WHERE'D HE PLAY FOOTBALL?:

Poll: Istook trails Gov. Henry by 8 points (Jim Snyder, 9/22/05, The Hill)

A poll paid for by the Oklahoma state GOP shows Rep. Ernest Istook, now in his seventh term, as the strongest contender against Gov. Brad Henry, a Democrat.

Istook is considering running for the chance to take on Henry, who was elected in 2002 with just more than 43 percent of the vote and is among the GOP’s biggest 2006 targets.

The poll measured five potential Republican nominees against Henry.

Istook finished the strongest but would not win, according to the poll. In that race, Henry would beat Istook 44 to 36 percent.


Mr. Istook is probably polling higher than his name recognition. This is the seat Steve Largent biffed in '02 and the GOP should own it.

I think OJ means definition #16, although others fit as well.
