The last 24 hours have brought a barrage of salvos in the expectations war.
Campaigns for Rep. William L. Owens, D-Plattsburgh, and Matthew A. Doheny, a Republican of Watertown, both released internal poll results yesterday. The battle is over this question: Is Mr. Doheny within striking distance? It's an important question, given the fact that you can't fundraise if nobody thinks you're going to win.
Here's the newest: Roll Call, previously having called this race a tossup, now says it's "lean Democratic."
"Republican nominee Matt Doheny has not yet managed to capitalize on that vulnerability in this newly configured district in northern New York," Roll Call writes. "Although the Owens-Doheny race is a rematch of 2010, Owens looks to be in surprisingly good shape."
