At first glance, it now appears that Richard Tisei is leading incumbent Congressman John Tierney in the polls. This is considered an extraordinary achievement given the fact Tisei began his run a virtual stranger to much of the sprawling congressional district.
Tierney has been dogged by questions regarding his knowledge of his in-laws criminal enterprises and knowledge as well about his wife’s connection with them.
There remains much time for Tierney to cut Tisei’s lead but this doesn’t appear to be in the cards for him.
Tisei appears to be rising. Tierney appears to be going in the other direction.
Time will tell.
