* From a press release…
Today, the Bost for Congress campaign announced a recent poll that shows Illinois 12th Congressional District candidate Mike Bost continues to maintain his lead over incumbent Beltway Bill Enyart.
Key Findings from Polling:
Mike Bost has a +4 point lead over Democratic incumbent Congressman Bill Enyart.
43 percent of district voters indicate that they would vote for Bost, 39 percent would vote for Enyart, 7 percent are voting for Green Party candidate Paula Bradshaw, and 11 percent are undecided.
Bost continues his months-long polling lead. Throughout the race, Enyart has never lead in polling.
“Nancy Pelosi and Barack Obama have spent millions trying to gloss over Bill Enyart’s disastrous record and it’s not working,” said Bost Campaign spokesman Jim Forbes. “This poll is just more proof that Beltway Bill Enyart and his Washington, D.C. cronies don’t understand what’s important in Southern Illinois. Voters would rather have Illinois authenticity than beltway talking points.”
The poll was conducted by the Tarrance Group, a nationally-recognized and widely-respected polling organization.
That Greenie may be hurting Enyart as much as Pat Quinn.
But notice no date is given for when the poll was taken. This release may be due to some nervousness about the new Enyart/DCCC “rant” ads.
* Meanwhile, the NRCC has a new TV ad in the district…
“Congressman Bill Enyart went to Washington and let Southern Illinois families down. Instead of fighting for them, he has sided with Nancy Pelosi to support Obamacare while voting to give himself taxpayer-funded perks. It’s time for new leadership in Washington and Mike Bost is just that. Bost has fought for this community for years and will continue that fight in Congress.” – Katie Prill, NRCC Spokeswoman
* The ad…
ANNCR: Bill Enyart claims he’s for us, but his votes tell a different story.
Enyart backed a plan that gives Congressmen taxpayer funded perks and special benefits.
Bill Illinois families got higher premiums and layoffs.
Bill Enyart let us down.
Mike Bost is different. He runs a small business, opposes Obamacare because we need lower premiums and more jobs.
Change Washington with Mike Bost.
