Be nice to the handicapped, or your supporters will:
The Democratic candidate for the only House seat in the reddest of states – Vice President Dick Cheney’s Wyoming – is drawing even with GOP Rep. Barbara Cubin after a wheelchair-bound third-party candidate accused her of threatening to slap him.
Cubin, who is seeking a seventh term, leads Democrat Gary Trauner 44 percent to 40.4 percent, according to a new poll by the Wyoming Tribune-Eagle.
Five percent said they would vote for the allegedly threatened Libertarian candidate, Thomas Rankin.
This is something to keep in mind the next time a major party makes some snide comment to one of our candidates, have them make a stink about it to the media… the proof is in the poll.
