Stender poll has Lance ahead by 4 points

Linda Stender trails Leonard Lance by four percentage points in her campaign’s most recent internal poll, according to sources in the Stender campaign — and confirmed by Democratic officials familiar with the 7th district campaign. Former President Bill Clinton is being dispatched to Cranford on Saturday to help boost Stender’s chances to win the open House seat — which Republicans have held continuously since 1956.

Clinton, one of his party’s biggest draws, would not be spending the Saturday before Election Day in New Jersey if Stender was ahead.
