New surveys are available for the two indicted Congressmen seeking re-election, and the results find both maintaining small leads.
In California, Survey USA polling for the San Diego Union Tribune (10/25-29; 547 CA-50 likely voters) finds Rep. Duncan Hunter (R-Alpine) leading Democrat Ammar Campa-Najjar, 48-45%, in a race marked with the incumbent’s campaign finance scandal. Rep. Hunter has gone heavily negative, mercilessly attacking his opponent over having a grandfather who was a Palestinian terrorist responsible in part for Israeli athletes being murdered at the 1972 Olympic Games.
Turning to New York, Rep. Chris Collins (R-Clarence/Batavia), under federal indictment for insider trading, holds a similarly close 44-40% edge over Democrat Nate McMurray according to a new Siena College/New York Times survey (10/24-29; 608 NY-27 likely voters).
