KY-04: SUSA Shows Lucas (D) Edging Davis (R) Again

Posted by James L.

KY-04 (likely voters, August in parens):

Ken Lucas (D): 48 (44)
Geoff Davis (R-Inc.): 44 (46)
MoE: ±4.8%

Lucas held this conservative seat for three terms before stepping down to honor a term limits pledge in 2004 (how rare), and is back in the fore to put this race into play. Lucas never won by wide margins, but his moderate-to-conservative profile allowed him to make inroads in a district that is dominated by Democrats of a similar ideological stripe (Democrats edge Republicans in self-identification by 46-39 here according to this poll) but one that Cook now ranks at R+11.7. This race wouldn't be on the map without him, and for that, we should be grateful.

This is good news, but unfortunately Geoff Davis has already hit the air waves with ads. He continously plays this ad about giving troops armored vehicles. I've seen it about a million times. (I live near Cincinnati in Ohio, but the television market for KY-04 uses Cincinnati airwaves). Lucas needs to get on the television and fast, before voters start making up their minds.

Still this poll is good news.

Also I am trying to raise 4,000 dollars for Dr. Victoria Wulsin who is running in OH-02 against Jean "Mean Jean" Schmidt. Remember, this is the district Paul Hackett ran in, so a win here is possible even though it's highly conservative. My old goal of 3,000 dollars was shattered thanks to great blogging at dailykos, but I'd really appreciate it if readers could donate 10, 15, or even 50 dollars to the campaign.

To donate go to

Also if David, James, or RBH could please post this link on the main page, I'd really appreciate it. The DCCC isn't helping Dr. Wulsin out that much (They label her as an emerging race) so please let's get the netroots behind her!
