The Hill has released results of a new poll conducted April 4-5 ahead of the April 26 firehouse primary for the GOP nomination in the 10th Cong. Dist.
The Citizens United poll finds Del. Barbara Comstock with 44% followed by Del. Bob Marshall at 10%. Stephen Hollingshead, Howie Lind, and Rob Wasinger are all tied at 3% with Marc Savitt bringing up the rear with just 1%.
At this rate, it looks like no one will be able to catch Comstock with her so close to 50% against a field of five other candidates. This could explain why the Howie Lind radio commercials attacking Comstock are growing more absurd by the day — Barbara Comstock is backed by the D.C. establishment that hates the Tea Party and supports amnesty — thereby trying to ascribe those positions to her. The ads even say she supports expansion of Medicaid / Obamacare in Virginia and that it is on her own website when in fact her own website details her fight against this expansion. She even voted against LAST YEAR’S budget over concerns about expansion.
If Team Lind continues to spread such lies about Comstock’s record, then they may find themselves having to confront the truths about their own candidate’s life.
