Six Pro-Troop Candidates Close to Winning, But May Fail Without Support

By  

Pro-Troop Candidates in Tight Races

Six Pro-Troop Candidates, conservative military veterans or married to a veteran, are working to beat their opponents in senate and congressional races next week.

According to one poll, in Alaska, Joe Miller leads by a one point margin, but a Hays Research Group poll says Miller is in third place, behind Lisa Murkowski and Scott McAdams. Miller, a US Army veteran served in the Gulf War and is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point.

In North Carolina, the 7th District race is between Marine Officer Ilario Pantano and incumbent Mike McIntyre. Pantano is a conservative who served in Iraq during the fight for Fallujah. McIntyre says voters in the 7th district don't care about national issues such as terror, cutting spending and reducing government.

In New Hampshire, Senate candidate Kelly Ayotte is up against Democrat Paul Hodes. Polls say Ayote is ahead, 56 percent to 41 percent. Former New Hampshire Gov. Judd Gregg supports Ayotte, who was Attorney General in the state. Her husband is an A-10 Warthog pilot who flew missions over Iraq enforcing the No Fly Zone.

US Army Colonel and Iraq War veteran Chris Gibson is 9 points ahead of Democrat incumbent Scott Murphy, in the New York 20th District, according to a Siena Research Institute poll.

Michael Grimm, a US Marine and Gulf War veteran, supported by John McCain, Sarah Palin and Mayor Rudy Giuliani is up against incumbent Michael McMahon in New York 13th Congressional District. Giuliani says The Democrat, McMahon, is desperate and resorts to dirty campaign tricks, including trotting out Grimm's ex-wife and her family to a candidate debate.

Army Major Rocky Raczkowski, an Operation Enduring Freedom veteran is lined up against Democrat incumbent Gary Peters. Recent conflicting polls say each man is ahead by around 5 points.

These six may be close races. Each of the pro-troop candidates are for smaller government, and hope conservatives will be moved to get out and vote, for their own sake as well as for their country.
