Shortly before he walked into a public event, Yarmuth said there has been a lot of discussion about security in the last week, and many representatives are most concerned about protecting their constituents.
Third District Congressman John Yarmuth says he’s concerned about the potential for partisanship in the House of Representatives over the next two years.
Yarmuth defeated Todd Lally Tuesday night. In his acceptance speech, Yarmuth criticized Lally and other Republicans for trying to tie Democratic candidates to President Barack Obama and outgoing Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi.
Some national polls this election season have shown a sizeable enthusiasm gap. Democrats in many areas are less excited about voting than Republicans, and a high conservative turnout will likely push many GOP candidates to victory. But lately, some Democratic candidates have begun using the potential for Republican victory to rally the party faithful.
The poll was conducted for WHAS-11 and the Courier-Journal between last Thursday and Monday. It gives Yarmuth fifty percent of the vote compared to Lally’s 46 percent, with a 4.1 percent margin of error.
While growing attention from the National Republican Congressional Committee and now a visit from the House’s top Republican could boost chances for Todd Lally, who is running against Rep. John Yarmuth (D-KY) for the third district seat in the U.S. House of Representatives, his campaign coffers are still less than half as full as Yarmuth’s as the fall campaign season kicks off.
