Update: Word I’m getting is that the polling is for real. Don’t think it’s a GOP ploy to wake up the sleeping masses in the district who were all lulled by the infighting. This one could get real interesting with turnout. Appears absentee will be tight, but Weirauch’s ground game is clearly on top at this point. NRCC pumping 16% of cash on hand into this?
