The Most Obnoxious Dem in Congress in Trouble
Alan Grayson is in real trouble in Florida. Sean Trende on RCP:
The latest Sunshine State/VSS poll shows controversial Democratic incumbent Alan Grayson trailing former state Senator Dan Webster by seven points, 43 percent to 36 percent. A majority of respondents -- 51 percent -- disapprove of the job that Grayson is doing. Independents have an unfavorable view of him as well, by a 36/47 margin.
Contessa Brewer engages Grayson on hisdisgraceful, dishonest "Taliban Dan" smear and - to her credit - refuses to let him off the hook for it. At one point, Grayson accuses Brewer of distracting attention from women's issues, but Brewer fires back and tells Grayson that he approved the ad and its own off-message smears and out-of-context quotes. If Grayson was serious about the issues, Brewer asks, why not just stick to the issues rather than issue an ad rated "false" by Factcheck?
