Progressive Democrat, State Senator Jim Wilson, has released a polling memo from Celinda Lake showing that a well-financed campaign exposing Dan Boren's anti-middle class and working class voting record puts him in a tough primary fight.

Swing State Project has a little blurb on it all. They link to a copy of the polling memo, and link to Boren's absurdly right wing hit job of a TV ad against Jim Wilson now running on the airwaves in eastern Oklahoma.

Clearly Boren starts out with a big lead, but any safe incumbent's numbers would not fold like a deck of cards after an informed ballot. Boren's support is very soft. And he knows he is vulnerable. Look no farther to his attack ad on Wilson just 2 weeks after Wilson announces his primary challenge.

To think that progressive hero Mike Synar held this seat just 16 years ago, and now Dan Boren holds it as essentially the closest thing you can find in the lower 48 to a "democratic" Jim Inhofe or Tom Coburn.

Here is the link to the swing state run down, scroll down to OK-2:

If you can spare $10 or $20, Jim Wilson could use it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
