Phil Kellam Takes Lead
In the latest poll, Virginia Beach Commissioner of Revenue has taken the lead in his race against Rep. Thelma Drake, R-Va., the Virginian-Pilot reports.
In a joint venture by RT Strategies and Constituent Dynamics, two polling companies, the Majority Watch polled voters in Virginia's 2nd Congressional Distirct between Oct. 24 and Oct. 26.
Fifty percent of respondents support Kellam and 45 percent support Drake.
The 2nd District is is one of the key battleground territories for Democrats in their struggle to win back the House. As late as August, Kellam led the race by 8 points, but Drake mounted a smear-laden comeback and had regained the lead.
With only seven days before Election Day, this is very good news for Kellam, good news for Democrats and very good news for Virginians.
Stay the course in Iraq and Pres. George Bush's disastrous administration policies will see their well-deserved collapse and demise when Americans throw Drake and her GOP cronies out in seven little days.
The new Reuters poll announced today shows Drake (R) with 51% and Kellam (D) with 43%. Drake leads going into the final week before Election Day by 8 points, well in excess of the margin of error of +/- 4.5%.Post a Comment
