"Democrats are showing the clearest sign yet of concern ahead of next Tuesday's special election in New York's 9th District - the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee is going up on air with an expensive television buy in the campaign's closing days.
According to buy information obtained by Hotline On Call, the DCCC has made a $483,500 TV ad buy in the district, starting tomorrow through Monday. The broadcast TV buy will not air on September 11, the 10th anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
The Democratic super PAC House Majority PAC has also bought advertising time in the district as well.
The fight to succeed disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner has turned into a neck and neck race in the Brooklyn and Queens district. Democratic Assemblyman David Weprin went up on air yesterday with a $270,000 buy on New York City broadcast television, as polls have shown Republican Bob Turner closing in, despite the district's 133,000 Democratic voter registration edge."
It would certainly bode ill for the democrats if they lost this seat. But, hope springs eternal and looking at the mess Weiner and his cohorts have in their districts maybe the Republican has a chance. Good Luck Turner! Let us hope the seat changes hands from a Weiner to a Patriot!
Updated 9-10-2011. The latest poll shows Republican Turner up by six points! If this holds it will be a unmistakable message to Obama and the democrats. They will be toast in 2012. HERE is the article.
