Democrat Laura Hall and Republican Paul Sanford debate tonight on the eve of tomorrow’s election in Senate District 7. It will be on WHNT-19 from 6:30 to 7, and you can see it streamed on the internet here. How many people will really tune it to watch it, and how many of them will be undecided voters?
I hear a little more optimism about the election among Democrats than I do among Republicans, though we know that turnout is the key for a special election. Republicans are saying that they did as well as or better than the Democrats in getting absentee ballots returned. I hear anecdotally that Democrats have 70 or 80 people up there now knocking on doors of residents, and they believe they are ahead in the ground game. On the other side, a Republican close to the campaign tells the Parlor that they knocked on over 1000 doors on Saturday alone, and that they have 20-30 people out today and tomorrow continuing to go door to door.
Rumors, rumors… If you are interested in rumors about polls, AEA supposedly has a poll showing Hall ahead. And there are rumors that a poll done for the GOP shows a statistical dead heat between the candidates.
