Rep. Steve Chabot (R-Cincinnati) has already been waging a tough campaign against his opponent, Hamilton County Clerk of Courts Aftab Pureval (D). Both candidates have been streaming a barrage of negative ads into the southwestern Ohio media market, but the Chabot/National Republican Congressional Committee/Congressional Leadership Fund combination of audio and video messages appear to be tarnishing Mr. Pureval’s image.
According to a new American Viewpoint survey for the CLF (9/18-20; 400 OH-1 likely voters), Rep. Chabot is now leading the race, 46-39%. The 1st District contains about half the city of Cincinnati and 63% of Hamilton County. It then annexes all of Warren County to the northeast.
