From Bob Novak:
The alarming public poll showing Rep. James Walsh (R) losing to challenger and former Rangel staffer Dan Maffei (D) District 25 is not credible, but Walsh leads by only about five points, far less than he is accustomed to at this point in the cycle. This race will be close.
Bill Clinton and Rahm Emanuel will be in town:
The stage will undoubtedly be packed with politicians, but the rally will focus on the candidates running for Congress in the 23rd, 24th and 25th districts, said Ben Yarrow, a spokesman for Clinton.
Maffei, meanwhile, is bringing in the 11th-ranking Democrat in the House, Rep. Rahm Emanuel, for a $199-per-person fundraiser at the Blitman & King law firm in Franklin Square at 5:30 p.m. today.
