In it, but not of it. TPM DC

Libertarian Ex-Candidate Accuses GOPer Of Kicking Him Off Ballot, Endorses Democrat

When asked for comment, Tedisco spokesman Adam Kramer told TPM: "As Jim said before, he welcomed Mr. Sundwall to the race. We certainly welcome Mr. Sundwall's supporters who support the message of less government, less taxes and getting big government off the backs of working families and small businesses. Over the next few days, Jim is going to be traveling across the district meeting people to talk about fighting AIG-style greed on Wall Street and waste in Washington."

Meanwhile, The Hill reports that a Democratic internal poll gives Murphy a lead of 43%-41%, after a Siena poll gave him a 47%-43% lead this morning.

And the Tedisco campaign is saying it is not responsible for an NRCC Web ad using images of Osama bin laden and the 9/11 terrorists to hit Murphy's opposition to the death penalty in all cases, including terrorism, and they are focusing on the race instead of commenting.
