    Her election is truly a toss up. Grijalva is in some trouble but will still almost certainly win.

    •  Last I saw she was a ways up but I think that was (2+ / 0-)

      The adjective that applies to Christine O'Donnell is not "DiVinyl".

      •  Current polling has her up by 2 points, I think (2+ / 0-)

        Sorry I don't have time to look up the article but I read a poll recently where Kelly was within two points... the election could go either way. I'm seeing signs literally all over town attacking Giffords: "Giffords gave Wall Street $500 Billion of Your Money!" "Giffords forced Obamacare on You!" and so on... some of them based on her actual votes, some of them completely made up BS as far as I know and I follow most political news pretty closely... but it doesn't seem to matter. On every corner in my part of town and work and as we have been out and about, these medium sized, plain blue block letters on white cardboard signs are everywhere. I have never seen anything like this kind of attack on her before. I'm afraid it might be working. There are very few comparable signs making attacks on Kelly. People are easily manipulated... these is going to be a tough election for her. I'm holding my breath in fear of Kelly winning the seat.
