The Clarion-Ledger, 7/17/8

Republican Greg Davis, who is challenging Democratic Rep. Travis Childers in November’s election in the 1st District, 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. That election was to serve out the rest of the term after the seat’s former occupant, Republican Roger Wicker, was appointed to the Senate.

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.
