"Line in the sand," eh? Looks like we're about to cross right over it.
Research 2000 for Daily Kos. 10/21-23. Likely voters. MoE ±5% (10/5-7 results).

Burner (D) 46 (41)
Now that's a sight for sore eyes, huh? The Right, on the retreat nationwide, has decided that this will be one of their "line in the sand" districts. The NRCC, the wingnut 527s, and the well-funded incumbent Reichert are dumping everything on Darcy, but she's still somehow managed to close an eight-point gap in two weeks.
This election is shaping up to be more than a defeat for the Cons. It's starting to look very much like a rout.
