Tony Campbell has a Shot in US Senate Race
Don’t look now, but we might have an actual U.S. Senate race campaign.
In an email sent to supporters today, Republican nominee Tony Campbell told supporters:
“We just got our first major poll results, The firm Grassroots Partners sampled more than 1,200 likely Maryland voters, with a margin of error of +/- 3%. What they found was incredible and it’s blowing all the entrenched swamp politicians away.”
Red Maryland has obtained a copy of the polling memo distributed by Grassroots Partners.
The key takeaways of the memo are:
- Ben Cardin is not a lock for re-election. This could have as much to do with Ben Jealous being a drag on the Democratic ticket as it is Cardin’s lack of charisma or how he virtually vanishes from meeting with voters until it’s time to run for re-election.
- Despite spending a lot of money (mainly his own), independent candidate Neal Simon is not lighting the world on fire.
- Tony Campbell is already running ahead of the absolute floor for Republicans running statewide in Maryland, which was the 33.9% of the vote that President Trump received in 2016.
- There is still plenty of room for Campbell to grow with undecided voters.
As we round the corner toward Labor Day this weekend, that Tony Campbell has a shot in the U.S. Senate race shows just how damaged the Democratic brand is in Maryland thanks to the radical left-wing turn by the Democrats towards radical socialist Ben Jealous.
The issue for Campbell is going to be fundraising. At the end of the most recent filing period, Campbell had $6,423 cash on hand. Cardin had $3,018,955 and Simon had $661,089.
It will be interesting to see where we go from here. However, it is interesting to see that at the present time there are three statewide races, for Governor, for Attorney General, and for U.S. Senate, that will not be walkover wins for the Democrats despite their overwhelming voter registration advantage. It really is the end of the Democratic Party as we know it.
