Campaign Update from Campaigns Committee

With Thanksgiving break over, the year’s political events are beginning to wind down, especially as Christmas is about three weeks away! But, there was plenty of news this past week – from the two uninvited guests at Obama’s first State Dinner, to Obama’s rather fruitless trip abroad to China. Meanwhile, as the new year is only a few weeks away, primary season is right around the corner. The first major primary will be in early February in Illinois, where a major fight will emerge for now-President Obama’s former Senate seat, currently held by Roland Burris. Congressman Mark Kirk, a moderate, is poised to win the GOP nomination.

Polling Data
11/12 – Susquehanna, Delaware US Senate seat – Biden (D) – 45%, Castle (R) – 40% (this is Joe Biden’s old Senate seat!)
11/23 – Zogby, North Dakota US Senate seat – Dorgan* (D) – 36%, Hoeven (R) – 55% (Hoeven is currently Governor of North Dakota)
11/24 – Rasmussen Reports, US House of Representatives, Democrats 37%, Republicans 44%
11/24 – Democracy Corps, US House of Representatives, Democrats 47%, Republicans 45%
11/23 – Marist, New York US Senate seat, Gillibrand* (D) – 45%, Pataki (R) – 47%
