Dem Opponent Leads Inspirational Republican... in Utah
The Daily Caller's Evie Fordham reports:
Utah Republican Rep. Mia Love’s Democratic opponent has a 6-point lead on her according to a late October poll that’s the first to show Democrat Ben McAdams pulling ahead.
RealClearPolitics still rates Love’s race against Salt Lake County Mayor McAdams as a toss-up. Although the KUTV 2News-Dixie Strategies poll that shows McAdams in the lead talked to voters Oct. 24 and 25, a slightly more recent poll by The New York Times shows the two candidates in a tie with a nearly 5-point margin of error.
The KUTV poll’s results came on the same day that conservative group FreedomWorks announced Monday it will include Love’s re-election campaign in a $270,000 pool it will spend on 21 House races across the nation, reported The Deseret News.
McAdams campaign manager Andrew Roberts hammered Love for the outside spending by FreedomWorks even though the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) will spend $250,000 for a final push of television ads supporting McAdams, reported The Deseret News.
Democrats have a real shot of winning this conservative district by running a political chameleon, who's successfully distanced himself from Nancy Pelosi.
