This is one US Senate seat the Democrats would REALLY like to capture in their quest to retake a majority in the US Senate next year….
Former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland (D) has a healthy early lead over incumbent Sen. Rob Portman (R) in the race for Ohio Senate, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released on Monday.
The survey finds Strickland taking 48 percent support over Portman, at 39 percent. Strickland is buoyed in the poll by independent voters, who support him 50 percent to 32 percent over Portman.
That’s a strong early showing for Strickland, who will likely begin the race for Ohio Senate at a financial disadvantage.
Last week, Portman announced he raised nearly $3 million in the first quarter of the year, bringing his total cash on hand to about $8 million. That puts him near the top of the money list for all senators up for reelection….
That Poll has Ohio Gov Kasich at 61% job approval level, Atwater leading Murphy 38% to 34% in Florida US Senate Race , and Toomey leading Sestak in Pennsylvania Senate race 48% to 35%….Share on Facebook
