Michigan Congressman says NJ GOP pollster playing both sides

The pollster for the New Jersey Assembly Republicans is now in the middle of a major controversy in Michigan, where an incumbent Congressman has filed a complaint alleging that his challenger in the GOP primary has coordinated expenditures with the conservative Club for Growth by having Adam Geller poll for both the campaign and the 527 organization. Geller works for Tim Walberg, a conservative who is challenging freshman Joe Schwarz for the Republican nomination in the August 7 primary. The Club for Growth typically backs conservative candidates against more moderate incumbents in Republican primaries. They backed Scott Garrett against Marge Roukema in 2000. Geller conducted the CFG poll in the Rhode Island Senate race, where incumbent Lincoln Chafee faces tough primary and general election battles.
