Ernst Leads Braley By 6% in IA, Beauprez Leads By 10% in CO

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

There is still something magical about winning a division in baseball that no other sport can match. Maybe it is the length of the season, number of games, or the limited number of playoff teams baseball has…I don’t know. Whatever it is, watching the Orioles win the division last night was just plain fun to watch, especially since I have been waiting for 17 years for it. Now they just need to wipe out the 31-year drought since they won the World Series in 1983. The other nice thing is, locally, this sports story drowns out the entire Ray Rice debacle for a day and we have something positive to read about in sports in Maryland.

As promised, Quinnipiac University gave us a new poll for the US Senate race in Iowa and it shows JOni Ernst has opened up a 6% lead over Bruce Braley.
