Dems eye SC Senate seat
Trailing its GOP counterpart by $16 million, the Democratic Party's Senatorial Campaign Committee has to husband its resources for viable candidates. One surprising candidate on that list of DSCC beneficiaries is South Carolina's Alex Sanders. One of just 12 candidates receiving DSCC assistance, Sanders is making a race out of a contest most assumed was safe GOP.
Sanders' last internal poll put him within 8 points of his GOP opponent Graham (46-38). Our Campaigns is reporting a Survey USA poll with a 49-47 narrow lead for Sanders. I have said it before, and I will say it again -- Survey USA polls are crap. But those numbers are fun to look at anyway. It will be interesting to see what the next Mason-Dixon poll has to say on the matter.
Update: Graham lies about his military service:
Graham has been accused of being less than honest about his own life. Some veterans say he is trying to mislead voters about his military service.Posted October 03, 2002 12:19 AM | Comments (6)
