Travis Childers Keeps His Word to North Mississippi

First TV ad highlights Travis’s record of doing what he said he would do

Booneville, MS – Today, Childers for Congress aired its first television advertisement for Travis Childers’s 2010 reelection campaign. The ad, entitled “2008,” highlights Travis’s record of keeping his word to the people of North Mississippi and serving his first term in Congress doing what he said he would do in his 2008 campaign.

The 60-second ad, which aired district-wide, underscores Travis’s service as an independent voice for North Mississippi who has worked with both parties to create jobs, fight out-of-control spending, and stand up for North Mississippi’s pro-life and pro-gun values.
