Jeb losing ground
A new poll shows McBride gaining against Gov. Jeb in Florida's hotly contested governor's race. The poll gives Bush a 49-43 percent lead, marking an increasingly closer race.
In addition to giving the McBride camp a morale boost, the good results in the non-partisan poll will clearly help McBride raise campaign funds against the well-funded Bush.
[Pollster Brad] Coker said the Bush-McBride debate Friday night, the first of three televised meetings planned before the Nov. 5 election, will be important for both candidates in swaying the 7 percent of undecided voters in such a tight race.Posted September 26, 2002 08:40 AM | Comments (3)
