Wapo’s The Fix – Childers continues to look vulnerable and Nunnelee appears to be the real deal

11. Mississippi’s 1st district: At the start of the 2010 election cycle, we ranked this seat and Alabama’s 2nd district side by side. Both southern seats tilt heavily toward Republicans but were won by conservative Democrats able to distance themselves from the national party. Alabama’s 2nd is no longer on the Line as Rep. Bobby Bright (D) continues to prove his staying power. But, Rep. Travis Childers (D) is among the most vulnerable Democratic incumbents in the country for two reasons: 1) State Sen. Alan Nunnelee appears to be the real deal and 2) Childers raised an eye-poppingly bad $110,000 in the final three months of last year. (Previous ranking: 11)
