Challenger ahead?

Polling numbers for U.S. House races, where much of the action is nationally (and to an extent in the Northwest) have been rare this year. But the firm Constituent Dynamics does have numbers up for about 30 House races around the country, including one in the Northwest.

That would be the premier race in the region, Washington’s 8th congressional districts, between incumbent Republican Dave Reichert and Democratic challenger Darcy Burner. It shows a tight race with Burner ahead – 49% to 46%.

It’s only one poll, and we don’t know a lot about the methodology. But it is another chunk of evidence that this contest is very much up for grabs at least. And if it continues trending as it has, it could start to tilt Democratic in another few weeks.
