Dick Morris has reported that Cong. Gerry Connolly, VA 11, is moving strongly from a yes vote towards a no vote on the Senate’s Health Care bill (http://bit.ly/cbtuqp). Connolly, president of the Democrats freshman Congressmen and women, won the long time Republican seat by riding on the anti-Bush coattails of Obama when Tom Davis retired. Independents and moderate Republicans who supported him in the last election are worried about his support of the President’s so called reforms.
A recent poll in the district (http://bit.ly/9ncOe8) has him at 35% and trailing one of the Republican challengers, Keith Fimian, by 5 points.
