The Dixiecrats Rise Again

The Dixiecrats Rise Again

We may be seeing the resurgence of what was thought to be an endangered species: the Southern white conservative Democrat. Travis Childers, a Democrat who won a congressional seat in a havily Republican district, is just one recent example. One of the Democrats' other 2008 special election victories came in Louisiana, where Don Cazayoux beat Republican Woody Jenkins by a slim margin. Cazayoux is also a pro-life, pro-gun conservative Democrat who was willing to go toe-to-toe with Jenkins on his culture war bona fides. Only a few years ago, a Southern white conservative who aspired to be elected to anything higher than a state legislative seat would have been well advised to leave the party of Jefferson for the party of Lincoln. Times have changed.
