Democratic incumbents Travis Childers and Gene Taylor are in tight races with Republicans who’ve tried to tie them to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of California.

Childers has represented the northern 1st District since 2008. He’s being challenged by the GOP’s Alan Nunnelee.

Democratic Rep. Bennie Thompson in the Delta-to-Jackson 2nd District and Republican Rep. Gregg Harper in the central 3rd District are facing opponents with significantly smaller campaign budgets.
