Childers Fundraising Up; Davis On Hold

Clarion Ledger - 1st District candidate putting off fundraising - Republican Greg Davis has taken a break from fundraising. The latest filings with the Federal Election Commission show Davis, the mayor of Southaven, has raised only $6,644 since he was defeated by Childers in a special election in May. Davis said he has put his fundraising on hold "to spend some time with the family and regroup." He also said he's changing campaign managers. Former manager Ted Prill has left the campaign, and his replacement will be announced soon, Davis said. Davis ended the reporting period with about $54,000 in cash on hand, close to the $55,000 he lent his campaign. But the mayor said he resumed fundraising efforts after July 4 and plans to stay in what he considers a competitive race. Childers reported raising about $169,000 since his May 13 election. Contributors included Delta Pride Catfish owner Bill Allen, who donated $500; the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians, who donated $1,000; and former Mississippi Attorney General Mike Moore.
