Polls, pundits give cause for optimism as Dill caps energetic primary campaign (June 11, 2012)

AUGUSTA — State Sen. Cynthia Dill, the leading progressive in the race for the U.S. Senate, will vote tomorrow at approximately 8 a.m. at Cape Elizabeth High School, Ocean House Road, as part of her Election Day schedule.

The remainder of her day will be spent greeting voters at these polling places:

In the evening, Dill will greet and rally with supporters at Local Buzz in Cape Elizabeth after the polls close at 8 p.m.

Dill’s campaign has enjoyed a energetic response in the runup to Election Day, generating the most views for her convention speech on YouTube of any of the Democratic contestants, and more than 23,000 views of her campaign Facebook page June 3-9. Well-known Democratic pundits have said her campaign is generating the most excitement. Two polls have given her a slight lead in the race, and organizers of a straw poll of 300 activists last week said the race was “very close.”

“We continue to be very excited about our ability to win this nomination, but the only poll that matters is tomorrow at the ballot box,” Dill said. “We need Democrats to stand up.”

“I’m encouraging my staff, supporters, and those who are still deciding, to not take anything for granted tomorrow if we want a progressive to bring the people’s agenda to the race for an open U.S. Senate seat. Democrats must return to their core values of peace, shared prosperity and common wealth. Our campaign represents the best way to do that.”
