A Re­m­ing­ton Re­search (R) (IVR) poll (Oct. 11-13; 663 LVs; +/-3.8%) con­duc­ted for former con­gres­sion­al aide Dav­id Young (R) shows him lead­ing former state Sen. Staci Ap­pel (D) by 4 points, 46-42%. (re­lease)

AP­PEL AD CON­TRASTS PLAT­FORMS. Ap­pel re­leased a TV ad say­ing she and Young “dif­fer on the is­sues — you might say we’re like apples and or­anges.” The ad then says Young would “give mil­lion­aires tax breaks” and end the Medi­care guar­an­tee. (re­lease)

IOWA RE­PUB­LIC­AN ON YOUNG’S ‘SCHIZO­PHREN­IC CAM­PAIGN.’ The Iowa Re­pub­lic­an, a con­ser­vat­ive web­site, cri­ti­cized Young’s “schizo­fren­ic cam­paign” after he said in a health care for­um that Obama­care is “here to stay” and that he could do more good try­ing to fix it than re­peal it. The site points to how that stance un­der­mines ar­gu­ments he’s made in cam­paigns ads: In one primary ad, he said Obama­care had “ripped apart our health care sys­tem,” and a cur­rent ad cri­ti­cizes Ap­pel for say­ing “what we shouldn’t be do­ing is re­peal­ing it.” (Iowa Re­pub­lic­an)
