NYS Campaign 2006: In a Word … Lopsided
Senator Hillary Clinton is coasting toward re-election in November: Hillary Clinton handily outmatches either of her potential Republican opponents for November’s U.S. Senate race in New York. Clinton leads former Yonkers Mayor John Spencer by 25 percentage points. Former Reagan administration official Kathleen Troia McFarland, who suspended her senate campaign this week, trails Senator Clinton by 30 percentage points. Clinton also has a formidable lead against Jonathan Tasini for the Democratic nomination in September.
