rural Mississippians who are directly impacted by the Ag Comm.

But then again, there's not a whole of them in the Memphis suburbs, are there?
