Chronic high unemployment. An anemic economy. Uncertainty about the future. So, what is Gerry “Hit and Run” Connolly and his all-eunuch orchestra at the DCCC talking about? Abortion and guns — 24/7.
While Keith Fimian is running on job creation, tax cuts and economic growth (while simultaneously hammering Connolly on his failed record of runaway spending, tax hikes and government control of our healthcare system), Connolly is AWOL on these fiscal issues in the final days of Campaign 2010.
There has not been any public polls released in the 11th District outside of one from a month ago that showed Fimian with about a 5-point lead. However, there are two sure signs that Connolly is trailing, perhaps badly. First, he and his pals are playing the abortion and gun control cards. Second, the DCCC has dropped $1 million into his race in the final week of the campaign, the most of anywhere in the country. You don’t do that if your guy is ahead in the polls.
