New Poll Suggest Ohio Senate Race May Be Over
AMERICAblog.com reports that the GOP is taking steps that suggest it is not going to focus on Ohio Sen. Mike Dewine's bid for re-election.
"The GOP is pulling out of Ohio. The DSCC has tracked the numbers. The RNC is scaling back big time," the blog reports.
Other reports have suggested the GOP is moving money from Ohio and the flatlined campaign of Sen. Rick Santorum (R-PA) to help Sen. George Allen (R-VA), who holds a narrow lead over Democrat Jim Webb, according to recent polls.
The change in Republican spending habits comes on the heels of a new Quinnipiac poll that has Rep. Sherrod Brown, the Democrat, with a 12-point lead over DeWine.
Brown was favored by 53 percent of voters surveyed in The Quinnipiac University Poll conducted Oct. 10-15, compared to 41 percent who favored DeWine. The same poll found a statistical tie in the race in September.
