Over the weekend, David Boswell picked
up the endorsements of the Courier-Journal and the Elizabethtown
News-Enterprise, and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee released a
poll showing that if the election were held today, David Boswell would beat
Brett Guthrie, 47%-41%.
On Friday, the News-Enterprise backed Boswell, saying, "Boswell with his experience and expertise clearly would be more likely to have a voice in shaping the policies that are most important to residents of the 2nd Congressional District..." On Saturday, Boswell also picked up the endorsement of the Courier-Journal, who said "he has been willing to take the right position on difficult issues..."
In addition to the endorsements, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee released a poll showing David Boswell with a 6-point lead over Brett Guthrie. Boswell leads Guthrie as the candidate who "will do more to protect jobs in Kentucky" and who "will fight to protect the middle class."
The Boswell campaign also released a new ad this weekend on the "Guthrie Gamble" – Guthrie supports putting pensions in the stock market, he is a champion for NAFTA and other trade deals that will send jobs overseas, and he raised money from Dick Cheney and his friends in big oil while Kentucky families were paying more and more at the pump.
