A new Connecticut Examiner/Fabrizio and Lee & Associates survey indicates that Republican Senate candidate Leora Levy is narrowing the gap with Democrat Richard Blumenthal only weeks before the November elections.
The survey found that Levy behind incumbent Senator Blumenthal by only five points, 44% to 49%, with a margin of error of 2.8%. According to her website, Levy, who has served as the Republican National Committeewoman for Connecticut since 2016, seeks to replace Blumenthal’s “far-left policies” that endanger “freedom and security.”
“It took until mid-October, but finally a public survey reflects the reality of this race: Leora Levy is in a margin-of-error, neck-and-neck race with Dick Blumenthal, a career politician with a thirty-seven-year head start,” said Tim Saler, spokesperson for the Levy campaign, in a statement to the CT Examiner. “Dick Blumenthal is under 50 percent despite spending more than $5.3 million dollars on advertising since the middle of June.”
Blumenthal’s spokesperson, Ty McEachern, stated that Blumenthal will continue to fight as if he is “10 points” behind. “Senator Blumenthal is attempting to become Connecticut’s nominee for the Senate, while his opponent is Donald Trump’s nominee. As always, he is committed to his work and achieving results for the people of Connecticut. He will continue to work as though he is 10 points behind.”
