Alan Hevesi is still up a dozen points over emboldened Republican challenger Chris Callaghan, according to a new Quinnipiac University poll released today. A Newsday/NY1 poll puts Hevesi ahead by ten, but both polls are an improvement over last week's Siena New York survey that found the race "too close to call."
This weekend Hevesi ran an ad demanding that voters look at his record and ignore the tabloid headlines dancing at his downfall and the Democratic politicians fleeing his headquarters. Maybe it worked. Perhaps all the sympathy people just couldn't work up for Jeanine Pirro goes to our besieged and embattled state numbers guy.
