Jim Davis gaining on Charlie Crist! Help turn Florida Blue!!
Edited on Mon Oct-23-06 12:39 PM by FLDem5
- an email I just received: Great news - Davis has been trailing since the primary. I am getting very excited about November!

Democrats!

I wanted to give you an update on the exciting campaign. Check out the latest poll numbers - especially noteworthy is today's Quinnipiac poll showing Jim Davis statistically tied with his Republican opponent. Keep fighting and we're going to win this!!! Please contribute today to help us in the final push!!!

--Karen Thurman


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GOVERNOR'S RACE NECK-AND-NECK: According to recent public polling, statewide Democratic candidates are either ahead of or statistically tied with their Republican opponents:
- Florida's next Governor, Jim Davis, has closed the gap with Crist-Crossin' Charlie Crist, trailing by only five points (46-44) in the respected, nonpartisan Quinnipiac University poll released this morning.

- Our U.S. Senator Bill Nelson has held strong against Katherine Harris' multi-million dollar attack campaign, leading 57-31 in a Mason-Dixon poll conducted 10/16-10/17.

- In the Attorney General's race, Skip Campbell has pulled within the margin of error (42-39) against Jack Abramoff's friend and perennial loser, Republican Bill McCollum, in the latest Mason-Dixon poll.

- The same Mason-Dixon poll shows financial leader Alex Sink just one point behind the king of special interests, Republican Tom Lee, in the race for Chief Financial officer. Another poll, conducted by Survey USA shows the race at 49-47, also a statistical tie.

U.S. SENATE DEBATE TONIGHT: Tune in to your local PBS station at 8 p.m. tonight to watch Bill Nelson debate Katherine Harris. You never know what Harris is going to say next, so this should be an interesting one.

DAVIS TO CLEAN CRIST'S CLOCK TOMORROW: Tuesday, the first general election gubernatorial debate airs on PBS stations live at 8 p.m. Watch Charlie Crist, with the policy aptitude of a young George W. Bush, try to dance his way around his own waffles and flip-flops. Email grassroots@fladems.com with your favorite waffle of the evening. The best one will be posted at Crist-Crossin' Charlie's House of Waffles.

YOU CAN VOTE TODAY: Early voting begins today. Visit vote.fladems.com to find your polling location. Or, if you chose to vote by mail, don't forget to send in your absentee ballot! Do it today!

3. Why does your post say this?
trailing by only five points (46-44)

Why five points, when it is only 2, according ot the 46-44 number?
