Here's what's new in our Orange to Blue races.
CA-10: The SIEU announced today that it's going to be airing two 60-second Spanish language radio ads for Democrat Jose Hernandez. You can listen to the ads here. Which is good, because "two leading Republican groups, American Action Network and the Congressional Leadership Fund, are teaming up to spend nearly $13.5 million in House battles across the country." And one of the members they're defending is Hernandez's opponent, Rep. Jeff Denham.
MN-08: This is another race those two groups are investing in, trying to keep GOP Rep. Chip Cravaack safe. Earlier, David Nir looked at what appears to be new polling from Global Strategy Group for the DCCC: "GSG's latest numbers have GOP Rep. Chip Cravaack tied with Democrat Rick Nolan at 42 apiece, suggesting both candidates have had their numbers driven down since that August poll, when Nolan led 45-44. There are no presidential toplines, but Dems lead on the generic congressional ballot, 43-40, and Sen. Amy Klobuchar is destroying Republican Kurt Bills, 58-31." Klobuchar reportedly has a kick-ass ground team that is carrying Nolan along.
NH-01: Well, this is a novel fundraising approach.
No comment from the
Annie Kuster Carol Shea-Porter campaign on this odd appeal from Guinta.
MA-Sen: And the lastest poll from MassINC's for WBUR) now has GOP Sen. Scott Brown up 48-45 over Elizabeth Warren. But just a week earlier, they had Warren up 49-45, and scarcely two weeks before that, they found Warren leading 47-42. We've got to see more polling in this one before panicking, but it sure ain't over.Daily Kos for Marriage Equality:
Washington. Andy Towle has a good write-up on the latest out of Washington state. The happy news: "63 priests with more than 800 combined years of service to the church are coming out in support of marriage equality on Thursday." The not so happy news: "NOM-backed group Preserve Marriage Washington just injected $650,000 into the battle there."
