The Joe Radinovich Campaign, stunned by polling that showed them slipping from a one point lead to being 15 point dogs, hit another bump on the campaign trail yesterday; J-Rad’s campaign manager has bailed:
Meredith Raimondi has confirmed with Alpha News that she is no longer with Radinovich’s campaign. Raimondi would not give any further details regarding her departure.
Raimondi’s exit is another setback amidst a difficult week for Radinovich’s campaign.
On Tuesday the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) cancelled $1.2 million in ads in the district, redirecting the funds to races that Democrats are more likely to win.
The sudden loss in funding comes after a new New York Times poll that shows Radinovich’s opponent, Republican Pete Stauber, up 15 percentage points.
The independent, non-partisan Cook Political Report also weighed in on Radinovich’s chances, downgrading the race from “Toss Up” to the “Lean Republican” on Tuesday.
If you’d told me when I started my blog in 2002, or my show in 2004, that I’d see CD8 looking at sustained GOP victories of any kind, much less two-digit ones, in my lifetime, I’d have said you should get that traumatic brain injury looked at.
And yet here we are.
