After seeing four consecutive polls during the summer months that posted Pennsylvania Rep. Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Levittown) to leads between 12 and 16 percentage points, two new Democratic polls bring the race back into toss-up range.
The Global Strategy Group (10/1-4; 400 PA-1 likely voters; live interview), for the Christina Finello campaign, finds the Congressman’s lead dropping to only 47-45%. Meanwhile, Public Policy Polling (10/6-7; 569 PA-1 voters; automated response device) actually sees Ms. Finello slipping past the incumbent and into a one-point lead, 47-46%. Based upon the closer polling results, the House Majority PAC has committed a $1.2 million expenditure to help Ms. Finello’s efforts, the first of outside organization expenditures in this campaign.
