Karen Harrington Closes Within 5% Points of Wasserman Schultz

By Javier Manjarres

Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz might want to consider heading back down to South Florida to defend her congressional seat if she’s hoping to get re-elected.  Karen Harrington, Wasserman Schultz’ Republican opponent has just released an internal poll she commissioned that has her well within striking distance of Wasserman Schultz.

The Gravis Strategies poll of 385 likely voters in the Democrat-leaning 23rd congressional district in Florida has Harrington a mere 4.5% points behind Wasserman Schultz- within the 5% margin of error.  The D+11 congressional district is in a traditional South Florida Democratic stronghold, but Republicans and Independents combined outnumber Democrats.

In 2010, Harrington lost to Wasserman Schultz by 22 points and was only able to raise a few hundred thousand dollars for her campaign.  But this campaign has turned out to be another story, as Harrington raised over one million dollars and has been able to effectively campaign on Wasserman Schultz’  support for President Obama’s failed policies.

 Harrington’s early morning press release stated the following-

 We have campaigned across the district and spoken to Americans from all political affiliations, and the overwhelming consensus is that they have had enough of the dangerous, divisive and irresponsible representation from Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz that has taken our country in the wrong direction.”- Karen Harrington

According to the campaign, “the survey was conducted October 1-2 by Gravis Strategies, and has Congresswoman Wasserman Schultz leading Karen Harrington 44.2% – 39.7%, with 16.1% of voters surveyed undecided.” Harrington is turning these results into a money bomb of sorts, so supporters are encourage to visit the campaign website and contribute.  Read more here
