Wehby Insists She's Close

Oregon U.S. Senate candidate Monica Wehby (R), seeking to discount polls showing her well behind Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-OR), said her own pollster shows her virtually neck-and-neck with the Democratic incumbent, the Oregonian reports.

"Wehby's firm, The Alexandria, Va.-based Tarrance Group, said its June 1-3 survey of 650 likely voters showed that Merkley is at 41 percent and Wehby is at 39 percent. That is strongly at odds with two surveys conducted independently of the two campaigns shortly after the May 20 primary that showed Merkley ahead of Wehby by between 10 and 13 percentage points."
