The 1st Congressional District campaign is starting to warm up. Though the numbers say the Democrats might eek out a win, there are indicators that say otherwise. One of those is the reduced spending by the Democrat party and low donation numbers to McDowell's campaign.
There are still ads airing by the Michigan Democrat party, but even those were based on buys done earlier. Expect them to NOT increase. Conversely, the Benishek Campaign is in full swing.
Readers might find Benishek's pledge to serve only 3 terms appealing as well.
Below the fold are two newly produced ads for Dan Benishek. Spread them around.
-- UPDATE: --- 2:12
According to the NRCC numbers:
"Michigan's 1st District seat, vacated by retiring Rep. Bart Stupak (D), has also been a target for both parties, as both the NRCC and DCCC have aired ads there. The NRCC survey, conducted by Hill Research Consultants Sept. 19-21, found Republican Dan Benishek leading Democrat Gary McDowell 40% to 24% among 400 likely voters. In this Upper Peninsula district, Obama is viewed unfavorably by 56% in the survey."
