Novak: Reynolds Among Republicans "Sure To Lose Their Seats"
Is Tom Reynolds history?
Conservative columnist Robert Novak, in his syndicated column yesterday, makes a strong argument that Reynolds (R-NY) is going to lose big to Democrat Jack Davis -- and Republican insiders know it.
"A Republican campaign operative with a reputation for accuracy has put Rep. Tom Reynolds, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, on the list of incumbent Republicans who are ''gone'' -- that is, sure to lose their seats on Nov. 7," Novak writes.
Polls from Zogby and RT Strategies show Reynolds trailing Davis by more than 15 points.
As JABBS has previously noted, Reynolds' campaign has flatlined because he is one of several Republican leaders who say they knew for months about inappropriate e-mails former Rep. Mark Foley (R-FL) sent to House pages. The best Reynolds has done is pass the buck to House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL). Reynolds, chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, apparently asked Foley to run for re-election, even though he likely knew of Foley's "behavioral problems."
