A few months ago, it would have been absurd to characterize Vito Fossella as the dark horse candidate for the 13th congressional district, but things have certainly taken a turn. That said, the Advance is reporting that a polling firm has been trying to assess whether Vito would have a chance in the general election.
Nobody seems to know for sure, but rumors to that effect exploded across the 13th Congressional District last night after voters this weekend began receiving calls from a polling firm, asking them for their opinions about the scandal-scarred representative.
“I assume the poll is being done by him, or on his behalf,” said one veteran Island political observer who believes Fossella might be angling to get back in the race.
“Why else would you poll now? Nothing else makes sense.”
