Human Events - Outing Travis Childers’s Secret Affair With Barack Obama - Davis has now resorted to tactics which have Childers crying foul. In this heavily Republican, conservative district, Davis dared to out Childers. Davis showed all the support Childers has gotten behind the scenes from the Obama campaign.
Team Obama pitched Travis Childers hard. The campaign encouraged its supporters to contribute to Childers and organized its supporters on the ground into a grassroots effort for Childers. And active support by Barack Obama is pretty close to the kiss of death in a district like Mississippi One. The only thing Childers could do was run to the media and cry foul -- he denied there was ever an endorsement and denied receiving any help from the campaign.
The Davis campaign was all too happy to respond showing screenshots from the Obama campaign encouraging support for Childers and showing emails from the Obama campaign supporting Childers.
Faced with Davis’s evidence, Childers had to deny his relationship with Obama a second time via commercials. RedState noted the irony that Childers is taking thousands of dollars from far left Obama activists to run television ads distancing himself from Obama. As Moe Lane noted, someone needs to get a rooster on standby for Childers’s third denial.
Greg Davis has done a valuable service for the people of Mississippi in showing Childers’s ties to the Obama campaign, and he has done the nation a valuable service showing just how fast a lot of Democrats will run hurriedly in the opposite direction from Obama should he be the nominee.
