Closing out June
Russ this week voted against a constitutional amendment to make Flag burning illegal. For all those who say Russ is against freedom of expression and individual liberty because of McCain-Feingold, I rest my case. Russ also, as always, voted against the unfair Oman Free Trade Agreement Implementation Act Unfortunately, Michigan was split on both issues. Levin went along with Michigan voters and voted along side Russ. Stabenow chose not to vote on the OFTAIA but did vote yes on the Flag burning amendment. C'mon Debbie, we know your better then that. The month of June has been pretty nice to Russ in statewide polls. Russ Trails Kerry by only one point in Florida and Georgia. He is tied with Kerry in Michigan and New Jersey. In Pennsylvania he is beating Kerry by 1 point and has almost doubled him in Washington as he is just 1 point behind Edwards. In Wisconsin, he is in a statistical tie with Hillary for first place. To add a cherry on top of that, remember that these polls are done by Strategic Vision. From my findings, they are a bit Republicanish. So if their polls are finding this, then you know Russ is all good BBQ with the American people.
