As Independents Sway to GOP Here's 99 Hopefuls to Watch

FOX News reported today that independent voters are flocking to the GOP according to a new poll.

A Politico/George Washington University poll showed independents choosing Republicans by a 14-point margin. The survey showed those voters held a bleaker-than-average view of key Democratic policies — 62 percent had an unfavorable view of the health care law, compared with 52 percent for all voters; 66 percent said the stimulus is not working, compared with 57 percent for all voters.

Erick Erickson at Redstate put together a list of the top 99 GOP hopefuls to support and watch this last week before the election.

Republican Ruth McClung in Arizona is running a Monday Money Bomb today. With all the bogus registrations being brought in at the last minute on Raul Grijalva’s behalf, she’ll need all the help she can get.
