Holy smokes.  This should make the chocolate milk come spurting out of Tom Cole’s nose.

The DCCC just made a huge independent expenditure in Mississippi today, to the tune of $702,642.

The expenditures include $350K on an ad buys hitting GOP candidate Greg Davis, and another $350K on a media buy supporting Democrat Travis Childers.  They’ve also thrown in a grand on phonebanking.

This is really huge.  The DCCC has raised the stakes quite considerably.  In total, they’ve now spent $1.1 million on the race to replace Roger Wicker.  (With $950K or so of that coming after the April 22nd special primary.)  Will the cash-strapped NRCC follow suit?

They probably can’t afford not to.

Special election: 5/13.

PS: We are only $40 short of our $2300 goal for Travis Childers.  Will a hero emerge and put us over the top?  Remember, DavidNYC has pledged to match the first $250 donated today with his own contribution.  Let’s do this thing!
