But many said I was titling at windmills. People that said that King -- a fourteen year veteran of machine politics -- had a lock on his district that even an impressive challenger like legislator Dave Mejias couldn't overcome. Sadly, people said, we'd have to deal with Peter King bloviating on Fox news about Rush Limbaugh's issue du jour for years to come.
Guess again. From the Constituency Dynamics poll:
King (R) 48
Mejias (D) 46
King is under 50%, and Mejias is within the margin of error. Mejias is going to win this one. The asshole is going down.
One problem though -- King has a huge cash advantage. It's not an insurmountable problem, though, so long as Mejias raises enough money so that he can get his message out and so people know who he is.
That's why I'm going to ask you to contribute to Mejias's ActBlue fund. Please click HERE, and give Mejias some help. Even a $25 donation is enough to cover a neighborhood with bumper stickers and lawn signs, which will tell voters who aren't paying attention that King has a credible opponent. And these donations WILL make a difference. This race is on a knife's edge, and the mother of all upsets is imminent. The asshole is going down!
