Holy Molé!… Rocket Scientist Ruth McClung Pulls Ahead of Radical Socialist Dem Grijalva in Arizona!
This will send shockwaves all the way to Washington DC–
Conservative rocket scientist Ruth McClung released a poll this morning that shows her pulling ahead of Socialist Democrat Raul Grijalva in Arizona.
“He boycotted us. His own state. His own people.”
Ruth McClung is a rocket scientist at a local Tucson engineering company. Ruth is running against Raul Grijalva, the co-chair of the Progressive Caucus well-known for his socialist policies and support for Raza studies in public schools. He is probably now best known for calling for a boycott of Arizona in response to SB1070.
Ruth spoke at the Tuscon Tea Party Rally this past weekend.
The McClung campaign released the following statement this morning:
PHOENIX, AZ – A recent survey conducted by Phoenix-based Summit Consulting Group, Inc. shows four-term Democrat Congressman Raul Grijalva in a surprisingly tough re-election campaign against Republican Challenger Ruth McClung.
An automated survey conducted between October 4th and 5th among 1,807 likely general election voters shows McClung clearly within striking distance of beating Grijalva in Congressional District 7 which encompasses a large swath of southwestern Arizona.
When asked the question,
“In the upcoming general election for Congress, do you plan on supporting Democrat Raul Grijalva, Republican Ruth McClung, or are you undecided?”
The results were:
Raul Grijalva 37%
Ruth McClung 39%
Based on the results, McClung has locked down the Republican base, losing only 5% to Grijalva. She earns 18% among Democrat voters and a whopping 42% among Independents.
The sample included voters who have participated in the last two general elections and was in line with the current voter registration numbers. Democrats comprised 43%, Republican voters 24% and Independent, Party Not Determined and Other Party were 33% of the sample used.
Maybe supporting an economic boycott against the state you represent was not such a good idea, after all?
Robert Stacy McCain reported reported earlier today on this report from The Politico that shows the race is wide open now:
Add Rep. Raul Grijalva to the growing list of Democratic worries this election season.
Party operatives say there’s increasing concern that the Arizona Democrat’s reelection bid could turn into a “sleeper” race for Republicans after Grijalva — responding to enactment of a tough new immigration law — called for an economic boycott of his own state amid a housing crisis and record unemployment.
Four Democratic sources from different parts of the country said that there is new attention to a race that was long considered in the bag.
And a recent poll, obtained by POLITICO, found that Grijalva and Republican challenger Ruth McClung, a real-life rocket scientist, were in a dead heat, even though Washington prognosticators have declared the deep-blue seat safely Democratic.
Grijalva will be running his first TV ads in 8 years, in a sign that he is in the hardest race he has ever had to run.
This is one of the biggest sleeper races in the country right now. Nobody saw Scott Brown coming – the same could be said of Ruth McClung. Her race against one of the worst Democrats in the country is quickly shaping into a huge upset.
