In 2008, WA-2 went 62-38 for the Democrat. Now polling shows the Republican leading by 4. http://www.surveyusa.com/client/PollReport.aspx?g=42ee4e0b-d36d-4eed-9d63-4ef5b18d41ce

In 2008, WA-3 went 64-36 for the Democrat. Now (with the incumbent retired), polling shows the Republican leading by 13. http://www.surveyusa.com/client/PollReport.aspx?g=a971aa52-73bd-4b3f-9181-6775402a2d77

In 2008, VA-5 went to the Dem in a 50-50 race. Now, polling shows the Republican challenger leading by 26. http://www.surveyusa.com/client/PollReport.aspx?g=c99d02f1-c85b-48f7-b4ea-b11209a4dc71

In summary, flipping Lawson from 37% to 50.1% will be tough, but is not impossible, as other districts are being flipped even more. It would be nice to see independent polling of the Lawson race.

We need an independent poll done on this race.

Good post. Any idea what the big news BJ has been pumping in emails for the past week is about?

I haven't been around as much as I used to due to school starting again, but last time I was at his house, there wasn't any talk of it.

Perhaps it's going to be poll results? Maybe an eye-opening piece of opposition research? I'm honestly not sure. I am excited, though.

Graet post, btw, Epic. This should prove to everyone that this is doable.

Im very excited about this race. I would love to see some independent polling. The reception at the debate was very lively.

The news Lawson is exited about is the internal polling he id, which ties him with Price! We've gotta win this seat!

Lawson 45.6%
Price: 45.1%
