A new Baltimore Sun poll shows that Republican Rep. Roscoe Bartlett and Democrat John Delaney are locked in a statistical dead heat at the moment: 41 percent of likely voters surveyed said they're supporting Bartlett, while 42 percent said they support Delaney.
As I'll note in this Thursday's National Journal Daily, Maryland's newly drawn 6th District boundaries cut conservative areas out and added liberal areas in such a way that most have anticipated a Democrat to unseat the 12-term Republican incumbent.
Delaney has to introduce himself to voters across the district, not just the newly-added parts, which is where Bartlett has to increase his name recognition.
