CGS-endorsed candidates picking up steam....

With less than two weeks left until Election Day, many congressional candidates around the country are locked in extremely tight races.  In several states, CGS-endorsed candidates appear to be picking up momentum as the final stretch of the campaign begins, as illustrated by the recent polls showing positive signs for Joe Sestak (D) in the Pennsylvania Senate race and Senator Russ Feingold (D) in the Wisconsin Senate contest.

Two polls released in the last several days gave Sestak a slight lead in Pennsylvania over conservative former Rep. Pat Toomey (R) after trailing for months.  Another poll showed Sestak and Toomey tied.  Other polls have shown Toomey with a slight lead, but it seems clear that Sestak has closed the polling gap with Toomey over the last few days.  To read Sestak's Candidate Questionnaire, visit http://www.globalsolutions.org/politics/elections_and_candidates/questionnaire/2010?id=S0PA00434.  To see his 2010 Congressional Report Card score and voting record, visit http://www.globalsolutions.org/politics/congressional_report_card/2010/grades?STATE=PA&UserDistrict=07.

Meanwhile in Wisconsin, Senator Feingold's numbers have been improving as well.  Previous polls have shown him trailing his opponent, Republican Ron Johnson, for several months now.  However, a recent poll showed a virtual statistical tie between Feingold and Johnson, with Johnson leading Feingold 49-47, within the margin of error.  To view Senator Feingold's 2010 Report Card voting record, visit http://www.globalsolutions.org/politics/congressional_report_card/2010/grades?STATE=WI&UserDistrict=.
