As you may know, Faisal Shahzad, a 30-year-old Pakistan-born resident of Bridgeport, Connecticut, who had become a U.S. citizen in 2009, has been charged with terrorism and attempted use of a weapon of mass destruction over the May 1 car bombing attempt in Times Square. A bill that is being discussed in Congress proposes that all Americans affiliated with a foreign terrorist group be stripped of their U.S. citizenship.

Gov. Haley R. Barbour called state Rep. Scott Bounds a “reliable conservative who votes very much in line with the views of people that he represents” as he welcomed the Democrat from Philadelphia to the Republican Party on Monday at a press conference in Jackson.
As the switch was formally announced at Republican Party headquarters downtown, Bounds was flanked by his family – including his father Buck, a former Democrat state representative – and a throng of elected Republican officials such as the lieutenant governor and U.S. Rep. Gregg Harper.
Both parties are pouring in money and dispatching heavy hitters in advance of a May 18 special election in western Pennsylvania, a race that could provide important signals about the outcome of the November elections.
