Booker-Bell Really a 5-Point Race

William Kristol, Weekly Standard

Booker leads Bell, 51-40. 76% of Booker supporters & 84% of Bell supporters say their mind is made up. Do the math. Among those whose mind is made up, Booker leads Bell 39 to 34%. Booker's hard lead over Bell is a mere 5 points. Money can't always buy you votes.

The focus will be on the 7 swing Senate seats & on making sure R's hold KS & GA. But there are opportunities in MI (open seat) & in 1 or more of MN, VA, OR, NJ, & IL.

Our Conservative Friend Jeff Bell Files For New Jersey Senate Seat

We are encouraged by Jeff Bell’s run for the Senate in New Jersey. Like Bill Kristol, we expect Bell to punch way above his weight class in the match-up against incumbent Democrat Cory Booker because Bell will draw a distinct contrast between his conservative world view and the secular liberal world view of Booker.
