  •  I don't fabricate numbers (9+ / 0-)

    I'm reporting what was stated by a professional at an open meeting. It was not a statement from the Laesch campaign and it was not a dream I had--nor am I someone who would fabricate a story. I have better things to do with my time than make-up numbers. Either the press pays attention or not it doesn't matter to me, because what matters is taking place on the streets in the door-to-door work and on the phones--and in the hearts and minds of the voters in this district.

        treefieldssky is a great volunteer for John Laesch.  I've heard great things about this volunteer's commitment - but I think the poll is a bit off.  I like my numbers better.

        John Laesch - soooo much better than the other guy

          This seems kind of sketchy--"unconfirmed reports" and all--but for what it's worth, I got this from another blog (link below):

          IL-14. Fighting Dem Vet John Laesch is challenging Speaker of the House Denny Hastert. Hastert was stonewalling from day one and still maintains he did not know in advance despite statements by Reynolds (above) and Boehner (below) that he knew about Foley's predatory behavior for at least a year and did nothing. He is holding onto his House position and seat and has had Bush help him campaign, but for the first time in a good while he is actually campaigning. John Laesch is an aggressive campaigner and frequent contributor to diaries on Daily Kos. He has gone from an underdog and "Quixotic" candidate to a competitive challenger with polls showing most people believe Hastert knew earlier and engaged in a cover-up. This is a race that no one even thought was even a possible win. Help bring this unprincipled neocon Hastert down. This race has still not quite made the grade as a top tier race, but has the makings of such as the tide continues to turn in our favor. And John Laesch believes he can take down the speaker. Unconfirmed reports are that the Hastert campaign poll last weekend are that the race had closed to a 49% - 45% race.  The Laesch campaign has not been unable to confirm these numbers, but they do know that other indicators would suggest the gap has closed significantly.
