      Exactly. She’s tied and he’s up 23.

      Same respondents.

      Sutton also had higher favorability.

      What gives?

      If she was running for federal office would she be up 23 too?

    Sutton received a LOT of money from dems both in and out of state that Bjorkman didn’t get. There is likely more focus on the governor’s race by the dems since governors are one of 50. Our lone congressman is only one of 435. Kristi was a standout in that large group. But, that’s not saying that Dusty isn’t DYNOMITE!

    Kristi’s been in the public eye for ten years. She was given a lot of positive exposure during her time on the Ways and Means committee. She’s running against an unknown who has zero experience. She can’t even reach 50% in the polls. People know Kristi. People don’t like Kristi.
