Childers – Nunnelee poses no unique challenges

U.S. Rep. Travis Childers, D-Miss., says he’s not on the campaign trail yet, but he was on the move in Columbus Thursday.

Childers, Mississippi’s First Congressional District representative, was at Microtek manufacturing Thursday at the invitation of Microtek Manager Beth Jolly, Ecolab Manager Jim Stroupe and corporate members of both companies to tour the facilities and meet with employees.

He said his team hasn’t begun focusing on November’s general election, even after Sen. Alan Nunnelee, R-Tupelo, won the Republican primary June 1.

“We have not kicked off our official campaign because we wanted (the Republicans) to get their primary out of the way. There will be due time to campaign,” said Childers.

Nunnelee, he said, poses no unique challenges as an opponent.
