Is the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee a bit concerned about the potential impact of the Tea Party in Delaware or have the Democrats completely written off Carol Shea-Porter running for New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District?Naturally this also means Carol Shea-Porter joins the ranks of lost-cause Dems recently removed from life support:
I ask because the Democrats have sent the lady who was on the ground running operations for Carol Shea-Porter’s congressional bid to Delaware to be the Field Director for Chris Coons canvassing operation.
As Republicans made new investments in at least 10 races across the country, including two Democratic seats here in eastern Ohio, Democratic leaders took steps to pull out of some races entirely or significantly cut their financial commitment in several districts that the party won in the last two election cycles.Good thing these folks voted for that death panel isn't it? It doesn't look as though there will be a call from the Governor to save the Dead Dems Walking so they might as well try to save Coons skin while it still looks like it can be saved. Naturally Dems would prefer to pour resources into a reliably liberal vote like Coons as opposed to say the Governor of West Virginia who never met a Dem agenda item he didn't suddenly find toxic. It is only a matter of time before the voters of Delaware figure out Coons will be a rubber stamp for that agenda. Rubber stamp votes for the Obama agenda seem to have a short shelf life these days. I would say it is time for another poll in Delaware.
Representatives Steve Driehaus of Ohio, Suzanne M. Kosmas of Florida and Kathy Dahlkemper of Pennsylvania were among the Democrats who learned that they would no longer receive the same infusion of television advertising that party leaders had promised. Party strategists conceded that these races and several others were slipping out of reach.
UPDATE: Ask and you shall receive:
The latest Fox/Pulse poll of 1000 Likely Delaware voters doesn't hold much hope for O'Donnell. It really doesn't show any movement towards O'Donnell at this point. Moreover, O'Donnell's support appears a bit softer than does Coons' support. Unless Dems are seeing something different in internals, which seems unlikely, Democrats appear to be funneling resources into the state to preserve a win. O'Donnell needs to shake things up here and soon.
And again ask and you shall receive. Here is the latest O'Donnell campaign ad which looks like it has the potential to shake things up:
