Video: Childers turns the hounds loose on Cochran in race across Mississippi

Democratic Senate candidate Travis Childers has picked up where GOP challenger Chris McDaniel left off.

Childers, a former congressman, Monday went up with a YouTube ad chronicling the imaginary hunt for Sen. Thad Cochran.

McDaniel repeatedly challenged Cochran to debate but the long-serving senator refused. McDaniel used it for ad fodder too.

But McDaniel didn't have bloodhounds. Yes. Bloodhounds. 

Could an ad be more Mississippi?

For the record: Cochran and Childers will meet in the Nov. 4 general election unless an election challenge by McDaniel, apparently headed to the state Supreme Court, is successful.
