Dino Rossi, the pro-life candidate for the Senate in Washington state, has come back in the polls and now leads pro-abortion incumbent Sen. Patty Murray by one percent.
Just over a week ago, Murray inched ahead 49% to 46%, but she has lost that lead in subsequent polls.
A Survey USA poll founds Murray leading 50-47, that dropped to 49-47 in a PPP poll, and then McClatchy had the race at 48-47 for Murray before this new survey.
Pollster Scott Rasmussen says the poll shows the Washington Senate race is a true tossup.
“But highlighting the closeness of the race, neither candidate has held a lead greater than five points in 15 surveys conducted since January, and they’ve been within two points of each other nine times. Murray’s support has ranged from 45% to 51%, while Rossi has picked up 46% to 49% of the vote,” he said.
“The Susan B. Anthony List is proud to support Dino Rossi in his bid to defeat Senator Patty Murray,” said SBA List president Marjorie Dannenfelser in a statement to LifeNews.com. [related]
“Patty Murray has voted repeatedly in favor of taxpayer funding of abortion and has been rewarded with more than $538,000 in campaign contributions from the pro-abortion lobby,” Dannenfelser explained. “Washington taxpayers deserve better than Patty Murray. They can count on Dino Rossi to keep their hard-earned tax dollars from paying for abortions. He is the better candidate for women and all Washingtonians.”
Murray received a zero percent rating from the National Right to Life Committee in the 111th Congress — including votes against the Nelson-Hatch Amendment to prevent tax dollars from paying for abortions through the health care bill and a vote against the Mexico City Policy to prevent federal dollars from paying for abortions and promoting abortion policies overseas.
