State Senator Bob Gibbs hasn't raised much money. He doesn't have the highest name recognition.
But that doesn't stop him from being tied with a two-term Congressman in Ohio's 18th district.
According to an NRCC pollster, Gibbs and Rep. Zack Space are tied at 43%.
But the news gets worse from there.
When asked whether Space deserves re-election, only 38% said yes.
And on an issue of particular concern to the 18th district, 62% said they are opposed to Cap & Trade. Mind you, Space voted for Cap & Trade this year before being left hung out to dry by the Obama Administration.
Space, of course, dismissed the numbers. But don't forget, John McCain won OH-18 over Barack Obama by a full eight points just two years ago. Does anyone else think the political environment has improved in OH-18 since then?
I thought so.
