Hillary Clintonâ€™s big win in West Virginia wasnâ€™t the most significant election news Tuesday. Rather, it was Travis Childers (in photo) winning a special election for a U.S. House race in Mississippi. The Democratâ€™s victory in this very conservative, formerly safe GOP district could spell problems for Republicans in November. House Minority Leader John Boehner, R-Ohio, certainly thinks so.
â€œThe results in MS-01 should serve as a wake-up call to Republican candidates nationwide,â€ he said in a statement. â€œAs Iâ€™ve said before, this is a change election, and if we want Americans to vote for us we have to convince them that we can fix Washington. Our presidential nominee, Sen. McCain, is an agent of change; candidates who hope to succeed must show that theyâ€™re willing and able to join McCain in a leading movement for reform.â€
