The AP projects Democrat Travis Childers as winner of the special election to fill the vacancy in Mississippi's 1st Congressional District. (Update: More at ABC News and WSJ.)
Make no mistake: we are witnessing a massive tectonic shift in electoral politics at the national level, as the third staunchly Republican congressional district in the last few months flips to "blue" as the result of a special election. Republican flop sweat is flowing like cheap beer as their leaders and patrons witness perhaps the most massive meltdown in the party's history.
MORE UPDATE: Progressive candidate Scott Kleeb wins Nebraska's Democratic Senate Primary.
