ICYMI: Cook Political Report, Crystal Ball, and Inside Elections Move FL06 Race Rating in Soderberg’s Favor
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
October 30, 2018
Three of the leading sources for analysis on House races across the country, Cook Political Report, Crystal Ball, and Inside Elections, moved the race for Florida’s 6th Congressional District from “Likely Republican” to “Lean Republican,” significantly upgrading Democratic Nominee and former Ambassador Nancy Soderberg’s chances of winning the seat recently vacated by Rep. Ron DeSantis.
“These rating changes reflect what we’re seeing on the ground: Voters are hungry for change, and ready for new direction and new leadership,” Soderberg said. “Our campaign is transcending party lines because we’re talking about and fighting for the issues that affect every family’s well-being: protecting health care, protecting Social Security and Medicare, and creating jobs you can raise a family on. I’m running to represent every person and every family here, not just Democrats, Republicans, or Independents, but every family.”
The race ratings changes come after three polls showed Soderberg and her opponent in a dead heat. Soderberg has also raised over $3 million this cycle and has consistently outraised her opponent every quarter.
