Political Tidbits…18 Days

Everyone is fixated on the polls…..they change everyday…..but what does not change is the importance of turnout…..that is where elections are won…..equally important Governor Underwood used to say is timing.

18 days to go…..small movements matter…..battleground districts still tilt to the GOP says an NPR survey…..the Democratic enthusiasm gap has been cut a little…..likely voters with a very high interest are more likely to be Republicans…..that is sure the case in WV.

We are about ready to find out how much influence Rep. Nick Joe Rahall has with the Obama administration…..EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson has been told to make the final decision on the Spruce Number One Mine permit…..a lot of jobs hang in the balance…..including Rahall’s…..look for GOP congressional candidate Spike Maynard to use this one.

National pollsters still have McKinley in a tossup race with Oliverio…..in terms of nasty ads they are both winning……TURNOUT.

Not wanted anywhere…..can you believe President Obama & VP Biden…..are both in Delaware…..where the Senate Democratic candidate is expected to win…..Obama must be there to boost up Biden…..and deliver his losing message.

Republicans don’t miss the GOP Victory Gala…..Senator Mitch McConnell is making the trip October 22…. to aid Republicans…..in their final push…..tickets @304.768.0493.

Back to turnout…..State GOP leaders offer turnout volunteers…..a ride on the “Fire Pelosi Bus”…..if they are the first to make 500 calls….. or knock on 100 doors…..now get this for making the first  300 calls or visit 75 homes…..a picture made with RNC Chairman Michael Steele…..now would that be something to hang on your wall!!!!

Remember Richard Trumka…..former UMW leader…..now leading the AFL-CIO…..he plans to create a ‘firewall’ in some of the close House races…..to protect the Democrats’ majority…..better have the volunteer fire companies in Rahall’s district standby.

Don’t forget Monday night at 8 on WV Public Broadcasting TV Manchin and Raese will face off.
