The Down-Ballot Effect
When was the last time you heard of a Democrat in the Deep South feeling encouraged because of the top of the party's national ticket? ...
Montgomery Mayor Bobby Bright confirms reports that he is planning to run for Congress from Alabama's 2nd District.
Bright is a Democrat and the 2nd is heavily Republican but he has become convinced that Obama's strong showing in primary voting there -- the district is 29 percent African-American -- will help his cause.
Bright's campaign recently released a polling memo suggesting that a huge show of support from the African-American community could "add 3 to 5 points" to his margins against leading Republican opponents.
