IN-Carson Up 15

Some may have underestimated the 68 year old 4 term Congresswomen Julia Carson of Indiana, but voters in Indiana's 7th Congressional district haven't. A poll, conducted from September 5-8, shows Ms. Carson with a 15 point lead over Republican nominee Eric Dickerson.

In one of the six races that will pit African American candidates against one another in November, Ms. Carson seems to have the edge with voter registration and the nuances that flow from incumbancy like fundraising.

As of today Ms. Carson has raised over $200,ooo and Mr. Dickerson has totaled just over $32,000.

The seventh CD encompasses the city of Indianapolis and close in suburbs and is one of two districts held by Democrats in Indiana. The other 7 are held by Republicans.
