"RELEASE: Democratic nominee for US Senate release on Republican runoff: Booneville, Miss.
"Tonight, Travis Childers issued the following statement
on the results of the Republican Senate runoff in Mississippi.
"One thing is clear tonight: Senator Cochran does not have the
confidence of his state, let alone his own party. The majority of
Republicans voted for change in Washington. And if we are going to
change Washington, we will need to change who we send to Washington.
"The same people will give us the same results of gridlock, and elected
officials will continue fighting each other rather than fighting for
Mississippians. It is time for a change, and I believe I can best
represent the future of Mississippi in the United States Senate.
"I look forward to a spirited debate with Senator Cochran on the many
issues facing Mississippi. And I am calling for Senator Cochran to join
me in a series of debates beginning next month, so voters can clearly
see the differences."" via Free Rep.
